  • CAN YOU SING? Do people COMPLIMENT YOU on your singing? Do you love melodic pop and the harmonies of The Byrds, Moby Grape, Kinks, Buffalo Springfield, Neil Young, Flying Burrito Brothers, Jayhawks etc? Do you like to listen to the lyrics of a song?
    We are two easy going retired guys: a singer and a bassist who sings harmony. We have a collection of songs in mind that are off the beaten path. No more Proud Mary, Hotel California or Stairwell to Hell. We are open to fresh interpretations and don’t think mimicry is the only way to cover a song.
    We are looking for a couple of singer-guitarists (male or female) who can sing both lead or harmony. No assholes or prima donnas, please. That means you, Larry and Mike. We may add lead guitar and drums once solid vocals are established.
    We want to rehearse once a week and are not restricted to Sundays. Unless someone offers an PA equipped practice space, we will rent a rehearsal studio and costs will be shared equally.
    This project Is for fun. It may or may not lead to gigs: that’s dependent on who is involved. Our project Is a labour of love and will require being prepared and some dedication too.”

  • Are you looking to unleash your voice as lead singer of a rock band? If you’ve got a killer rock voice and want to front a great band… If you miss singing for a band and want to get back into it… If your goal is to have fun playing some local gigs… If you want to help shape a band’s set list and future direction… Then this opportunity is for YOU!
    We’re a guitarist, bassist and drummer with solid band experience. Collectively, we’ve played clubs and festivals of all sizes, recorded and released original music, enjoyed national airplay (radio and MuchMusic), and opened for a number of notable '90s rock artists including Big Wreck and IME's Edwin.
    If you’d like to cover artists such as RHCP, Pearl Jam, Kings of Leon — and ultimately collaborate to write original music — then email a video or link showcasing your vocal skills. If we like your stuff we’ll contact you and set up a jam session. We’re fun-loving musicians in our 30s/40s looking to make a few bucks playing some cool tunes. If you’re into drugs and hard partying then this isn’t the right fit for you. Email:

  • KICK OUT THE JAMS !! GOOD2GO + THE MERE HUMANS rock Irene's Pub Click Here -- ( 885 Bank St in the Glebe ) on Friday, April 27th. Doors at 9:30 - $10 GOOD2GO - With influences ranging from The Rolling Stones to The Clash and The Ramones , GOOD2GO kicks out the jams at full throttle and always has a blast doing so! Fronted by the dynamic Miss Maureen on vocals, the band whips up a rock ’n’ roll juggernaut that is both mischievous and captivating. GOOD2GO is rounded out by Ottawa music scene veterans Glen Russell (guitar), Reg Allen (bass) and Gilles Mantha (drums) . The MERE HUMANS sound is all about rock n roll!!! They are influenced by the bombast and high energy of the MC5 and Radio Birdman as much as the greasy groove of southern soul. Add to that the pop sensibilites of the 60's British Invasion and the freak out psychedelic sounds that emanated from the garages of 60's America with a touch of raunchy blues then you have it.

  • Ben & Anita in concert at La Grange de la Gatineau on March 17th at 8pm Celebrate St. Patrick's day in fine Celtic style! Ben Miller and Anita MacDonald join together, blending the rich traditional sound of the Cape Breton fiddle, with the fiery edge of the Scottish Border pipes. Combining their creative vision with influences from Old and New World Gaelic traditions, they create a powerful sound, heralded as "one of the most important folk acts on the Island [Cape Breton] today." (Wendy Bergfeldt-Munro, Producer/Host CBC).
    Tempering the sharp edge of the pipes and fiddle, Ben and Anita are joined by friends from the Maritimes and beyond. Supported by Zakk Cormier guitarist, and specialist of Acadian foot percussion, they create a sound that has captivated audiences across North America and further afield.
    A cocktail of tradition, distilled like a pure drop of the Canadian Maritimes, their unique blend of driving dance music transcends boundaries - equally at home at a kitchen ceilidh or on a late night festival stage. "... Fiery, fresh, yet totally traditional." (Alex Monaghan, Piping Today Magazine).

  • Splitting a jam space at Capital Rehearsal Studios Looking for a band or artist who would like to split a jam room at CRS in Ottawa. My band currently has every Monday evening from 5:30pm - 8:30. Lately, we haven't been able to make it so we are looking to share the room and rent with someone. We do not have a locked room so whatever room is available is what we get but we have never been turned away due to lack of rooms. All rooms are fully stocked including drums so all you would need is cymbals and guitars. We pay $120 a month for 4 jams so we are looking to split it and have someone pay $60 for 2 jams. You would get 6 hours total over two jams which would work out to $10/hour

  • Veteran classic rock band seeks versatile, professional guitarist. This is one of those rare opportunities for an experienced and accomplished musician to join a well-established working band comprised of personable, laidback musicians who also happen to be top-end players. We’re looking for someone who can fill the role of sole electric guitar player and can adeptly handle a mix of 60s and 70s songs by artists such as the Doobie Brothers, AC/DC, the Beatles, and more. We’re also building one set of originals, which is a very important area of focus for us right now.
    We limit ourselves to—on average—about two shows per month (bars, weddings, parties and corporate events), have a large, enthusiastic following and enjoy a top-notch reputation among local bands, fans and venue managers. So as to not waste our time or yours, please only consider applying if you are able to demonstrate the highest level of proficiency on your chosen instrument. Backup vocal ability is an absolute must. Contact us by email at with some background on yourself and a YouTube link to a video of a live or studio performance. Thank you.

  • Hi, we are a father/son duo who have been gigging together regularly for over 8 years. Our repertoire spans 7 decades, and hundreds of songs.
    We are putting together a show band for a particular show that we hope to market in the eastern Ontario region. The music will have a common theme, but it will span all decades and all genres from old country, to 70s punk, to blues, to 80s pop and more.
    You need to be versatile and capable.
    We don't care if you are Conservatory trained, or simply play by ear. Just hit the right notes at the right times, with the right passion.
    Son plays lead and sings. Dad plays rhythm guitar and/or bass and sings.
    We need a drummer and a rhythm guitar player and/or bass player and/or keys player. Preference given to those who can sing lead and harmony. Also, females are encouraged because there is a selection of tunes by the ladies that we'd like to include.
    We have a date booked for our first show, a little over 3 months from now. This will be the test - if successful, we'd like to roll it out over the summer and fall, playing small town theatres and halls, festivals, fairs, etc all over eastern Ontario. This will be a weekends-only affair (as far as gigs are concerned) and it won't be as road-heavy as it may sound. One or two weekends per month would be ideal.
    This is NOT a bar band. This will be a show band.
    Get at us by email, outline your experience and expectations (we don't need a full resume, just a couple quick words). We look forward to hearing from you. Andrew and Aaron Ray 613-294-0704
