The Blasters to perform in Canyon Lake

Formed in 1979 in Downey, California, The Blasters emerges as central figures in the eclectic LA punk/rock scene of the early 80s to their current status as internationally-renowned influences in their own right. The Blasters have spent their lives exploring and expressing the deep and diverse musical legacy best described by the title of their first album, “American Music.”

The Blasters toured almost continuously for much of their heyday. A performance by today’s Blasters, featuring vocalist-guitarist Phil Alvin, drummer Bill Bateman, bassist John Bazz, and guitarist Keith Wyatt, reflects influences that range from George Jones and Carl Perkins to Howlin’ Wolf, James Brown, and Bo Diddley. Their shows have been described as “a cross between Creedence and the Clash” with a display of passion and energy only deepened by decades of experience. 

Opening act Andrew Cole is a Canadian-born musician and philanthropist. He is recognized for his anti-abuse awareness multimedia project entitled “#NoJoke.” His anti-bullying documentary features celebrities and musicians, including Jeff Goldblum, Ozzy Osbourne, Slash, Meatloaf, Carrot Top, and Sharon Osbourne.

Cole has performed as an opening act for a number of well-known artists, including Elton John, John Fogerty, and Tom Jones. He is currently in the studio and on tour with Black Eyed Peas guitarist George Pajon, Jr. completing his long-awaited second full-length album. His new song, “Balloons,” features drummer Travis Barker of Blink 182 and is set for release later this year.

This concert is part of the Canyon Lake POA’s “Concerts at the Lodge” series, produced by Doug Schultz, and is the final concert of the 2022 season.
