Life, Death & the Blues

Join us for a special evening of music concert/theatre production created and performed by Raoul Bhaneja (of Raoul and the Big Time)

Life, Death and The Blues argues for us to see The Blues as an international art form that belongs to all of us; an art form that we all need to keep alive, says Artistic Director Andy McKim.Raoul and Divine definitely keep the music alive by leading us deeper into the personal, passionate, social and sexual world of The Blues.

Starring Raoul Bhaneja, Divine Brown & members of The Big Time: Jake Chisholm - guitar, Tom Bona - drums, Chris Banks - upright bass

This innovative concert/theatre hybrid created by Gemini nominated actor and Maple Blues Award winner, Raoul Bhaneja combines autobiography, interview, live music and a multi-media canvas that explores the power, passion and meaning of the blues. Accompanied by the Juno award-winning Canadian R&B/Soul singer Divine Brown with music provided by members of Bhanejas blues band, The Big Time, the driving score will be original and classic, acoustic and electric. Audience interaction and multimedia elements will transport viewers back in time, while also exploring The Blues now. Each night will feature a different epilogue performance interview and jam session with a living Blues legend.

A full description of the production is available at:

We will be attending one of the preview shows for this production.

Tickets: $22.50 (+ $2.50 fees)

    I hope everyone who came enjoyed the show. It was interesting to see where Raoul's taken this production, having seen some of his earlier run throughs of it. Fantastic musicians, Divine Brown was amazing and always great to see John Mays. Different blues artist will be featured at the end of each evening. Get tickets to see it before it's gone!
