Maple Blues Award winner David Vest has been rockin' and shoutin' the blues since 1957 and selling out shows at Hermann's for years. For quite a while now he's had the same core group backing him up: Tom Bowler (guitar), Ryan Tandy (bass), and Damian Graham (drums). By this time their rapport with Vest is near-telepathic, a show in itself really. A good thing, too, given DV's propensity for shifting gears mid-song and heading off into the great unknown.
