Winners of International Blues Challenge ready to rock Osoyoos stage

Ottawa-based HOROJO Trio comes to the Osoyoos’ Art Council on Oct. 19

After making stops across the country in 2022, including one in Penticton, HOROJO Trio is coming to Osoyoos later this month in support of their critically-acclaimed debut album.

The Osoyoos Arts Council hosts the Ottawa-based group on Oct. 19, as part of its 2022-2023 concert series.

HOROJO Trio — led by drummer Jamie Holmes, singer Jeff Rogers and guitarist JW Jones — was already a known commodity in the world of soul-rocking rhythm and blues before the release of April 2022’s Set the Record.

It was in July 2020 when the Canadian rockers put themselves on the map, capturing the annual International Blues Challenge title in Memphis, Tenn. Since then, the trio has received multiple JUNO and Maple Blues Awards nominations.

The band outdueled 200 other groups to earn the honours in Tennessee.

“We kept going after Memphis, made this debut record, signed to Stoney Plain Records and now here we are…promoting it,” Jones told the Western News in April.

The Oct. 19 show will mark the band’s return to the Okanagan, months after the band’s album launch party at Penticton’s Dream Cafe in April.

As part of its fall tour, HOROJO Trio will also make stops in Kelowna, Chilliwack, White Rock, Nanaimo and Victoria before appearing at venues across Alberta, California, Texas and Nebraska.

Tickets for the show in Osoyoos are listed for $25 and available at the arts council “hub” on 8716 Main Street or by contacting krush.earl@yahoo.com to arrange a purchase.
