Through their musical legacy, Downchild has had a huge impact on Canadian and American Culture. This impact however has been overlooked and under appreciated in Canadian pop culture history. Flip Flop and Fly will right that wrong! In the late 60's Donnie and his brother Hock imported blues music from the United States into Canada and introduced Canadians to this passionate and infectious style of music. Forty years, 19 albums, countless live performances and awards later, Downchild remains the top live blues band in Canada selling out concerts throughout the country. And they influenced a whole new generation of young musicians including Jeff Healey, Colin James,and more who continue the blues tradition in Canada. And through Donnie's friendship with Dan Aykroyd, the band impacted American culture by being the inspiration for Aykroyd's Blues Brothers phenomenon. Written by Joel Goldberg See less
