CBC presents: Gary Comeau & the Voodoo Allstars

Performance at the Centennial Theatre

'I think about you all the time'
Gary Comeau & the Voodoo Allstars
Hot and Spicy Louisiana inspired Roots & Blues
Take the rhythm of the Maritime Acadian music, season well with Louisiana zydeco blues, add a twist of Highway 61 era Dylan, serve it up with great showmanship, and you’ve got a potent musical cocktail that will have your head spinning and your feet dancing!
- Island Folks Festival

Gary Comeau is a singer-songwriter and musician of unique diversity and talent. Playing a range of instruments including guitar, mandolin, fiddle and piano, he delivers originally crafted, high energy, New Orleans-style rockin' roots and blues.

Although Gary’s own roots are French-Acadian - he was born and raised in Nova Scotia - his soul seems to have taken a long and inspiring detour through Louisiana and the Mississippi Delta.  While Gary does not consider himself to be a Cajun or zydeco artist per se (“it’s just the vibe that runs through the tunes I write”) he’s probably the most southern-sounding player in town. Steve Newton of The Georgia Straight states, “Vancouver’s roots-music scene has immensely benefited from Comeau’s presence.”

Between 1997 - 2004 Gary released four CD’s. Comeau’s talents have also caught the attention of the film industry with songs like "Marianne", featured in The Paramount Film “Double Jeopardy” (1999) and "I Think About You All the Time” from the film “Wise Guys” (2003).

Gary Comeau & The Voodoo Allstars were asked to participate in The BC Fire Relief Benefit; a joint production of CBC television and radio. They were featured on Holger Peterson’s Saturday Night Blues; a CBC nation-wide blues show out of Edmonton, Alberta and are regulars on the West Coast Festival circuit where their live performances are, more often than not, the showcase highlight.
