Back by popular demand, David Gogo will hit the Joe’s Garage stage Sept. 30 with vigour and gusto.

Gogo is a hard-working blues/rock guitarist and has a history of awards to show for it — three Juno nominations, the Saturday Night Blues’ Great Canadian Blues Award for a lifetime contribution to the blues in Canada, Western Canadian Music Awards’ Musician of the Year, and twice named Maple Blues Guitarist of the Year.

Over the past couple of decades, he has performed with blues and rock legends B.B. King, Bo Diddley, George Thorogood and ZZ Top, among many others — most recently opening for Johnny Winter.

Touring relentlessly, Gogo has spent most of the year in Canada, with a few trips to the Netherlands. He will tour there again this fall in support of the European release of Soul-Bender, and then dazzle the rest of Europe in 2012.

$20 advance tickets for this event are on sale at Bop City Records. The Joe’s Garage kitchen opens at 6:30 p.m. on show night and is open for the night. Reserved seating for people coming for dinner — all other seats are on a first-come, first-served basis.
