Perhaps blues legend, Buddy Guy said it best with his high acclaim, “This young man is one of the people who will keep the blues alive.” The Canadian born, Billboard Top 10 Blues Artist, IBC Winner and JUNO Nominee, JW-Jones is known for his high-energy shows.

As he continues to evolve as one of Canada’s most versatile bluesmen, with one foot in the terra firma of the traditional blues espoused by the likes of Howlin’ Wolf sideman Hubert Sumlin and harmonica legend Charlie Musselwhite (who both guested on Jones’ memorable Midnight Memphis Sun, recorded at the historic Sun Studio) and blues contemporaries Robert Cray, for whom the JW-Jones band has occasionally opened, he continues to challenge and raise his standards through his recordings and the 130 dates on average yearly that he clocks in on the road.

The Ore Dock is proud to welcome such a talent and pair the night with a performance by Wisconsin’s The Brothers Quinn into the wee wee hours.

Free Admission brought to you by The Marquette Area Blues Society and Ore Dock Brewing Company.
