Lazy Mike is a seasoned performer & respected artist, his musical experience is diverse: festivals, dances, opening for renowned Blues Artists, house concerts, fairs, clubs & pubs. 


As the times have been changing evolution was inevidable & with that change

 "Lazy Mike Mallon Music" was born. 


Lazy Mike Mallon continues to be one of the hardest working Blues Musicians on Vancouver Island. Whether it be with his son and right hand man, Carson “Slim” Mallon on Guitar as the Blues duo “Lazy & Slim”, or with his band, the “Lazy Mike Mallon Band”, fans know that “These guys always bring their "A" game to the shows they play and have had the crowds jumpin' every time… 

One of the highlights of the "Powell River Blues Festival!”   


 

In the last ten years Lazy Mike has had the pleasure of playing at many festivals, fairs, clubs & pubs all over including: "Summer Street Dance" Hedley BC, the Sky High Blues Festival" & "AIM Biker Boogie Bash" Rock Creek BC, numerous times @ "Summertime Blues", "Marine Fest”, "Blues in the Park" & "Harbour City Blues" Nanaimo BC, "Vancouver Island Blues Bash" Victoria BC, "Junction Jam" Whitehorse YT, & "Port Alberni Toy Run" Port Alberni BC,"Blues on Whyte" Edmonton AB,

Once again "Lazy & Slim" have the very distinct honor and pleasure of opening for 
"Big Dave McLean" 
@ Oak Bay Recreation Centre Upstairs Lounge 
1975 Bee Street in Oak Bay Friday January 26 2018

~A presentation of Beacon Ridge Productions

We are proud to welcome back this Juno Award Winning Canadian blues legend! Last year's show sold out so best to get your tickets early!

Big Dave McLean is often viewed as an unsung hero of Canadian blues and an inspiration to younger generations of musicians such as Colin James and Wide Mouth Mason. Ever since getting his start with an impromptu guitar lesson from John Hammond at the 1969 Mariposa Folk Festival, this Yorkton-born, Winnipeg-based artist has been devoted to his craft, touring relentlessly through Canada’s blues bars, folk clubs and folk and blues festivals, even when it meant supplementing his income in the early days with all manner of side jobs.

Along the way, there have been career highs: opening for his idol, Muddy Waters; earning two Western Canadian Music Awards, a Prairie Music Award, a Whisky Award and countless Maple Blues honours – including the Blues with Feeling (Lifetime Achievement) Award; sharing a Juno for his contribution to CBC’s Saturday Night Blues Vol. 1 album; and, most recently, garnering his third career Juno nod for his last album, “Faded but not Gone”.

Billboard’s Larry LeBlanc once wrote that Dave “has done more to shape western Canada's blues scene than perhaps any other artist.” A gifted musician and consumate entertainer, this is a show you do not want to miss!

Opening the show will be the father/son team of Lazy & Slim, who have been a mainstay in the Vancouver Island Blues scene for the past 10 years.

          "Workin' Man" Radio Airplay         

October 2016

 We are very happy with the radio airplay we are receiving all over Canada, and of course on the Island. Here is a quote from Jim Martens of the "Blues in the Morning" show on CFUV Fm 101.9 in Victoria about our NEW Cd "Workin' Man"! Thank you Jim!

"... its fun to play good music. I am quite taken with the quality of the production on your cd which makes the layering sound very good. I use a tube amp at home and when I played it there it was extremely warm in the low end but the guitar and harp sounded very crisp and rich. Production doesn't often stand out that much on blues records. It isn't that lots of records are not well produced, its more the case that the production on yours really stands out.

I know that Smokers Cough on Sundays also plays your music.

Stay dry this weekend.
