The TONE DOGS
A bittersweet slice of gut-slammin’ Texas Rockin’ Blues with Twang!
The Tonedogs will shuffle their way into your soul right from the opening chord. The band is dedicated to the authenticity of its sound. What makes them different is the clean vintage sound they grind out of gear that is older than most people who come out to see them.
Even the bartenders and bouncers smile as if they have stumbled onto the hippest gig on the planet!
The Tonedogs are:
Alex Carter... Guitar,vocals,harmonica
Bob Milne….. Bass Guitar,vocals
Joe Nufrio..… Drumkit
Get ready for a night of asphalt blues burners and good old Rock n Roll to keep your heart pumpin’ and your feet jumpin’ right till last call!
The soothing sounds of Steve Melville’s jazz guitar layered over his Country, Latin, Traditional, Ballad and Jazz tracks – relaxing musical backdrop to a tapas style meal balanced by a fine wine or innovative cocktail. All happening each Tuesday night at the fabulous Uncorked on Main, 6-9 pm (when you can actually walk right into Uncorked and grab a seat!). With just a hint of Lenny Breau, this is the lounge experience Georgetown has been missing.
Steve picked up guitar at the age of 15 in his native Jamaica, and was encouraged by the expert hand of legendary Ska pioneer Ernest Ranglin. (Photo L-R: Jamaica natives Monty Alexander, Ernest Ranglin and Steve Melville).
He also plays at local events, and has a weekly Saturday stint from 6-10 pm at Georgetown’s The Cellar Steak and Seafood fine dining restaurant. Having retired from Air Canada 20 years ago, Steve has since applied his time and energy to becoming the guitarist that showed so much potential as a youth. Air Canada’s gift to the local live music scene!
Jackob began playing the guitar at the age of 13. His early musical influences include classic Rock guitar heroes such as Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page as well as more modern musicians. While in high school his musical focus was directed towards different Punk Rock and Heavy Metal bands while at the same time studying with different teachers who showed him the importance of reading music and understanding theory.
Jackob now spends most of his time familiarizing himself with the Jazz tradition while playing and gigging with a band that plays a variety of styles ranging from Swing to Jazz Fusion to Hip-Hop. He is also playing dinner music/Jazz gigs with a variety of musicians that are studying in post-secondary Music programs in Ontario.
