They don't make them as real as David Vest anymore. The son of an Alabama sharecropper, the longtime Victoria BC resident is still going strong 50 years after he first stepped on stage with the likes of Big Joe Turner. Long revered as one of the great boogie-woogie piano players, Vest is a six-time winner of Canada's national Maple Blues Award for Piano Player of the Year.  

Vest is also a prolific songwriter. He wrote the first songs ever recorded by Tammy Wynette, and his tunes have been covered by artists ranging from Paul deLay to the legendary Downchild Blues Band, whose cover of Vest's "Worried About The World" gave Downchild their first number one song (Roots Music Report blues song chart).

The concert starts at 7:30 p.m., with doors opening for dinner service at 6 p.m.

Tickets are available through Beacon Ridge Productions.
