STEVE KOZAK & THE WEST COAST ALL-STARS
Time 8:00 pm
Vancouver born and based Steve Kozak has been a mainstay on the western Canadian blues scene since the mid eighties. He gained national recognition in 2013, winning a Maple Blues award for New Artist or Group of the Year in Canada.
Backed by some of Vancouver’s top musicians, Kozak has built a reputation as one of Canada’s premier Blues acts and is known as the go-to guy in Vancouver for the west coast blues sound.
An accomplished and tasty guitar player with a relaxed vocal style, Kozak sings and plays blues guitar in flavours ranging from classic Chicago blues, to swing, jump blues, Texas shuffles and early R&B with even a hint of rockabilly thrown in for good measure. He and his band can switch gears from driving danceable boogie to deep blues to soul ballads; he’s always mixing it up to fit the occasion. The Steve Kozak Band features: Steve Kozak on guitar and vocal, Dave Webb on piano, Roger Brant on Bass and John Nolan on drums.
