Year: 1993
Format: Cassette Tape
Genre: Hard Rock, Metal
Home: Sarnia

Chatham Connection: Singer Chris Young moved to Sarnia from Chatham after high school. He had played in a few underground bands here during high school. He ended up recording a few demo releases with 3 East. Chris’s brother Charles (Chuck Young) stayed in Chatham and became the drummer for Foster Child, The Janet Theory, FL3P, Dead Girls Union, and Face For Radio (as of 2010).

Chris Young – guitar/vocals
Chris Hamlin – guitar
Brett Savory – drums
Matt Keefe – Bass

Notes: When having to come up with a genre, they consider themselves power metal. The good vibe about this band is the humour. They had allot of fun and were a great group of guys. Sometimes they would just write a goofy little song to a heavy riff and it worked. The sarcasim was working for them. 3 East worked hard to create events and shows within the underground scene and gained support from the punk movement as well. The guys were young when they wrote these demos.

  Quartette’s debut CD, review – “a ‘must listen’ for the wonderful blend of voices. Since their first appearance at Toronto’s Harbourfront venue in the summer of 1993, Quartette has quickly become one of the most electrifying collaborations on the Canadian music scene. The four women combine formidable individual talents into an astonishing whole. The soaring harmonies and unique arrangements create a musical mosaic with flavours of R& B, swing, Cajun, bluegrass, and gospel, all solidly rooted in traditional country music.”

  Who would have thought when Sherley St. Pierre and his wife Theresa formed a small country music band “The Melody Ramblers” in 1953, they started a country music tradition. Even though country music styles have changed over the years, the name “Melody Ramblers” has remained and still lives on after 40 years.

Demo Kid note 2009: I heard much about this band growing up and it was nice to know that my uncle was in this band juring their 40th year celebration. Since then, I have been lucky to meet, play and record with members from this band recently. Growing up as a punk and metal kid, I would never be into this band musically, but as I grow up and appreciate music for music, I realize that this was one band that set the standards for the best around. A band with a local legend respected by generations.
