He is known as one of Canada’s hardest working and most prolific blues guitar virtuosos and David Gogo will be showcasing his blistering guitar licks and soulful vocals at the Errington Hall May 10.

Gogo who calls Nanaimo home has amassed a worldwide fan base and has an impressive list of accomplishments.

He has earned four Juno nominations, the 2012 Western Canadian Music Award for Blues Recording of the Year, the CBC Saturday Night Blues’ Great Canadian Blues Award for a lifetime contribution to the blues in Canada and has twice been named Maple Blues Guitarist of the Year.

He has played on stage with Johnny Winter, Otis Rush, Albert Collins and Bo Diddley and has opened for ZZ Top, The Tragicially Hip. In March 2013 he performed as the supporting act for blues legend B.B. King for the third time in his career.

Gogo has released thirteen albums to date and has been a guest on a number of recordings.  He has composed music for television and major motion pictures and his songs have been performed and recorded by musicians worldwide.

He continues to tour relentlessly around North America and Europe.

Whether he’s  performing his hard-driving blues rock during an electric performance or drawing the crowd in with his humour and down-to-earth personality during an acoustic show, audiences everywhere can attest to Gogo’s outstanding talent.
