Casino New Brunswick presents renowned rock guitarist, David Wilcox
(Moncton, NB) – Songwriter, singer and renowned Canadian rock guitarist, David Wilcox is set to perform at Casino New Brunswick’s Event Centre in Moncton on the first day of summer, Friday, June 21 at 8 p.m.
Wilcox first made his name as a wild, live performer and then as a recording artist whose work from Out Of The Woods (1980) to his latest release; Boy In The Boat (2007) stands the test of time.
After more than twenty years in the business - including extensive touring, five gold & platinum albums and numerous awards - it's no stretch to say that Wilcox deserves icon status.
Wilcox led his first big-time band, David Wilcox and the Teddy Bears, in the mid '70s, hitting local stages as a flashy character with an oversized waxed moustache, a baggy suit and a flower in his lapel. It was at that time he began performing original material. Over the years he's written an extremely broad variety of songs, including "Old Cats" and "Don't Let The Devil Take The Beat From The Lord".
In the early '80s, Wilcox shed the moustache and suit, truly hitting his stride. Wherever he played he left a trail of club and concertgoers who'd danced, drank, clapped, stomped and shouted their way to a great time. With consistent radio play for his songs, audiences were calling out for "Hot, Hot, Papa", "Riverboat Fantasy" and other classic favorites.
