Colin James Blues Trio
Multi-Juno award winner and Platinum Recording star Colin James will be returning to Vernon for a show at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre on April 2nd at 7:30 P.M. James and his new all-star Blues Trio will be on a Western Canadian tour this spring in both B.C. and Alberta.
Two years ago, near the end of the Pandemic, James had to split his show in Vernon into two shows to accommodate B.C. Health rules at the time and both shows were completely sold out. This time around, things are back to the new version of normal and James is looking forward to playing a full capacity show for all his many fans in the Okanagan area.
Over the years James has worked with some of the world’s greatest artists including Bonnie Rait, Keith Richards, Lenny Kravitz, ZZ Top, Mavis Staples, Carlos Santana, Jeff Healy, Albert Collins, Buddy Guy, and many many more.
Of course, major commercial hits are no stranger to one of Canada’s most well known and most respected artists. Songs like "Just came Back”" Five Long Years", "Voodoo Thing", "Keep on Loving me Baby", “Into the Mystic", "Man’s Gotta Be a Stone", and several more have become household favorites for thousands of people across this country. Looking back over Colin’s career, it’s a timeline rich in highlights. His 1988 self-titled album was the fastest selling album in Canadian history. It won him his very first Juno and an opening spot-on tour with none other than Keith Richards. His second album, Sudden Stop, featured the hit, "Just Came back”, which reached #3 on the US radio charts and earned him the Juno award for Single of the Year. Colin was next credited with launching the swing revival, thanks to his wildly popular Little Big Band, which has released four successful albums to date.
