Lye

April 29, 2010

Band: Lye
Genre: Electronic rock
Year: 2006
Release: 2005 – Companion

Chatham Connection: Drummer Nigel Barylewicz is from Chatham. He spent his high school years playing guitar in local death metal bands. Nigel later moved to Toronto after high school and released a bunch of solo experimental records through the 2000’s. He plays several instruments, but landed this gig as the drummer for the popular band Lye.

Members:
Brett Carruthers: Vocals
James Toth: Guitar
Stephany Seki: Bass
Nigel Barylewicz: Drums

Notes: After solidifying their lineup, Lye took on new management, a new name, and a redeveloped website and worked for months to perfect their live show. Lye now consists of vocalist Brett Carruthers, guitarist James Toth, bassist Stephany Seki and drummer Nigel Barylewicz. Never afraid to jump from the stage and join their fans, the members of Lye have founded their reputation on an interactive and cathartic live show. Carruthers is a manic frontman whose range of emotion runs from one extreme to another. After announcing “this song is a love song” Carruthers bursts into a screaming rage amidst members of the audience.

In 2007, the band released a DVD ‘Live At The Opera House July 8 2006’.

Rearing it’s ugly head in June 2005 “A Dying Fixation” was spawned from a simple concept…friends getting together to deliver a punishing dose of extreme groove-oriented hard-core / metal music. A new project where the main focus is to bring something a little fresh to the current scene while leaving a trail of musical destruction behind them.
  They have released three tracks on ‘myspace.com’ that include Vultures, Home Town Grotesque, and Martyrs Wear Murder Weapons.

Dan Knight, Ken Mungar, Tony Bandoni and Shawn Tasker are a dynamic foursome. They deliver enthusiasm and enjoyment to all of their music. Their styles and experiences combined make them the hot act they are and enable them to present versatile arrangements of old classics, through to the contemporary music of today.

Dan Knight is a rockin’ guitarist providing lead vocals to the band. Dan has been running a family business which has given him the time to write and produce the quality material that he is used to creating. In 1987 he had a release with the song “She Lives In a Big House”. Although most of Dan’s accomplishments have been on his own, he spent nearly three years with music artist Joe Firth where he performed at some of Canada’s finest rodeos (Ponoka Stampede, Calgary Stampede, and Klondike Days) and has opened for the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.

Tony Bandoni is fret board rippin’ lead guitarist. Being one of Canada’s hottest lead players, Tony has been nominated as Canada’s instrumentalist of the year on three separate occasions. His portfolio includes Michelle Wright and Ronnie Fray.

Shawn Tasker is the youngest member of the band whose abilities shine as an enthusiastic drummer and vocalist. He has previously played with blues artist: Robin Banks, and country artists: Lorie Scott and Marshall Law as well as The Terry Ashley Band.

Ken Mungar is a groovin’ bass player with strong lead vocals. Ken has played with bands like the Rodriguez Twins, Charlie Clements, Dusty Wayne, The Concrete Cowboys and now Rebel Heart.

Along with their good humor and enthusiasm, both on and off stage, Rebel Heart performs up-tempo, toe-tapping music along with emotionally charged ballads, leaving audiences feeling fully entertained.

Niteflite (2006)

July 7, 2009
Nite Flite
Nite Flite

Band:  Niteflite
Home: Chatham Kent Ontario Area
Year: 2006
Formed: 1981
Style: Classic Cover Band

Members
(From left to right in the above pic.)
John Leigh (Doc) – Baritone sax
Pat Bates – Trombone
Jim Smith – Bass/Vocals
Vaughn Pugh – Keyboards/Vocals/Brass
Rocco Desantis – Alto Sax
St.Clair Shadd – Tenor Sax
Eldon Brown – Drums
Al Rathwell – Trumpet
Doug Smith – Guitar/Vocals (foreground right)

   The bands set lists include Chicago, Earth Wind and Fire, Blues Brothers, Beatles, Los Lobos, Blood Sweat & Tears, Wilson Pickett, and many more.
                          
Niteflite History   (From Official Bio)   
   
   Niteflite assumed its current 9-man configuration in 2003, but has existed since the early nineteen-eighties. The rhythm section, comprised of Doug Smith, Vaughn Pugh, Jim Smith, and Eldon Brown, has been together since 1970, when they formed a group called “Seven“, which featured a 3-piece horn section. And, although short-lived, this early horn-band experiment was a foretaste of things to come.
                          
   Throughout the seventies, Doug, Vaughn, Jim, and Eldon, along with guitarist Shelley Browning, continued performing under the name “Sixth Concession“. Although lacking a full horn section, the group nevertheless continued to polish and perform tunes by groups such as Chicago and Blood, Sweat, & Tears, utilizing Vaughn on trumpet, and adding St. Clair Shadd on tenor sax.     
    As the seventies drew to a close, the band went into a period of inactivity, due in part to the family and career commitments of its members. Their love of music and performing was never lost, however. In the early eighties, inspired by the movie “The Blues Brothers”, and in particular by the line “We’re putting the band back together”, the boys decided to revive the group, this time under the name “Niteflite”. The band initially consisted of the same members as “Sixth Concession” and performed in that configuration for several years. For a short time in the late eighties, a three-piece horn section was added, featuring George Willson on trumpet, Jack Drobko on trombone, and St. Clair on tenor sax.
   Throughout the nineties, Niteflite continued to perform primarily as a 5-piece group, but their love of the horn-band sound never diminished.
   In 1984, Vaughn Pugh, himself an accomplished musician on both keyboards and trumpet, had become the director of the Chatham Concert Band. As such, he had access to many fine Chatham-area musicians, and in 2003 was thus able to select several of these talented people to form the present Niteflite horn section. The new members include Al Rathwell on trumpet, Pat Bates on trombone, Rocco Desantis on alto sax, St. Clair Shadd on tenor sax, and John Leigh on baritone sax. The group’s playlist includes tunes by Chicago, Earth, Wind & Fire, Blood, Sweat & Tears, Lighthouse, Sam & Dave, Wilson Pickett, Ides of March, The Beatles, and many, many more.

Album Description
   2006 release from the award-winning Canadian singer that marries her immediately identifiable voice with an impressive collection of material that mirrors many of the changes in attitude and emotion in her life. Some songs are celebrations that come from first hand experiences while others come from that place of insightful observation that has always worked so well for this Ontario-born artist who first established herself as a force back in the early `90′s during her tenure with Arista Records Nashville. “Everything And More” is a heartfelt combination of emotions and points of view, coupled with effective shifts in arrangements and tempos, make it a complete package that finds Wright singing with conviction and passion, and, when called for, injecting the right amount of urgency or subtle shading.

Ben Srokosz (2006)

Ben
Ben

Artist: Ben Srokosz
Style: Indie / Rock / Alternative
Home: Chatham
Year: 2006

Ben Srokosz – Vocals/ Guitar/Drums/Bass

  In 2009, Ben becomes the new drummer for Square Root Of Margaret.
Ben Srokosz has been releasing solo projects for over 10 years. Another local musician capable of recording his own releases himself, Ben allows his creative side to never spoil.
   Meeting Ben, you understand quickly that he is smart and loves music for all the right reasons. Ben’s style includes the sub-pop sound and heavy influences of the east coast alternative scene.

Official Note: 

Ben Srokosz, Spur of the Moments’ founder, first artist signed, is born from a lifestyle of the do it yourrself ethic.  Often found scoffing in disgust at a pair of expensive $20 blue jeans, or up after midnight working to upkeep this little record label, he is one who looks for good things in unlikely places, and it shows in his music.  His songs are about surprise, confusion and daydreams, and the music itself is both accessible and inaccessible at the same time.  Always changing but never changing.  When asked; “I like my music to come from pure feeling, not calculation.  I just seem to write songs that make me wonder exactly where they came from, and as I figure them out, it brings me so much more joy.

These days Ben has pushed his music to a part time hobby, and has all but ceased in recording new material.  With no certain intentions to ever release another album, he devotes more of his time to recording, video production, and producing local bands.  The idea is to grow Spur of the Moment Records and find new and active artists both local and abroad.

Year: 2006 era

Biography
   Lock up your daughters and grease up your goats, because a couple o’ ol’ timey gypsy bandits are staggering yr way! Wanted posters and dime-store novellas tell of two handsome fellers by the names o’ D. Trevlon and Po Kadot (he, of Square Root of Margaret infamy). But, when these peach eatin’, spaghetti western watchin’, dustbowl architects get together, they’re called the Ghost-Town Minstrels.

   You might may be ‘xpectin’ just another night at the local waterin’ hole, but then these fellers stroll in, acoustic guitars in hand. For a dollar and a drink, these glorious b_stards will sing you harmonies so purty, and play ditties so haunting…this music has been known to charm the long-johns off a mountain man whose been standing all day long, knee deep in gopher guts!

   Once the music starts, well…that’s when the magic and mayhem begins. Men-folk are so taken by the tunes, they start to drinkin’ faster, and buyin’ shots for their neighbors! They don’t right off notice how the ladies have gotten to loosening their garments. Even so, loose garments won’t put a stop to the female sweatin’ that takes place at a Ghost-Town Minstrels show! The men-folk get drunker, and the wimmin-folk get looser. Blind beggars’ dogs start to humpin’ on barstools. Next thing ya know, their’s drinkin’, dancin’ fightin’, fussin, – all sorts of goin’s on! And if you find yourself wakin’ up at the crack o’ noon, next to some gap-toothed stranger (that you might not otherwise touch with a ten foot pole)…well then, that sweet melody dancin’ in the fog of your liqour-dented skull has been brought to you courtesy o’ the Ghost-Town Minstrels. Ask for them by name.

Po is best known for his work fronting Square Root Of Margaret

In the Spring of 2005, Square Root of Margaret came out of nowhere with a new recording titled “Levitation Days.” This CDep ended years of silence from the band, and any speculation in regards to where they were, and what they were doing…. Within weeks of it’s release, “Levitation Days” landed in the Top 50 Canadian College Radio charts with no press whatsoever! Across Canada, college radio was picking up on this psych-pop gem, and helping to re-introduce the music of Square Root of Margaret to happy ears everywhere! The band soon found themselves playing more and more live shows, working on new material, and staring directly into strobelights. They set about writing and recording a pop album for our time. 13 new songs about life, love, alien frequencies, and time travel.

…. I just wanted to add that this record, in my opinion, has some of the best gems put out from around here. The song “I Don’t Know Why” is a song that must be heard & will outlive the band for years to come. Find it and pass it on.
