New Brunswick blues band coming here

High energy blues rockers Ross Neilsen and The Sufferin’ Bastards are coming to Campbell River next Thursday.

High energy blues rockers Ross Neilsen and The Sufferin’ Bastards are coming to Campbell River.

The group started a cross country tour in New Brunswick and have over 50 dates booked for the fall, as they promote their new album What You Need Volume 2.

They will rock out at the Quinnie at 10 p.m. on Thurs. Nov. 3.

The new acoustic CD showcases the band’s searing guitar work, aggressive vocals and a tight rhythm section.

Ross Neilsen and The Sufferin’ Bastards are hot off a busy summer tour that included numerous blues festivals, one of which was Montreal’s prestigious Jazz Fest, as well as opening spots for Levon Helm and Jonny Lang at Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival.

Neilsen also won an opportunity to represent New Brunswick and Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival in Memphis at the 2012 International Blues Challenge where he’ll compete on a global stage in the solo/duo category.

“We’ve had an incredible year already, playing with some of our heroes… I really do feel like I’m living in a dream,” said Neilsen. “I can’t think of a better way to cap off our year than to tour our magnificent country taking our new album to our favourite clubs in Canada.”
