Season's greetings!  It's been a while since the last newsletter. Hoping this finds everyone well!  I have a new live CD out, Voodoo Boogie, the companion to 2010 Juno Winner The Corktown Sessions. Corktown was mostly set 1 and Voodoo Boogie is the best of the rest. It's available, along with my other discs, through Indiepool and has been getting some nice reviews.

2015 will mark my 40th year in the music business and 30th as the Jack de Keyzer band, so we are planning some special shows for the New Year to celebrate. Thanks for your long time support; it's been a terrific ride so far!  All the best to everyone over the Holidays and 2015.

We still have a few shows left for 2014, and you can get full details at my website.

Praise for Voodoo Boogie:

Jack as in Canada's premiere blues guitarist,  he's got a new cd out - Voodoo Boogie and it smokes with the tones that everyone associates with Jack. All in all this is a must have cd. It's Jack De Keyzer as Canada's king of the blues guitar. Bob Dylan once said if Jack de Keyzer lived in the U.S. he'd be famous. Thankfully Jack lives in Canada and to true Canadian blues lovers, he's as famous as it gets.    Ken Wallis Blues Blast 101.5FM

Jack de Keyzer has been the man for a long time. The band was hot the whole night, and it must have been hard not putting most of these on the first album. His cover of Muddy Waters' You Shook Me features ferocious guitar solos. At one point he plays a run that takes him away from the key but back into it seconds later with an ingenious progression, something jazz pros would love. The guy can play; he is a monster.   Bob Mersereau, CBC radio

De Keyzer has survived and thrived all these years because he gets it; he's an entertainer. It's about his audience; connecting, engaging and always delivering something new and memorable. Because he's fan-centric people want to see him, support him and say thank you with a standing ovation and a promise to see him again.    Karma Productions, London
