Steelwheels was formed in 2002 with a core group of musicians going back to 1996.
Their dedication and musical abilities have allowed them to faithfully reproduce the
sounds of the Rolling Stones recordings. Guy Turnbull’s vocals are so close to the real
thing, one would swear it was Mick actually singing. Recently the band added a sax
player and a female vocalist and a R&B medley comprising songs the Stones have
covered in live performances plus a couple they wished they would have! Open guitar
tunings, stage theatrics and a passion for the Stones makes this band a must see in
2006.

Guy Turnbull, aka “Mick”, lead vocals, has performed as Mick Jagger for over two
decades. His uncanny recreation of Mick’s distinct vocal style helped him win a contest
at a local radio station. Reworking a Stones classic for concert tickets, the song became
a listener favourite and found it’s way onto regular rotation. He went on to form Stikky
Fingerz in the mid 80’s, Vancouver’s first Rolling Stones tribute band. Guy’s endless
energy and vocal chops carry over to his performances with SteelWheels

Ted Croft , aka “Ronnie”, vocals, guitar, keyboards, harmonica. Ted started his west
coast roots in 1985 with Vancouver cover band, “The Teds”. Ted performs as Ronnie
Wood in SteelWheels and just luv’s it! Slide on! His other musical achievements include
being selected after an international competition to provide the lead vocals for a CD
project in praise of the late John Lennon called “Songs for John”. SFJ, was written by
“Beaten Path”, the brainchild of two Toronto musicians, David Goyette and Tom Heyfron
(original member of 60’s group, The Troggs).

Al Sirett, aka “Keith”, lead guitar, vocals, is a native of Oxford England. His musical
influences are naturally rooted in the groups from the old country, the Beatles, the Kinks,
the Who and of course the Rolling Stones. His love of British music, past and present,
plus a keen ear and attention to detail is evident in every song he plays. But it his bang
on and over the top presentation of Keith Richards that showcases Al’s musical and
performing ability.

Dean Way, aka “Charlie”, vocals, drums and brother Gary Way, aka “Bill”, bass, vocals,
hail from London England. Playing together for more than 25 years, they have performed
in countless original and cover bands and travelled western Canada extensively
throughout the 80’s and 90’s. The Bro’s lay down the bang on groove of Watts / Wyman
and supply the musical fabric for “Keith and Ronnie” to weave.

Elaine Magus, vocals, started performing at the age of five where she sang with her
church choir. Elaine switched to rock (& R&B) in her formative years, influenced by
powerful female rockers such as Ann Wilson, Janis Joplin, and Pat Benatar. Her
powerful style infuses every song she belts out with a unique stamp of energy and
passion. Recently linking with SteelWheels to provide background vocals, Elaine admits
she loves sharing the spotlight with the Stones.

Ryan Glasgo, aka “Bobby Keys” sax, vocals, is a very busy man. Besides his duties with
Steelwheels, Ryan plays in two original projects: "The Furios", a ska, reggae, punk band
and "The Beladeans", a three piece 60's soul rock n' roll outfit. His varied influences
include everything that moves and grooves (this doesn't include Kenny G). Ryan has
now expanded his musical boundaries taking on the role of “Bobby” and enjoys
screaming out all your favourite Stones sax solos.
