Lethbridge, AB– Average Joe’s Sports Bar is pleased to announce that Doucette will be performing live at the bar on February 21, 2014.

Born in Montreal in 1952, Jerry Doucette was exposed to music literally from the day he was brought home from the hospital, as his father and uncle had a band, which did the local bars and coffee houses. His family moved to Hamilton when he was four and by the age of six, owned his first guitar. Incredibly, he was in his first band, The Reefers, at age 11. Though he probably didn’t know what a ‘reefer’ was, he did know pop music. He packed his bags and moved to Toronto five years later, where he was already making a living as a musician, working in several local groups over the course of the next few years.

He moved to Vancouver in ’72 where he starred in more local groups over the next couple of years, including The Seeds Of Time, featuring Lyndsey Mitchell, and The Rocket Norton Band. Norton and Mitchell would coincidentally wind up working together in Prism a few years later. Tired of the bar scene, Doucette became a recluse in his basement, writing material with John Hadfield, who would also serve as his manager. After releasing a demo to Mushroom Records in ’76, he was quickly asked to write more material and was subsequently signed to a deal.

MAMA LET HIM PLAY was released in November of ’77, with fellow guitarist Brent Shindell, drummer Duris Maxwell, Don Cummings on bass and Robbie King on keyboards. The record went platinum practically overnight, riding the success of the title-track, “Down The Road” and “All I Wanna Do”. Opening for the likes of Bob Welch and Meatloaf, Doucette quickly made a name for himself south of the border, touring The United States for most of 1978.

Jerry Doucette is perhaps one of Canada’s most gifted and influential, yet under-rated performers. Still all in all, he proved with PRICE OF AN EDUCATION he was back. And proves it again each time he hits the stage that he hasn’t lost his edge, delivering clean melodies and slick pop each time out.

Tickets are on sale at Average Joe’s Sports Bar for $15.00 or online at www.thejoe.ca. The fun will begin at 9:00P.M.
