The band started as Dave Harris & Friends, playing Friday nights at Cup of Joe Cafe in James Bay. Originally Dave Harris as one man band (guitar/harp/footdrums/fiddle) with Sharon Wadsworth (washboard/bass/vocals), Ian Bennetts (guitar/conga/vocals) and Peter Janz (vocals/guitar/kazoo) in late 2018. Jack Lavin (founding member of the Powder Blues Band) started coming at the end of that year, playing bass and singing. Soon Dave Gray joined on drums and vocals, followed by Neil Oh Neil (Bettger) on sax, then Brad Fisher on sax. Ian had to step back and Rocket Rod Dechaine came in on conga. By June, Bob Dalziel (founder of Rukus) started coming and singing. Others came and went or were featured, including Charles Gates, Bill Johnson, Carson Mallon, Mishelle L'Amour, Paul Wainwright, Clark Brendon, Steve Ranta, Dave Rowse, Rich Hagensen, Hank Lionheart and more. Currently continuing to play at Cup of Joe Cafe every Friday from 5-7PM. A fun group with lots of singing!
