Steve Kozak makes his Upstairs Lounge debut just in time for Father’s Day

The event is taking place on Friday, June 15, at Bozzini’s intimate Upstairs Lounge

B.C.’s blues crooner, Steve Kozak, is making his debut appearance in Chilliwack at Bozzini’s Upstairs Lounge on Friday, June 15.

The show is “just in time for an early Father’s Day treat,” wrote Emmanuel Asprakis in an email. “(And) Bozzini’s is excited to finally have one of (our) most requested acts … in the Upstairs Lounge for an intimate performance.”

Appearing with Kozak will be John “The Colonel” Fuhrmann, who plays harmonica, and Roger Brant on bass: the three together form a trio that has decades of blues experience between them.

B.C.-born and raised, Kozak has been a mainstay in the western Canadian blues scene since the mid-eighties, when, backed by some of Vancouver’s top musicians, Kozak built a reputation as one of Canada’s premier blues acts and became known as the go-to guy in Vancouver for the west coast blues sound.

And when it comes to a tasty west coast blues guitar sound, Kozak’s name is at the top of the list in Canada– just ask greats like Duke Robillard and James Harman who have shared the stage with this gifted bandleader, instrumentalist, writer and singer.

Kozak, who was 2018 Western Canadian Music Awards Blues Artist of the Year nominee, as well as Maple Blues winner and nominee, will appear at the Upstairs Lounge on Friday, June 15. The doors open at 8:00 p.m., and the show starts at 9:30. Tickets are $20, and can be purchased at the door, or reserved by calling (604) 702 – 0744.
