Mike Gaudreau Bio
Born in 1965 in Newport, Vermont into a musical family with an English mother and a French Canadian father, Mike picked up the guitar at age 14 and hasn’t stopped playing since. In the early 90’s Mike formed The Boppin Blues Band. Since their first CD, he has produced 22 albums and over 150 songs for film and television. We are pleased to have this great band from the Eastern townships of Quebec make a rare Ontario appearance at Orangeville Blues & Jazz Festival!
