Colin Dussault's Blues Project 

Friday, May 9. Brothers Lounge, 11609 Detroit Ave., 216-226-2767.


If Colin Dussault isn't the busiest bluesman in town, he may well be the toughest. The harmonica hammerer continues performing while healing from a torn artery, risking life and limb to meet your entertainment needs. Colin Dussault's Blues Project celebrates its 19th birthday this weekend, with its first show at the recently reopened Brothers Lounge, the band's 1990s West Side home, where the party used to go on well after the club closed. "If a band member happened to have his wife and/or several girlfriends in the club at the same time, they would dive out that door on break and go to another bar, or hide out until break was over," recalls Dussault. "This was also the genesis of our two-hour sets. With that many women in the room who were not aware of each other, it was best to stay onstage. We are returning to the scene of the crimes!" Of course, that was a long time ago, and now they're all cleaned up and gentlemanly.
