CANADA’S PREMIER HEARTFELT TRIBUTE TO STEVIE RAY AND DOUBLE TROUBLE

After recording 5 more studio albums and 6 live compilations, Stevie Ray Vaughn went on to win 6 Grammy awards after being nominated 12 times and selling out countless shows the world over. Though he died more than two decades ago, the guitar legend and his influence can be seen and heard everywhere as it continues to grow.

Few of Stevie’s acolytes likely have the same dedication as Dave Ryan, who has spent the last decade getting the details just right as the front man of the Toronto-based band, The Stevie Ray Vaughan Experience. In addition to Dave’s attention to Stevie’s guitar work, vocal stylings, and guitar tone, there are many other visual elements of the show including look-alike hats from Stevie’s favourite, Texas Hatters, replica guitars/amps, and yes, the man even has the same blue peacock tattooed on center of the his chest!

With thousands of hours of rehearsal under his belt, Dave has assembled the perfect players to form Canada’s premier heartfelt tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble. As SVR fans know the music is high energy and very danceable! Relive SVR hits including Pride & Joy, Cold Shot, Voodoo Chile, Crossfire and so many more!

What happens when an ensemble of some of Ontario's finest musicians who just happen to live in Muskoka get together? The Muskoka Blues Connection! This power house band features multiple vocalists, a horn section, harmonica and a super-tight rhythm section delivering a dynamic night of Blues, Soul, Funk, R&B and Rock classics as well as original music.

After creating the hugely popular Norther Blues Reviews shows that sold out theatres for a decade, Tobin formed the Muskoka Blues Connection in 2017. Come see the latest evolution of this Muskoka blues phenomenon.
