Victor first played the Edmonton Blues Festival in 2012 after festival producer Cam Hayden saw him performing in Memphis the year before... and since then we've been trying to get him back...after 5 long years Victor will return, now with a fistful of awards in his hands, including 6 Blues Music Awards as "Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the Year" (2013, 2014,2015, 2016), "B.B. King Entertainer of the Year" and "Band of the Year" (2016); Blues Blast Awards as "Rising Star", New Artist Debut Release" and "Band of the Year" (2013), and multiple performances on the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise.
Simply one of the premier performers in the blues today, "You'll be kicking yourself if you miss him this time", says festival producer Hayden, "Victor is on his way, way up in the blues world, and we are lucky and thrilled to have him making his way to Edmonton once again this summer"! This blues supergroup came about after a series of conversations between Bob Corritore and festival producer Cam Hayden. Cam was more than happy to accommodate, and the letter included the line "It's so important that we honour these great musicians while they are still with us." "That got both Bob and myself thinking", says Cam, "You can't talk the talk without walking the walk, and over the course of numerous phone calls Bob and I decided that we should put together a band that showcased 3 generations of the blues...with Henry Gray as the focal point. The time is now; after being a judge at the finals of the Memphis Bound competition to select acts representing Northern Alberta at the 2017 International Blues Challenge, festival producer Cam Hayden was knocked out by the band's development, professionalism, and talent...they had to be here, and what could be better than to have both IBC contestants on the stage, back to back, Sunday August 27!
