A high energy blues band is set to stir the crowd at the Shady Rest Pub this weekend, with some rockin' guitar, bass and drums topped off with a fiery dose of harp.

“We’ve always had the harmonica in there it’s just this last little bit we have really been concentrating more on our original stuff, and more blues,” said Mike Mallon, of Lazy Mike and the Rockin’ Recliners, harp player and lead vocalist with the group.

The Port-Alberni band has been together two years, but members have played for much longer in and around the area. Mallon is also a member of the well known Malloomba Boogie Band.

Lazy Mike and the Rockin’ Recliners play regularly at Deez Bar and Grill in Qualicum Beach and have also been known to play at the Rod and Gun in Parksville. The group has released a CD, Life’s Been Pretty Good, available on their website.

They will be playing originals as well as cover tunes at the Shady this Saturday, April 2 at 7 p.m. There is no cover charge to attend.
