It starts slow; it ends in sweat. A show that takes the listener through all states of body and mind. Calm and captivating country-folk ballads progressively give way to energetic, pop-rock tunes, steadily escalating into a sweaty climax, with the amps turned up to eleven. And of course, the bar is where it really ends. Every Gab Bouchard gig offers a gentle beginning that transitions into a fiery frenzy. It’s an intimate and raw encounter marked by unrestrained rock energy, a breath of air to soothe a broken heart. With his bleached bowl haircut, iconic moustache, and guitar, Gab Bouchard is backed by four seasoned musicians on stage. It starts slow; it ends in sweat.
