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

The harp-driven blues band, Lazy Mike and the Rockin’ Recliners with “Lazy” Mike Mallon on harp and vocals, Kyle Guineau on guitar, Bob “Blue” Berry on bass guitar and vocals, and Ryan “Martha” Connell on drums has been rockin’ Vancouver Island for a few years now. They play at festivals and fairs, plus licensed bars and clubs.

“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, 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 are responsible for a whole mess of originals. After the success of their first compact disc, Live at the Blues Underground, recorded at the Nanaimo Blues Society’s Blues Underground, the band recently released their second compact disc titled Life’s Been Pretty Good, another great collection of original rockin’ blues tunes which is available on their website.

From slow to fast, traditional blues to funky, there’s enough on their plate to please any musical appetite.

They will be playing originals as well as cover tunes at the Shady this Saturday, Oct. 1 starting at 7 p.m. and continues until 10 p.m.

There is no cover charge to attend.

The Shady Rest Pub is located on Highway 19A just past the Crystal Terrace development.
