David Vest & The Willing Victims

They don’t make them as real as David Vest anymore. The son of an Alabama sharecropper, the Victoria BC resident is still going strong some 50 plus years since he first stepped on stage with the likes of Roy Orbison and Big Joe Turner. Long revered as one of the great boogie-woogie piano players, Vest is a three-time winner of the Maple Blues Award for Piano Player of The Year (2013, 2015, 2016) and a Blues Artist of the Year nominee (BreakOut West). Vest is also a compelling songwriter, singer and storyteller. Two of his recent albums have been nominated for Record of the Year (MBA), and he’s bringing the band that backed him on those recordings — Teddy Leonard on guitar, along with Downchild’s Gary Kendall on bass and Mike Fitzpatrick on drums.

Vest is also a compelling songwriter, singer and storyteller, and the audience sometimes sings louder than he does on songs like “Crooked Politician.” Devestatin’ Rhythm is his 3rd straight top ten album (Roots Music Report Canada chart).
