Presenting ... Juno nominee David Gogo on March 25

Y'know, I think we're the luckiest folks in the world. How else can you explain getting to host 2007 Juno nominee on March 25, a mere week before the Junos?

We are so excited to have the opportunity to present a solo acoustic performance by the fantastic bluesman David Gogo as BobCat Artist #2.

A native of Nanaimo, British Columbia, David has already won two Maple Blues awards as Guitarist of the Year, and his new album Acoustic is up for “Blues Album of the Year” at the 2007 Juno Awards in Saskatoon on April 1st and David will be in attendance.

Whether it's one of his own compositions like "All I can Do" or standards like "Dust my Broom", David's passionate vocals and prodigious guitar skills will leave you hooting and shouting for more -- at least that's what his playing does to people like Johnny Winter, Colin James, and Jeff Healey.

David has shared the stage with everyone from B.B. King to George Thorogood to Little Feat and Downchild, and festivalgoers may recall his outstanding performance opening for ZZ Top at the 2005 Ottawa Bluesfest.

He is truly a joy to listen to, and (in my totally biased opinion) you'd be crazy to say no to an opportunity to see him in the uniquely intimate setting of a BobCat concert.

You NEED to hear this guy. So come on out. (If you need samples, check out David's Web site or MySpace page.

David Gogo will perform chez BobCat on Sunday evening, March 25 ,starting around 7:00. I know, I know, it's a Sunday -- but we promise you'll be heading home no later than 10, although David's playing may get you so charged up the last thing you'll want will be an early bedtime.

Cost for this exceptional show will be $25, and we encourage you to bring some light snacks along. You will not be disappointed. Reserve your seat early by e-mailing us.
