“We were fully engaged with Victor's grounded presence and storytelling, and how he channels stories and truths into his bluesy rootsy music. A solid voice and well-honed blues-rock-roots guitar. Victor's stage presence is deeply rooted and his stories and lyrics brought me to thinking more deeply about my own life and how all of our paths weave together on the journey.”
Canadian singer songwriter Victor Nesrallah will be making his first Vancouver Island concert tour debut as part of his "Just Play'n Good" Summer Tour 2018. With shows in Port Alberni, Duncan and Victoria, the legendary Ottawa musician will be performing his special blend of "Roots World Folk and Blues " to music lovers on the island. His music and song stylings run the gamut from "foot stomping blues to storytelling songs accompanied by percussive rhythms, finger style playing and bottleneck slide. Comparisons range from Keb Mo to Bruce Coburn to Harry Manx. His three-stop tour kicks off at Char's Landing Sunday July 22nd 7:00pm. Victor's shows have been described as both "Powerful" and "Engaging". Don't miss it.
“We recently had Victor Nesrallah perform at our live music venue in Parksville BC. Victor gave a warm and captivating performance that was well received by the audience. His songs often tell a story, and the audience was transported to other locations in the world as Victor explained the story behind his songs. What made the night so unique was the musical nod to his middle eastern background, which gave a colourful and exotic touch to his songs. We anxiously await his return to The west coast! ”
"While Nesrallah’s laid-back style adapts easily to everything from folk to world music and more, Based in Blues may be the most direct and honest record he’s released to date. For fans of rootsy acoustic blues, Based in Blues is just what the doctor ordered."
