This week: Hoppin Mad and tweener Bill Johnson

Hoppin’ Mad is Victoria’s own swinging jazz combo, led by multi instrumentalist Simon Stribling.

Bill Johnson has been playing blues for 40 years. A master guitarist, musician, and vocalist, Bill has developed his own brand of laid-back, soul-thumping blues while living on Vancouver Island. Whether on his own, or performing with his band, his unique style and beautiful tone reveal a rare passion for the blues. A Juno nomination in 2012, and four Maple Blues award nominations have earned him a place among the countries best blues artists. From a slow burn to a blast of blues energy, his show is not to be missed. With every new town and performance comes many new amazed fans, as he works his way coast to coast.
