Downchild Blues Band

How did Downchild Blues Band get the band name - Sonny Boy Williamson IIThese guys from Toronto, Ontaria - in a review once described as Canada's premier blues band - have been up and running for a very long time.

Despite the fact that at the beginning of the 1980s their name was shortened to Downchild, practically everyone still uses the longer version.

Mister Downchild is the title of a song by Sonny Boy Williamson in which an experienced man gives a young guy useful advice:

'Listen downchild
Please take a fool's advice
Don't never let no one woman
Man, misuse you twice.'

Active: 1969-present, CAN
