Band Biography
  Buckets Of are a rock/country/art/space 5-piece that formed in Toronto, Canada. The group started when Corey Wells and Meaghan Bent began mashing together country and rock. Meaghan was learning drums and Wells was/is already a gnarly guitarist with Ancestors. The two wrote a handful of catchy ditties and in Summer ’07 synth-ist Katie McLeod (aka: KTron816) joined and filled in the spaces with the flowery imagery and spaciness that would develop the band’s style. The trio formed as Buckets Of. After recording bottomless demos in November ’07 at The Pound in Montreal drummer-turned-bassist Wes Moore (Lunchmeat) became the engine of the music with driving county/punk bass lines. Most recently, Tyler McPherson has joined playing pedal steel and baritone guitar. He adds the class to our stage show, both in dress and musicianship.

Instrumentation
Corey Wells – Guitar, Vocals
Meaghan Bent – Drums, Harmonica, Vocals
Katie McLeod – Keys, Synth, Tambourine, Back Vocals
Wes Moore – Bass, Back Vocals
Tyler McPherson – Pedal Steel, Baritone Guitar

Dan Noordermeer 2008

December 14, 2009

Artist: Jeff Healey
Release: Mess of Blues
Year: 2008
Genre: Blues Rock
Chatham ConnectionGuitarist Dan Noordermeer is from Chatham.

May 2009: Jeff Healey’s “Mess of Blues” wins Rock Blues Album Of The Year at the 30th Annual Blues Awards in Memphis, TN THE BLUES FOUNDATION.

2009 JUNO AWARDS : “Mess of Blues” Nominated for “Blues Album Of The Year”

The band continues to perform and keeping Jeff’s music alive at festivals throughout the world.
Touring worldwide with Jeff Healey since 2002 Dave Murphy, Dan Nordermeer, Alec Fraser, & Al Webster recorded his final album in London England & Toronto Canada entitled “Mess of Blues”.

Tracks:
01. I’m Torn Down,  02. How Blue Can You Get  03. Sugar Sweet  04. Jambalaya  05. The Weight  06. Mess O’ Blues  07. It’s Only Money  08. Like A Hurricane  09. Sittin’ On Top Of The World 10. Shake, Ratte And Roll

About Dan: Guitarist extraordinaire Dan Noordermeer has also been performing in the “Dave Murphy Band” for almost a decade, and continues to dazzle audiences with his formidable talents. Originally from Chatham, Dan now resides in Hamilton. Dan is known for his Samson-like mane of hair and his wicked sense of humour. Unlikely as it seems, Dan was a full time country musician for many years before joining the band. But for those familiar with his playing it’s no surprise, since he has an uncanny ability to play every style of music with incredible authenticity, passion and virtuosity. www.davemurphyband.com

Notes: Mess of Blues contains ten cuts, all of them chosen by Healey from what he considered “audience favorites,” rather than his own or his fine band’s preferred tunes. Four of these were recorded in front of audiences at the Islington Academy in London and, appropriately enough, at Healey’s Roadhouse (his club) in Toronto. The other six were cut at Studio 92 in Canada by Norm Barker and Richard Uglow.
