November 19, 2010 - DAVID ROTUNDO BAND

Back by very popular demand DAVID ROTUNDO and his Band returned to BLUES ON THE RIDEAU AT THE COVE INN, Westport ON for a third time November 19th (the most of any artist to appear at the Series over the past 6 seasons) playing to a full house (the Show was Sold Out almost a month ago). He delivered his usual dynamite performance.

Nominated once again for HARMONICA PLAYER OF THE YEAR for the 2011 Maple Blues Awards David showed us why - "blowin' for broke" and singing with passion all night long. His new guitarist Italian-born Alberto Colombo on guitar provided a very nice addition to an already excellent band that included Des Brown on guitar, James Rasmussen on bass and Andrew Austin on drums. David Rotundo continues to be one of the best, most entertaining Blues bands in the country! He'll be invited back for sure. The Cove served up one of its famous delicious roast beef buffet dinners.
