Welcome to the home page of Gordzilla’s Blues web site. This web site was established to pay homage to the independence philosophy of the blues. It is not officially affiliated with or in competition with any blues organization. It is operated by individual(s) who love blues and respect its independent values. One must learn to appreciate the value of independence in the blues to understand the music, promote it and keep it alive.

Blues is an independent music form allowing musicians a powerful means of self expression and freedom. Blues is perhaps the most misunderstood and misjudged music in American history. Since its foundation, there has not been any music influencing life as Blues. It is essential to understand the roots of the Blues and its bond to nearly every form of modern music. Quite simply, ALL modern music placing the individual above the group is a direct descendant of the Blues: jazz, rock, doo wop, funk, rap, etc.

The following is a statement by the Gem Theater in regard to the cancellation of next Saturday's show at The Gem:

Due to the recent COVID-19 cases increasing in Michigan, and with the health and safety of our patrons, musicians and employees at the forefront of our minds, we, at The Gem Theater, have
decided to postpone the Chris Canas Band performance, scheduled for Saturday, March 21.  

A new, tentative date has been scheduled for Friday, Sept. 18.  

Our patrons that have already purchased tickets will be contacted via email to determine receiving refunds or applying your tickets to the rescheduled date.
