Live Music In vancouverSandy Bone & Double D Jam at the Princeton Pub

Hosted by Sandy Bone & Double D (Dave Dykhuizen), and sometimes, Sinéad X Sanders.

SandyBone is a well-established Canadian musician and an accomplished bandleader who sings, plays guitar, drums and harmonica.

His primary focus in recent years has been as frontman in Sandy Bone & The BreakDown, a dynamic roots oriented band who put a refreshing spin in the fabric of their blues, much of which is original composition, weaving threads of R & B, swing, country, rock-a-billy, folk and rock & roll into heartfelt tales of life & death, women & whisky, home fires & travel, love & heartbreak and, of course, trains!

The list of musicians he has performed and/or recorded with is substantial:
Pinetop Perkins, Clarence “Big” Miller, Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne, Russell Jackson, The Twisters, Big Time Sara, Lou Pride, Sue Foley, Mitch Kashmar, Jumpin’ Johnny Sansone, Big Jack Johnson, Sonny Rhodes, Tim Williams, Diana Braithwaite, Chris Whitely, Steve Marriner, Wes Mackey, Bill Johnson, Steve Kozak, Back Alley John, Drew Nelson, Harpdog Brown, Johnny Ferreira, Shuggy Otis, Long John Baldry and Amos Garrett. He has also shared the stage with Kim Wilson, Linton Garner, Sonny Rhodes, Jeff Healey, Matt Minglewood, Dutch Mason, Suzie Vinnick, Jorda Cook, Donny Walsh, Big Dave McLean, Eddie Shaw, Sneezy Waters, Tom Lavin and many, many more.
