Vancouver band Intellifunk, led by Haida musician Jamie Collison, has made it to the final round in the Aboriginal People’s Choice Music Awards.
Intellifunk was nominated in the “Best Blues CD” category and is up against four other bands, including legendary artist Billy Joe Green.
“We’re in pretty good company, I couldn’t believe we made it that far,” Mr. Collison said.
Intellifunk is actually more jazz and funk than blues, he said, but the music awards don’t have a category for jazz.
