Take the rhythm of the Maritime Acadian music, season well with Louisiana zydeco blues, add a twist of Highway 61 era Dylan, serve it up with great showmanship, and you've got a potent musical cocktail that will have your head spinning and your feet dancing! (Island Folks Festival)

Gary Comeau is a singer-songwriter and musician of unusual diversity and talent. Playing a range of instruments including guitar, mandolin, fiddle, and piano he delivers originally crafted, high energy, New Orleans-style rockin' roots and blues. Although Gary's own roots are French-Acadian - he was born and raised in Nova Scotia - his soul seems to have taken a long and inspiring detour through Louisiana and the Mississippi Delta. And while Gary does not consider himself to be a cajun or zydeco artist per se (it's just the vibe that runs through the tunes I write) he's probably the most southern-sounding player in town. The Georgia Straight states without hesitation that Vancouver's roots-music scene has immensely benefited from Comeau's presence.

The Voodoo Allstars Trio, featuring Gary Comeau, Tim Hearsey & Chris Nordquist - the "swamp kings from the west coast" at their collective primal stripped-down best - will launch their new CD at this gig. Put on your dancing shoes!
