Two Canadian guitar giants come together to burn up the famed King Eddy stage on Friday, March 22, when blues veterans Tony D and David Gogo will share the stage for a double header of epic proportions!

With a career that spans over 40 years, Ottawa master guitarist Tony D is fluent in many styles, from blues to rock and jazz. By the time he was 17 years old he was making a living as a musician, and at the age of nineteen, played for a brief time with blues icon Buddy Guy. Years later he opened for the late great Stevie Ray Vaughan at Ottawa’s National Arts Centre.
The Tony D Band has released seven albums, and is currently in the studio recording his new album, due for release in spring of 2024. An in-demand studio musician, Tony can be heard on numerous projects including those with Canadian blues legend Dutch Mason, neo-flamenco guitarist James Cohen, and roots & blues singer-songwriter and guitarist Suzie Vinnick.
Tony D is a founding member and guitarist for the iconic Canadian blues band, MonkeyJunk, who’ve released five albums on the Stony Plain Records label, toured extensively in Canada, the USA & Europe. The group has received three Juno nominations and two wins for Blues Album of the Year (2012 & 2018), 25 Maple Blues Awards (collectively) including Guitarist of the Year (2010) and a Blues Music Award.
