Okanagan Restoration Services Blues Jam

This past spring, I approached the community-minded people at Okanagan Restoration Services if they would like to sponsor a blues jam at Don Cherry’s here in my hometown of Vernon, BC. This was just as the COVID restrictions were lifted. They said yes, and the rest is history. From the first show, there has been a huge outpouring of support for the blues from the wonderful staff at Don Cherry’s to the musicians of Vernon, and all the blues fans that come out to the Jams. “The blues is the roots; the rest is the fruits.” – Willy Dixon
