It’s been said that the average human being smiles roughly 7,000 times a year. The Jo Blo’s family strives each and every day to be part of as many of those smiles as possible. Since our grand re-opening, it’s been our goal to transform the now Jo Blo’s Rock & Wok into the very best venue for live entertainment and amazing times. As such, we are thrilled to present an incredible fall-winter lineup.
As has been a year of firsts for Jo Blo’s, Ladies’ Night hosted by Maureen Brown will debut August 29, and will grace the stage every Thursday from 7-11pm. Maureen will be accompanied by two players, and will present an evening filled with dancing, singing and guaranteed fun. Classically-trained in drums and percussion, a 4-time “Canadian Blues Drummer” award-recipient, join Maureen each week for an evening of musicianship, showcasing some of the best female talents. On Fridays, we continue to host a wide range of rock bands, playing originals and best hits from then and now. #FridayNightsRock is a great way to kickoff the weekend, and an easy evening out, as shows end at midnight.
Our hearts filled with excitement, we are beyond stoked to welcome back our house band, The Mighty Duck Blues Band. Gary Kendall, Jim Casson, Dave Curry, and Canada Dave (Dave Torosian) return to the stage every Saturday at 2:30pm. With over a decade delivering the very best Blues in Niagara, the Duck Squad will return to their new home at Jo Blo’s Rock & Wok. What makes this series truly spectacular, is the stellar lineup of specials guests each week. From David Vest, Lance Anderson, Chuck Jackson, Pat Carey and Jerome Godboo to name a few—Saturday matinees with the MDBB!
Sunday funday never looked better. What a way to end the weekend, than a Sunday residency from LMT Connection — The best of Funk & Soul is coming to Jo Blo’s from 4-8pm. Playing together for 30 years, over 6,500 shows all over Europe and China, and a 16-year gig at the famous Orbit Room in Toronto. True masters of their craft, LMT are sure to pack the house each Sunday. On alternate Sundays, we will welcome Old Plank Road. No stranger to the Rock & Wok’s stage, these guys always bring electric energy to their sets, and musical variety to their ensemble—showcasing the fiddle, mandolin, saxophone and harmonica.
An unprecedented lineup of live entertainment is upon us at Jo Blo’s Rock & Wok. We can’t wait to share those smiles, memories, and great times together Jo’s NATIONNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!
