For over 30 years Dwayne LaForme has been living, breathing, sleeping and playing the blues. His heart and passion are all about the blues. For the last 20-plus years, LaForme has also headed up his own band, the highly sought after “Dwayne LaForme’s Boogie Blues.”
Growing up between Mississauga of the Credit First Nation and Six Nations of the Grand River meant LaForme’s deep musical roots came from both sides of his family.
LaForme has had the pleasure of playing with some of Canada’s finest blues musicians. Most notably, “The Prime Minister of Blues”, Dutch Mason and members of The Downchild Blues Band. He is a 3-time competitor at the International Blues Challenge. Two of which he represented the Grand River Blues Society in Memphis, TN as part of the Joel Johnson Band.
In 2018 LaForme was the first Indigenous Canadian to join the house band for the Native American Music Awards (NAMA), held in Niagara Falls, New York, as lead guitarist and both lead and back-up vocals.
Joining LaForme will be his bass guru Al Richardson. Richardson is a master of fretted, fretless and stand-up bass playing. Richardson was also a member of The Homewreckers with the legendary Mel Brown.
Please join us for a rare duo and Dwayne LaForme’s style of Boogie Blues.
