On Friday, Feb. 10, Blenders is proud to be hosting the talented Dojo Workhorse.

The band of six, comprising of members Dan Vacon, Rob Mcintyre, Brent Gough, Matty D, Brock Geiger, and Elliot Rosewater, blend together in a collection of rock and blues and create something compelling and relatable. 
While lead singer Vacon may be best known for penning the anthemic rock songs that have defined Calgary’s beloved The Dudes, the man’s softer side is laid bare in Dojo Workhorse, a group one shouldn’t mistake for some half-baked side project. Vacon moves from barroom boozy to rock ’n’ bluesy with Dojo Workhorse, taking the opportunity to bring some pleading honesty and gentle humour to his heartfelt odes to love, loss and the eternal hope of getting it right this time.
Channelling Sam Cooke as much as Rivers Cuomo, Vacon cuts through the ironic gloss attributed to his generation and shows that beneath all those gimmicky T-shirts lies love-confused, tumultuous, passionate love. Dojo Workhorse harbours a voice that cuts deep while wailing of triumph and tragedy in all matters of the heart, arrangements that hide their complexity in hooks and harmonies, and lyrics torn from the journal we all once had— or wish we still did.
You will not want to miss Dojo Workhorse. Tickets are $35 and can be purchased at Pharmasave.
Doors will open at 7:30 p.m. and the music will begin at 8:30 p.m.
