Vernon Has a New Home for the Blues!

Okanagan Restoration Blues Jam
Aug. 17 (Wednesday)
Don Cherry’s Sports Grill
6:30 pm with Marv Machura

Vernon has new home for the Blues as Don Cherry's hosts the Okanagan Restoration Blues Jam on August 17, Wednesday.

Marv Machura, the host of the jam and local singer-songwriter known for his Western Canadian Roots Music, says that he "was hungry for a regular blues jam in Vernon," and so he approached the new owners and managers of the Vernon Lodge and Conference Centre with the idea.

They agreed and along with key support from community-minded Okanagan Restoration Services, the blues jam was born in the spring of 2022.

Machura continues, "We have had a monthly jam since April, and it continues to grow in popularity with local musicians and blues fans." He says, "The blues are the universal music for young, old, and everyone in between."

Finally Machura notes, "There are so many great players in our town: Professional blues players like Les Copeland (David Honey-Boy Edwards) and Russel Jackson (BB King), and local favourites like Blind-Dog Guido, and Tim Reardon. They have been joining the jam regularly since it started along with many other talented musicians from Vernon and beyond. The support has been amazing!"

The next Okanagan Blues Jam is set for Aug 17 (Wednesday) starting a 6:30 in Don Cherry's Sports Grill in the Vernon Lodge and Conference Centre.
