Get ready for some fun, Rockin’ Rollin’ Blues Sat. Apr 8 here at the Gibsons Legion!
Mark Crissinger is a 2017 Maple Blues Award nominee who now lives on Vancouver Island but he considers the Sunshine Coast the birthplace of his solo career. It is here that he wrote his first two solo albums, developed his one-man show, and played two Pender Harbour Blues Festivals. Since 2009, he has released five solo albums and played 800 shows including fourteen eastern Canadian tours and several west coast music festivals. Blending traditional themes with clever lyrics and modern arrangements, Mark’s songs capture his singer-songwriter soul and the blues in his heart.
“In the last twenty-five years, I have played many festivals, intimate concerts, and hundreds of pub-style shows. I can read a crowd very well and know how to keep them entertained. Playing to the audience is one of my strongest attributes. It’s what I’m known for and when I see them enjoying the experience it makes me very happy.”
“It’s very exciting to be back on the coast. I’m sure there will be a few surprise guest musicians sitting in at this show.”
Saturday, April 8th he hosts a blues dance party at the Gibsons Legion with a full band including Peter Van Deursen on keys and Tim Rannard on drums.
Show starts at 8pm
Tickets are $10 members/$15 guests.
