Deacon George Band

The Deacon George Band consists of Deacon George on vocals, guitars, harmonica; Phil Peters on Bass; and Bobbyray on Drums. The band is rooted in the deep blues and spirituals that go back to the music of Charley Patton and Blind Willie Johnson and on up to the likes of Muddy Waters, Howling Wolf and Pops Staples.

The Deacon George Band performs in and around the Montreal area, including Blues meccas such as House of Jazz, Lion d'Or, Smoke Meat Pete's, Bistro à Jojo, and the Mad Monk Café. Deacon George is actually a song and worship leader in a Montreal church and he brings that kind of intensity to the blues.
