Mason's first band was called The Wreckers and soon stepped out front in Dutch Mason And The Esquires. By the age of 19 he hit the road doing dance hall performances around the Maritimes. As time went on he shifted from rock and roll to the Blues having been inspired by BB King's "Sweet Little Angel". He was thirty years old when he recorded his first album, with the Dutch Mason Trio, entitled "At The Candlelight" which was released in 1968. The album was actually recorded at Dartmouth High School

Later, with a newly formed Dutch Mason Band, the group took up residency as the house band at the Wyse Owl Tavern in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. They played constantly from 1973 into 1974 for a 13 month run and were then offered gigs in Toronto where they decided to relocate. The band returned home in 1978. Two albums followed on Attic Records before Mason was stricken with arthritis and diabetes complications that prevented him from recording for ten years. Mason was appointed the title "Prime Minister Of The Blues" at a BB King concert in Toronto by King himself.
