Showcase a smashing success!

Toronto Blues Summit 7
The Montreal Blues Society co-hosted a private event on Saturday, January 17th along with the Ottawa Blues Society, during the course of Blues Summit 7 in Toronto. The showcase was a chance for Quebec and Ottawa artists to strut their stuff in front of an audience comprised of festival buyers, media, agents, and record label execs.
Feedback about this edition of the showcase has been overwhelmingly positive. A special thanks to Jerry Vietz, master brewer at Unibroue, who made this edition of our event 'one better', and our emcee, Marc Neveu. Below is a list of the musicians who presented last night, and partial list of attendees we spotted in the audience. See the photos below.
