  • I am starting a real traditional 8-piece country band firmly locked into the years and style of the late-1960s to early-1980s. Playing this music as closely as possible to how George, Buck, Willie, Gene, Patsy and Ray originally recorded it .... and the very few who honour that music these days ... Vince Gill, Mo Pitney, Lee Anne Womack, David Ball, Rhonda Vincent, Radney Foster, etc. .... with nary a hint of the awful so-called modern country junk heard on radio around here. 2 singers ( male + female, one playing acoustic rhythm ) pedal steel, lead guitar (that's me), keyboards, fiddle, bass and drums. People who love and know this music and can really play. They have to be convinced - and sound convincing - that they really enjoy this. Looking for keyboards and bass. The focus is on recreating this as closely as possible first - then come the gigs. This is a studio band. Frank Koller

  • Are you looking to collaborate with musicians other than the standard guitar, drums, bass, keyboard, and vocal? If you're still reading this then we're on the same page ... I'm a clarinettist who's interested in playing with other like-minded musicians in what I can I only describe as alternative/indie/folk/non-classical music, and who's goal is to add the clarinet to an established group/or put together a group with the intent of performing/gigging. To further entice... The clarinet is a unique instrument and can add beautiful colour, sound, and texture to groups. Clarinets have a 4-octave range as well as a huge dynamic range (ppp to fff). Clarinets also sound awesome with strings (of all sorts), brass and french horn, other wind instruments, and can fill in lead/soprano lines or add depth for harmonies and accompaniment. They're actually quite versatile. I reside in Ottawa and I'm interested in collaborating with musicians from either Ottawa or Montreal. . Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you !! sheila

  • Attention cellists and others.... I am interested in finding like-minded musician's to jam with-this could include cellists, guitarists, bassists, or violinists. I have played piano for several years and have started to combine the piano and singing with more contemporary music. My aim is to work toward some open mics and then see where it goes.
    In terms of music, I enjoy alt country/Americana, for e.g., Blue Rodeo (ok, Canadiana, in this case), the Avett Brothers, the Jayhawks, and the Decemberists and I am open to others along these lines. In particular, I think combining cello, and guitar and harmonies with this sort of music would be a lot of fun to play. I have daytime availability, as well as evenings and weekends with some planning. If you think you might be interested or have any questions, please get in touch:
