O’Hara Brothers Band- Small Town Metaphors (2003)

May 5, 2009


Artist : The O’Hara Brothers Band
Home : Chatham Ontario Canada
Release : Small Town Metaphors EP

Music Style : Rock
Date : 2003

Musicians :
Toby O’Hara – Vocals, Bass
Jeff ‘Mifflin – guitars, saxophone, B. vox
Clancy O’Hara – Piano, organ, guitar, B.vox
Rod Beaudry – drums, supporting vocals, percussion

Tracks: Hide In My Mind, Fear Tonight, Trading Stars, Hurry, Remembrance Day

The Scoop : The band does it’s own thing, reminding me of good vibes & chemistry that is relatable to a David Wilcox type experience. Built around strong talent, and a solid foundation, the band has been a staple in our scene for a long time. Seeing them live at Rockin The Bush, 2003, I was amazed at there presentation, vibe, & beautiful natural sound.
  Many people may recognize Jeff from Strings & Things, or have had him engineer their musical projects. He also gets to be at almost every event in the city with his work as a sound man. Rods drumming can be heard on early demos of his former (now disbanded) band Gates Of Rage.
