  • Hello! I am looking for a guitar player to jam with in Dunrobin. I am retired and I am really enjoying the free time to play guitar and make music. Sunday afternoons at my place is a good time to get together, but I am flexible on that. My goal is to have fun and perhaps make some recordings and perform at a backyard BBQ or two, but the main goal is to have someone to play music with, enjoy ourselves and improve our skills. Although I have played guitar for many decades I would only classify myself as 'intermediate' but I have a good grasp of music theory. I have a home recording studio with good software and skills. I have started composing my own songs - a work in progress. I enjoy a lot of types of music Pearl Jam, The White Buffalo, Johnny Cash, Wilco & Billy Bragg, Whitehorse, Blue Rodeo, Cowboy Junkies, almost anything. If you are interested drop me an email and perhaps we can get together to discuss soon Ted

  • I'm the lead guitarist and my roommate is the lead singer and we're looking into starting a band. We don't have a jamming space, but we do have a car and can go to where a drummer wants to practice. We play Eric Clapton songs, Bon Jovi songs, Foreigners, and other classic rock songs. We are in our 20s and 30s, so we're looking for someone around our age. We are very dedicated to this and hoping you would bring the same dedication. Our goal is to perform in public.

  • I'm looking to start an acoustic duo/group. Looking for other musicians who play and sing. Entirely open to songs to cover, but ideas: (Blue Rodeo, Eagles, Chris Stapleton, America, Tragically Hip, Lumineers, Mumford and Sons)...along with some fast paced maritime music as well (great big sea, spirit of the west). I'm looking to find some good people who love to play and sing. The progression would be to get together, put together a list of a couple of open mics, then get into more serious gigging. This could be a duo/trio, or an all out acoustic band (something like Signal Hill). Would be great to have both male and female voices/players.
    Almost forgot...I play guitar/mandolin/rudimentary keyboards and sing.
    If this might be something of interest to you, fire me an email or call 613-266-5016 and we'll take it from there. I'm in Stittsville Cheers, and thanks for looking!

  • Into starting something in the way of old school death metal & blackened death metal? Or do you need a bass player or a guitar player for your band relating to these styles of metal???
    I play both guitar and bass and have done vocals as well but only for recording purposes so far and have been involved with either bands or projects since the 90’s onwards. So, in saying that, I do have experience with writing, being in the studio to record and with past live performances as well. Basically, I am looking to work with people to either start something new or possibly join a band in need of either a bass player or guitar player within the Ottawa area for future recordings and shows. Musically, I am only interested in writing or playing something in relation to the older styles of death metal, heavy thrash or like some of the modern blackened death metal or death doom styles of metal. If you are an experienced musician who is either a drummer or you are part of an active band looking for members and you are responsible & have your own equipment and of course any of this interest you...? Then feel free to message me, thanks!
