Happy Hog Roadhouse, Tottenham, ON

They call it Blues North and, so far as southern Ontario is concerned, they are probably right. This is a cool little pub about an hour and a half out of Toronto. It is little, and we wondered at first glance what it was going to be- but we were quickly made welcome and began to set up. Around us were pictures of many great Canadian blues artists who have played here over the last couple of years- Morgan Davis, Michael Pickett, Fathead, Jack de Keyser, and many other pals smiled down at us. Yup, this one would be OK!
Owners Garr and his charming partner provided us with the best Ontario hospitality. Here's Garr with us outside the club. We were well fed, and did three shows to their friendly crowd. Mo' Kauffey drove in from Guelph to hang out- always a pleasure to see him. We should of made him play a few tunes! After some wings with Garr, we're on the road by about 2:AM. We're looking forward to going to London in the morning.
