This year, Blenders and The Co-operators are thrilled to present the StirCrazy Blues Concert on Saturday, Feb. 25.  


The concert will feature the 24th Street Wailers, and will be at the Lyric Theatre.
Their sound features the freewheeling period in the ‘40s and ‘50s when the blues gave birth to rock and roll in black communities in major American cities.
Experienced, road-tested and tougher than a two by four, The 24th Street Wailers are five musicians who originally met in music school.
Led by Lindsay Beaver, a wild and crazy front woman and singing drummer, the rest of the band is filled out by Michael Archer on Upright Bass, Marc Doucet on Guitar, Jesse Whiteley on Piano, and Jonny Wong on wailing Sax.
This band has been winning over the masses with their unbeatable live performances and a sense of showmanship from a time gone by, something many consider lost in modern day music. 
Their 2014 Juno-nominated album, Wicked, has received widespread radio play including radio shows and broadcasters, as well as CBC.
This swinging-blues group will be a fantastic concert audiences will not want to miss.
Tickets are $40 and can be purchased at Pharmasave. Doors will open at 7:30 p.m. and the music will begin at 8:30 p.m.
