Phoenix Promotions and Kewadin Casino are excited to announce “The Best of Michigan Blues”. We have scheduled FOUR great bands from across the state of Michigan to come and share their love for rock and blues music with you on February 10th, 2018 at Kewadin Casino in Sault Ste. Marie! Music lovers prepare yourselves for one of the biggest Rock & Roll/Blues Concerts that has ever taken place on this side of the Mackinac Bridge as international touring sensations, LAITH AL‑SAADI and THE CHRIS CANAS BAND are ready to blow the roof off DreamMakers Theater for your listening and viewing pleasure! Local rock & blues favorites Chord On Bluz and Project 906 will also be hitting the stage—each to jam out their style of awesomeness!
In 2016, Laith Al-Saadi won America’s hearts and landed a spot on the finale on NBC’s “The Voice”. Now he is poised to bring his authentic blend of blues, soul, and classic rock to audiences around the world. Laith has always had the perfect combination of Midwestern hustle and incredible music chops—honed at the University of Michigan School of Music in his hometown of Ann Arbor, and on stages across the country working with legends like Taj Mahal, Luther Allison, Buddy Guy, Son Seals, Greg Allman, BB King, and so many others. Laith Al-Saadi’s most recent release “Real” topped the blues charts for 5 weeks and the top album chart for 2 weeks. Laith has also had four singles in the top ten iTunes singles charts, and his albums “In the Round” and “Long Time Coming” spent time at the top of the rock and album charts. Guitar World Magazine has called Laith Al-Saadi as a cross between “Danny Grotton and Buddy Guy at their best”, and Guitar Center crowned him as one of the top four blues guitarists in the United States.
The Chris Canas Band is an international touring group that also hails from the city of maize and blue. This award-winning band can be seen blazing a trail in the metro Detroit area and beyond as they have won countless blues competitions over the years—having even traveled as far as Santa Maria, Portugal to perform in front thousands at the Santa Maria Blues Festival. CCB has a well-blended set of classic covers and roller-coaster-like originals that keep you captivated and coming back for more. With their diverse mix of blues, funk, and soul, they are always well-equipped to bring the house down wherever they go. With heart-wrenching vocals, pulse-pounding rhythms, and electric energy that can be felt in the air, you don’t want to miss a chance to see The Chris Canas Band live and in the flesh!
