Saturday night it was JW-JONES BLUES BAND.  An unbelievably tight power trio especially considering their young years - from right here in Ottawa! JW on firewagon guitar and vocals, Martin Regimbald on bass and Jeff Asselin on drums. Fresh from 3 shows in southern Ontario opening for Kim Wilson & The Fabulous Thunderbirds the boys hit the Cove stage with a vengeance. The opening songs were so fast that I think everyone was in awe - it took a few before the dance floor got going but it sure rocked from then on. One of the highlights of the night was when the 3 of them moved over to play each other's instrument midway through the song and kept it going. "Couldn't wipe the smile off my face for 3 hours...JW, you and the boys are awesome!" Ian Jackson, Westport (a regular who has been to almost every Show over the past 4 years)


"Best Dinner & Show experience ever. Blues band was incredible. JW is very talented. Totally amazing!" 10 out of 10 for venue, food, and sound, 200 for service and 6,000 for the band! Emily Clapperton, Almonte

"I had a blues blast!! Organizers & staff know all the right moves...I might have acquired a new healthy addiction! I love JW Jones Blues Band"  10 out of 10 for everything. Nancy Doucet, Kingston (first-timer)



$511.50 was raised for Westport In Bloom
