STEVENSVILLE - 

Safari Niagara wants you to feel the blues next week when Juno Award winners come to the Stevensville zoo.

Colin James, Steve Strongman and David Gogo will be lighting up the amphitheatre stage.

James, a six-time Juno award winner, has topped the charts as a pop vocalist, recorded an acclaimed blues album and led the swing revival with his Little Big Band.

Strongman has a Juno award for Blues Album of the Year and has played at festivals like the Barrie Jazz and Blues Festival and Mont Tremblant International Blues Festival.

Gogo has four Juno nominations under his belt and a Western Canadian Music Award for Blues Recording of the Year. He's also been named Maple Blues Guitarist of the Year.

Tickets are still available by calling 1-866-943-8849 or by visiting www.safariniagara.com.

The summer concert series concludes with rockers The Sheepdogs and 54-40 on Aug. 9 and Canadian legends Great Big Sea on Aug. 24.
