  • Experienced lead/rhythm guitarist looking to form a NEW and FRESH band for some uber classic rock vibe (check out Greta Van Fleet). Are you sick of playing New Orleans Is Sinking? Sick of playing Blow at High Dough? I sure am. I've written some tunes and itching to write a lot more.

I have a jam space if required in my basement with mixer (Allen & Heath 24 track), full PA system (JBL EONS), mics, mic stands, electronic drums (Roland TD15KV) and I even have a Carvin bass amp kicking around.

  • 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:

    • Drummer vocalist looking for musicians for christian big band project I am looking for musicians, vocalists to help me establish this unique christian band. This will be a very unique project and requires some great attention to detail and versatile musicians who can play different styles Looking for: Lead and backup vocals: We already have one male lead and backup, but we need more of each. Two guitarists: Can share duties or one lead and one rhythm Bass player: Keyboardist: and some brass, Trumpet, trombone, sax Unless the keyboardist can truly add that effect. But I prefer the real stuff. All musicians must be experienced and have their own equipment. I have the place for rehearsal in Carleton Place.
