About the Tour:

The Longest 50th Anniversary Tour Ever!

After 19 albums, countless awards and wowing sold-out audiences around the globe, The Legendary Downchild Blues Band are celebrating over 50 years of playing the blues with a brand-new show featuring their hits like "Flip, Folp & Fly," as well as fan favourites and hidden gems from throughout their illustrious career. Downchild came to international prominence as the inspiration for Hollywood stars Dan Aykroyd and the late John Belushi's hit film, The Blues Brothers. In face, 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.

Founder, Donnie "Mr. Downchild" Walsh, The band's main songwriter, was inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2019, alongside some of the greatest songwriters of our time, like Leondard Cohen, Neil Young  and Joni Mitchell. Downchild countinues to be led by Donnie on guitar and harmonica, singer Chuck Jackson, who also plays harmonica, Pat Carey on tenor sax, Gary Kendall on Bass, Jim Casson on drums, and Tyler Yarema on keyboards. With their signature jump-blues style and infectious, soulful sound, Juno Award winners Downchild deliver a live performance that is second to none and good times guaranteed!
