With a career that began humbly at the University of Victoria's Sub Pub, this band led the live music, independent recording and producing scene in Victoria BC in the 80s. They become RCA Recording Artists, received rave reviews of live performances along the way and shared stages with Muddy Waters, Joe Cocker, James Cotton, Koko Taylor and Paul Butterfield to name a few, leaving an indelible legacy of 21 recorded tracks that still stand the test of time.

Uncle Wiggly's Hot Shoes Blues Band released their latest CD, Still Burnin it Up and recently came off a successful Western Tour to Alberta and BC. They were a hit at Island Folkfest and blew folks away at the Vancouver Island Blues Bash on the Labour Day weekend. They won the right to represent BC during the White Rock Blues Challenge in July 2014, then traveled to Memphis in January of 2015 to participate in the International Blues Challenge.
