    Two Shows: 7pm & 9pm Toronto-based blues guitarist, singer and songwriter Chris Antonik arrived onto the National and International blues scene with his self-titled debut album which received widespread critical acclaim, placed in the Roots Music Report Top 100 charts for over a year, and garnered Antonik a nomination for Best New Artist of the Year at Canada’s national Maple Blues Awards. In 2010, in its year-end review, British Columbia’s Blues Underground Network deemed Chris ‘The Future of the Blues.’ After extensive touring and major blues festival appearances in Canada in 2011 and 2012, Chris returned with his highly anticipated and critically-acclaimed follow-up Better For You in March 2013. With Antonik on the majority of lead vocals, guest vocalists on Better For You include: two-time Grammy award-winner Mike Mattison (The Derek Trucks Band, The Tedeschi-Trucks Band) and American Blues Music award-nominee Shakura S’Aida. Other guest artists include blues Juno-winners Steve Marriner (MonkeyJunk) and Julian Fauth, as well as Canadian music veterans Suzie Vinnick and Richard Underhill. Since its release, Better For You has solidified Chris’ reputation as one of Canada's hottest young blues artists: the album spent three weeks at #1 on DAWG 101.9 FM's weekly album chart (Canada’s only all blues-rock FM station), has continued charting on the Roots Music Report, and has attained significant airplay in Canada, the US and Europe, including regular play on Sirius XM (B.B. King's Bluesville), the BBC, Jazz FM, CBC, Galaxie, and more.

    'Roll with It' really hits the spot. Great groove right off the top pulls me in easy. Great vocals with a good range, emphasis and tone. Fine, very fine lead guitar to compliment your singing really shines; most inspiring.Very punchy tune- a fine arrangement. The rhythm guitar gives a kool backup, to your great slide lead guitar artistry. EXCELLENT!
