Crystal Head Vodka Presents:


The Legendary Downchild Blues Band: 50th Anniversary Tour Featuring Special Guests Colin James and Suzie Vinnick



After 18 albums, countless awards and wowing sold‐out audiences around the globe, THE LEGENDARY DOWNCHILD BLUES BAND are celebrating their 50th Anniversary this year with a brand‐new show featuring hits like “Flip, Flop & Fly,” as well as fan favourites and hidden gems from throughout their illustrious career.

Downchild will be joined on stage for this very special performance by long-time friend, seven time Juno Award winning singer, songwriter and blues guitarist extaordinaire, the one and only Colin James! With so much talent on one stage, sparks are sure to fly!!


Downchild came to international prominence as the inspiration for Dan Aykroyd and the late John Belushi’s hit film, The Blues Brothers. In fact, two Downchild songs, “Shotgun Blues” and “(I Got Everything I Need) Almost” were even covered on The Blues Brothers’ 1978 multi‐platinum album Briefcase Full of Blues.

The band is lead by founder, Donnie “Mr. Downchild” Walsh on guitar and harmonica, singer Chuck Jackson, who also plays harmonica, tenor sax man Pat Carey, Michael Fonfara (who was a member of the early American rock supergroup Rhinoceros and Lou Reed’s band) plays keyboards, Gary Kendall on bass and drummer Mike Fitzpatrick.

With their signature jump‐blues style and infectious, soulful sound, Juno Award winners Downchild deliver a live performance that is second to none, and this special anniversary show is one ‐ not to be missed!



We'll also have Suzie Vinick opening for the band - see her perform "Crazy 'Bout Lovin' You" below!
