Downchild Blues Band 2007 Live At The Palais Royale

The Downchild Blues Band is a Canadian blues band, described by one reviewer as "the premier blues band in Canada". The band was formed in Toronto in 1969 and still performs today. The band's international fame is partially due to three of its songs, the originals I've Got Everything I Need (Almost) and Shot Gun Blues, and its adaptation of Flip Flop and Fly, all from its 1973 album, Straight Up, being featured on the first Blues Brothers album, Briefcase Full of Blues (1978). The band's musicial style is described as being "a spirited, if fundamental, brand of jump-band and Chicago-style blues.

Almost 40 years since there formation, Downchild are still at the top of their game, and showing no signs of slowing down. This blues institution has inspired and excited blues fans and peers alike with their upbeat and jumpy delivery. Founded by brothers Donnie and Hock Walsh, Downchild were the inspiration for actor Dan Ackroyd to create the Blues Brothers.
