With his hard, edgy tone, rough and rowdy vocals, and barroom boogie aesthetic, Canadian singer, guitarist, and keyboardist Pat Travers is a fine example of a Canadian bluesy hard rock act. He arrived during the '70s heyday of hard blues-rocking guitar heroes.
His eight-album run for Polydor – from his eponymous 1976 debut through 1984's Hot Shot – netted seven Top 200 chart placements and two Top 40 singles, including the party anthem classic "Boom Boom (Out Go the Lights)." Subsequently, he placed four singles in the Hot 100, and two more in the upper rungs of the Mainstream Rock Songs charts. Travers is equally adept at playing funk, jazz, and prog. He has toured almost annually for more than 40 years, playing more than 150 dates per year.
With special guest The Jeremy Edge Project.
Led by former Candlelight Red guitarist Jeremy Edge on lead vocals and guitar, The Jeremy Edge Project brings a modern edge to blues and explosive guitar-fueled ‘70s style rock. Accompanied by John Delowery on bass, Ray Geida at the drums, Charlie Calv (Angel) on keyboards and Byron Winchester on harmonica, the band is thrilled to join rock legend Pat Travers on a string of east coast dates this summer to support its recent release, Saints and Souls Vol 1 & 2.
