Aldergrove-based blues rockers The Joel Brown Band will be performing their brand of original blues at Station House Pub in Aldergrove on Friday, July 22 at 8 p.m. All proceeds from the all-ages event will go to support an Aldergrove family who recently lost their home and possessions to fire.

The “JBB” have been hard at work on songs for their up-and-coming album.

Lead singer and guitarist Joel Brown and bass player Justin Koshman just returned from a month-long songwriting tour of the southern states.

“There are a few songs that we haven’t showed anyone and we can’t wait to see what people’s reactions will be,” said Justin.

A lot of effort has gone into creating some strong material for the group’s first full-length album. The trio have gone a little deeper into the blues and their raw live performances are impressive.

“We haven’t played on stage together for some time so we are super excited to show our hometown crowd what we have been up to,” said drummer Matt Eldridge.

Tickets will be sold in advance for $15, which includes a beverage and a burger. They are available at the Station House or through Scott Brown, 604-857-9027.

Come out to support a family in need and enjoy some local talent.
