Tickets are on sale now for Mike Goudreau and the Boppin’ Blues Band performance at the Pavillon des arts et de la Culture de Coaticook. As the band celebrates its 30th anniversary, the band will perform a “Best Of” of their catalogue with both original pieces and distinctive covers of songs by other artists.

The Boppin Blues Band first founded in 1992 when a group of five enthusiastic friends; Christian Gagné, Guy Breton, Mike Goudreau, Richard « Mr. Shuffle » Bergeron and Mario Côté, submitted a demo tape to the Labatts Blues Festival program director. The director, impressed with their work, booked the band for festivals in Sherbrooke, Trois-Rivières, Jonquière and Hull, jumpstarting their career in the industry. Now 30 years later, with six albums, numerous awards, and nominations as well as commercial success in American Network television and Hollywood, the Boppin’ Blues Band is happy to return to where it all started.
