UWHSBB have been around since 1978, are former RCA Recording Artists and members of the Victoria Music Hall of Fame. We toured extensively in the 80′s opening for such legends as Muddy Waters, Joe Cocker, James Cotton, Koko Taylor and Paul Butterfield to name a few.

As well this past January 2015 UWHSBB won the chance to represent BC in Memphis at the International Blues Challenge.

Our new CD “Still Burnin it Up” was released last year.

We have been doing a Christmas Tribute to the Blues Songs of Christmas for the past two years and we are looking forward to bringing our special the Show to The Heritage Playhouse in Gibsons for the first time season.

This not your usual Christmas Show of the same old same old Christmas Carols. This show gives you a look into the souls of these fabulous Christmas Blues Songs written by the Legends of the Blues.

This show is a collection of traditional Blues Christmas Tunes from the 20’s, 30’s, 40’s 50’s and 60’s by the likes of Louis Jordan, Big Joe Turner, BB King, Eric Clapton, Charles Brown and Etta James plus many more.

The band is made up of members of UWHSBB Hank (Uncle Wiggly) Lionhart – Vocals, Lonnie Glass – Bass, Mark Comerford – Guitar, Matt McLean – Trumpet, Dave Rowse – Sax, Andy Graffiti– Drums with Special Guests Dennis Meneely – former Streetheart Member – Keyboards, Paul Wainwright – Sax and Deb Rhymer – Vocals.

This show played to sold out houses and standing ovations in Alberta last winter and had rave reviews on the Vancouver Island shows.This is our first opportunity and only appearance on the Sunshine Coast. You do not want to miss this refreshing take on a Christmas Show.
