The Matinee

Mulligan Stew Dec 9th 2023- Remembering Shane, Rick Danko & Otis Redding. Matt Layzell from The Matinee Guests.


It’s mushroom season in the forests and fields of BC’s West Coast. It’s called foraging.

Small groups of Shroomheads are roaming all over the place. The payoff is their inclusion in amazing seasonal dishes.

This week I did the studio version of foraging.

Dug deep and reconnected with The Wailin’ Jenny’s, Junior Wells, Stevie Ray playing Guitar Shorty’s Thangs I used to do live at Carnegie Hall.

Jackson Browne, Huey Lewis and Tower of Power – together. Dr. John & BB King, The Wallflowers,

The Stones. And yes, we remember three  icons

We remember  Shane MacGowan. Playing The Pogues and Joe Strummer live in London Dirty Old Town

And honouring Otis Redding,  who died Dec 10, 1967, along with most of his band in a small plane crash while on tour. Booker T Jones returns to The Stew to tell the tale of how they felt at Stax Records and how he and Steve Cropper got Dock of the Bay finished and released., FYI Booker T is bringing his big Stax Revue to the Edmonton Blues Fest Aug 16

Tickets and the full line up released on Friday, Dec 8

Rick Danko  (The Band) died in his sleep Dec 10 1999. Playing Rick’s heartbreaking vocals on It makes no difference from The Last Waltz.

New music from Celeigh Cardinal, Trans Canada Highwaymen, Fall Out Boy, Amos Lee, Corb Lund, CB Green, Doobies, Mick Fleetwood – Song for Lahaina,

Start with the wild voice of Kelley Hunt.

Our guest is Matt Layzell from The Matinee. They have released a new album Change of Scene

They’ve been friends making music for 15 years. This feels like the album that really pays off on  all the hard work.

Produced by Steve Dawson who brought  into the studio Allison Russell and The McCrary Sisters.

The complete interview can be heard on the Mulligan Stew podcast and the Terry David Mulligan youtube channel

Next week we’ll have their new Christmas single –  Last Christmas

Mulligan Stew February 25th 2017- The Matinee & David Gogo Interviews


Two very special guests to Saturday’s Stew..
The Matinee return to Mulligan Stew with an edited version of their one hour special on the Roundhouse Radio Lobby Stage on Live from Railtown.
We last hosted them when they released We Swore we’d see the Sunrise, their debut LP. Produced by Steve Berlin from Los Lobos.
Since then they’ve been nominated for a Juno, were mistaken for The Sheepdogs and released an EP in 2015 called Broken Arrows and crossed Canada on tour SIX times.
Those tours took their toll..and the boys went their separate ways to recover and renew.
Now comes Dancing on your Grave with The Matts – Layzell and Rose plus original members Peter Lemon and Geoff Petrie.
(along with Georges Couling on keys and Marcus Abramzik on Bass)
Songs include the Title track, Blood Alley, Long Gone and Anna Lee.
The Matinee are a great live band..and they shine in these 30 minutes..artists and storytellers.

When I found Dave GoGo, wearing his Montreal Canadians PJ’s and Alex Chilton t shirt,  He  was high on GoGo Mountain south of Nanaimo.
Voted the best blues guitarist in the Land by his peers at the Canadian Blues Awards..he was prepping for some quick dates in Alberta and BC.

2 shows March 1 in Calgary..the first is in the  Church of the Redeemer  at Noon (Boggles the mind) ..and the National Music Centre at night.
Thursday finds him at the Ramada in Calgary
Then Edmonton Friday/Saturday at  The Blue Chair.
March 18th Dave’s at The Port Theatre in Nanaimo celebrating his birthday with guests, including Shaun Verreault, Shawn Hall (Harp and Axe) and David Vest.

Check out the best playlist anywhere.
The Wood Brothers open..Sam and Dave / Lightning Hopkins closes.
And in between Los Lobos, The Neville Bros Live at Tipitina’s, The new Harp and Axe, Frazey Ford, Sting,  Colin James & 54-40
