JACK DE KEYZER- TRIBUTE TOUR For 46 years or roughly a couple million miles , bluesman, guitarist, singer, song writer, Jack de Keyzer has been hitting the road, rail and air to bring his brand of guitar driven blues across Canada and around the globe. With 12 albums, 2 Junos and 7 Maple Blues Awards under his belt, De Keyzer’s music is steeped in Chicago blues, with a broad range of influences ranging from Detroit’s Motown, Muscle Shoals deep soul , Memphis’ rock and roll, Philadelphia’s funky soul jazz and London, England’s (where de Keyzer was born) blues rock. De Keyzer knows first hand as he has played with many first generation pioneers of these sounds and styles. (Bo Diddley, Otis Rush, Etta James, King Biscuit Boy and Ronnie Hawkins to name a few) His latest recording TRIBUTE (2020) features twelve new original blues, rock and soul songs and is a tribute to all the great influences de Keyzer has been inspired by through the years.
