4th Annual Blues for Debi Benefit Concert Features the Duke of Blues

NCF Blues for DebiS.C.C. Promotions presents the fourth annual Blues for Debi Charity Concert taking place Friday, April 6th 2018 at the Upper Hall of the Caruso Club. This year’s concert features the Duke of Blues himself, Duke Robillard.

Michael John “Duke” Robillard is an American guitarist and singer who founded his first band, Roomful of Blues in 1967. He was also a member of the Fabulous Thunderbirds replacing Jimmy Vaughan, the older brother of Stevie Ray Vaughan. Called “one of the great players” by blues royalty B.B. King, Duke’s music tightropes traditional blues and experimentation – and he’s been nominated for two Grammys because of it. Local musicians Gary Disalle and the Affordables will also be entertaining the crowd.

Tickets are $40 in advance and $50 at the door. Tickets are available at the Caruso Club office, Motley Kitchen, Jett Landry Music, A&J Home Hardware and the Northern Cancer Foundation office. Doors open at 8:00 p.m.

Tony Anselmo, former owner of Downtown Sudbury’s iconic Records on Wheels and his family are well known in Sudbury for their love of music. If you have been involved with music in some way in our community, there is no doubt that a benefit concert is the perfect way to honour Tony’s late wife Debi Anselmo. Debi lost her battle with cancer on May 28, 2014.

All proceeds support the Northern Cancer Foundation for patient care, research and equipment at the Northeast Cancer Centre.

Here’s a little sample from the Blast Furnace Blues Festival in Bethlehem, PA for you to enjoy!

In March 1956, Sudbury Aviation Limited inaugurated its flying school on Whitewater Lake in Azilda. At the time, it was the only school authorized by the government to train pilots in Northern Ontario.
