They don't make them as real as David Vest anymore. The son of an Alabama sharecropper, the longtime Victoria BC resident is still going strong 50 years after he first stepped on stage with the likes of Big Joe Turner. Long revered as one of the great boogie-woogie piano players, Vest is a six-time winner of Canada's national Maple Blues Award for Piano Player of the Year. (more)
