Here’s what Mike Devlin from the Times Colonist said about Diana Braithwaite & Chris Whiteley’s previous show March 11th 2022:
Critic’s Pick List! “The duo of singer Diana Braithwaite and multi-instrumentalist Chris Whiteley is a two-pronged threat, with both veterans bringing something special to the table. With multiple Juno Award nominations and Maple Blues Award wins as a unit, they are an extremely esteemed duo in the blues genre…band that includes Jack Lavin on bass, Ross Hall on drums, and Jan Randall on piano, expect great things to happen. This will be a party with a capital P.”
