Who are The Wants? Who wants to know? The Wants are your new favorite band - that's Who! Were they friends first, or a band first? The answer is Yes!

Their combined musical talents and great hairdos have made them one of the most sought-after bands in the rarified world of fine dining and live streaming music. They decided to come together in the summer of the dreaded 2020 to make a super group to restore peace and joy the galaxy. 

The Wants Want nothing more than for you to want to hear them and have a smashing good time doing so and have very carefully conceived of their repertoire as what they like to call “Good Music”. They put their own spin on a mix of dusted off pop tunes from the likes of The Police, Bob Marley, Bob Dylan, Buddy Holly, The Everly Brothers and much more. They also love to play the Jazz Music. Dare I say more?! Oh Yes! You will also enjoy some originals song writing.

Matt Pease has been playing drums in Victoria for over 30 years, which is a very long time if you think about it so please try not to. Some say perhaps a little too long. He is one of the most hired percussionists in the greater Vic West area, not necessarily for his skills on the kit, but for his misdemeanors and various crimes. Matt grew up in an eclectic musical family which explains a lot if you have ever met him. He plays in a wide variety of various styles from very loud to a little less loud and has studied with such great drummers as Claude Ranger in the ancient art of tapatapa and boom chicka boom chicka. Not only can he play the drums but the cymbals and also the things you do with your feet. He is fun to see live and I recommend you check him out. Buy him a sandwich, he’s probably hungry.

Gord Light’s name has been spoken in hushes whispers throughout the dark corners of the Victoria music scene for the past seven years. Is he a bassist? Guitarist? Vocalist? Songwriter? We may never know…

Nick Mintenko is a mult-instrumentalist, and songwriter from Victoria, B.C. He really tries his best, and he believes in the internet. You can find a lot of him there, but he’s great to see in person.

Danielle is many things, and one of those things is a musician, trying her hand at a variety of instruments, but mainly an acoustic guitarist and vocalist. She has schemed herself across oceans and mountains with her musicality, most recently when the world was more operational, she performed in the Canadian Rockies as a solo act for Fairmont Hotels in Jasper and Banff. Like Matt, she harkens from a musical family and upbringing, and would probably appreciate a sandwich; like Nick, she really tries her best; and like Gord, her elusive nature can leave you wondering where the heck she is at any given moment, a bit like your keys or sunglasses in springtime. I suggest you spend an evening listening to her music to get to know her best.
