Vancouver musician Bocephus King has decided to celebrate his birthday here in Golden, with a concert at Jita’s Cafe on July 31.

Since releasing his debut album, “Joco Music,” in 1996, Bocephus King has consistently transcended categorization, skirting effortlessly between blues, alt country, traditional songwriting and modern aesthetics. He has built a reputation for not only memorable songwriting, but also for his legendary live performances.

It has been seven years since he unleashed his last album to the world, and now he is continuing his tradition of genre-defying music with the release of his latest and fifth album, “Willie Dixon God Damn!”

Told in a more contemporary, present voice, “Willie Dixon God Damn!” is the title of a new chapter in Bocephus King’s story and a continuation of his last album, the critically acclaimed “All Children Believe in Heaven,” which left off with tales of 1950’s Hollywood heartbreakers, the Beats and poor lost souls.

Joining Bocephus King on this latest tour will be compatriots Paul Towsend on drums, Wynston Minckler on upright bass and Robin Layne on percussion.
