Rhythm Boys Roll Into Victoria

With flashes of flair and fancy footwork, and a blatant disregard for predictable stage presence, Prince Edward Island’s Gordie MacKeeman and His Rhythm Boys deliver an ultimate concert experience filled with high-energy electrifying entertainment.

With a slight bend of his knee, Gordie launches into a song. Guided by the sharp cuts of his fiddle, his famous crazy legs shake and twist with a laughing regard for physics. The whole time The Rhythm Boys deliver surefooted roots instrumentation to accompany the spectacle.

Gordie and the band are at the top of today’s vibrant old-time musical revival and are a mighty fine example of what an unending revival it is.

“This band is a real breath of fresh air and fun. Given the generic ‘roots’ label, there are heavy influences of bluegrass, western swing, Celtic and even Scottish country dance music in here. It all adds up to a mighty fine package.” – Maverick Magazine, UK.

The Rhythm Boys are at the Victoria Playhouse on August 29.
