Brent Tombari and the Sault Blues Speakers

Some of you may already know this about me from chatting on the phone or via email: when it comes to music, I love the blues.  And when I choose blues speakers, I choose Axiom 🙂  Recently I had the opportunity to offer a pair of Algonquin Outdoor Speakers to a member of the Sault Blues Society, an organization that I’m a member of.  I also sit on the steering committee.

It’s a great club.  If you live near Sault Ste. Marie or are planning a visit our way this summer, mark your calendars. Our First Annual Blues Festival is June 8 & 9.

The Sault Blues Society is an incorporated not for profit organization that has been established for two years.  The objects of our organization are:

  • to organize a Blues festival,
  • to create additional performance opportunities for local musicians
  • to provide a venue to have listeners and musicians of the Blues to share their knowledge and experience
  • to educate the people of Ontario about the diversity of the Blues,
  • to partner with other organizations and associations to support and further common goals

We will be holding our First Annual Blues Festival at the Algoma Water Tower Inn on June 8 & 9, as well as one other fundraising event on May 5. The Algoma’s Water Tower Inn has been one of the Sault Blues Society corporate sponsors since our inception.

We currently have 98 members, I have been a member for 2 years and joined the steering committee the last year.

You can learn more about us here:

Our next fundraiser we will have Al Wood and the Woodsmen an Ottawa Based Blues Group performing at the WaterTower.

Our first annual event will be a 2 day venture, June 8th & 9th, at the WaterTower Inn, featuring Steve Strongman, a gifted blues guitarist out of Hamilton and The David Rotundo Band , a vocalist/harmonica player based out of Toronto.

Any other blues fans out there?  Post your current favourite artists below!


Brent Tombari, Audio Expert, has been in the Audio business “since the change from the gramophone to a record player was imminent – 39 glorious and fulfilling years.” Brent played in a rock band, touring for 8 years, before settling down and becoming an audio retailer. In 1984 he started selling Axiom in his shops, and came on board with Axiom full-time after selling his stores in 2000.

    Being also a member of the Sault Blues Society, I also enjoy the sacred music called the Blues. Last summer I installed Axiom Algonquin Outdoor Speakers – great sound! Thanks, Brent!

    Good luck with the festival Brent. I’ve been attending our local blues festival with my kids since I found out about it 7 years ago. Last year my daughter was completely blown away by Jonny Winter and he’s now on her play list. Gotta love it when the old man’s music is cool. 🙂

    Hi Fred,

    Good for you man – it is so good when you can have the youngsters appreciate the musicianship of artists’ like Johnny Winter – make sure you mention that his white hair was there from birth.
