About the Band Members
MATT LANDRY • VOCALS, GUITAR, VIOLIN
Matthew has been playing music nearly all of his life. A third generation musician, he learned the violin at a young age and went on to win his first trophy at age four (third place, Ivan Hicks’ maritime fiddling contest) and his first classical violin competition at age six. At age twelve Matt joined his family’s rock band and quickly took to the electric guitar, falling in love with the Blues and Rock genres. His musical inspirations range from Mozart to Jean-Luc Ponte, to guitar legends such as Jeff Healey, Carlos Santana, and Stevie Ray Vaughan.
CHRIS LANDRY • DRUMS
Chris started playing drums when he was 10 years old; he played his first TV show on CBC when he was 12, he was playing with students from The University de Moncton. He has been playing in bars since he was 15. Most of his life he has played with family members. He has played in bars in Vancouver, Toronto and all over the Maritimes. His strong meter and energy is the back bone to any group he plays in.
LARRY PATTERSON • BASS, BACKUP VOCALS
Larry was always trying out various musical instruments from a very young age. Finally, he decided on the bass guitar thanks to close friend and teacher, the late great Pete King. Striving for new heights in one artistic way or another, and gaining experience with various teachers and mentors over the years, Larry brings a thick, juicy, solid bottom end to the rhythm section. Influenced by music of almost all types, but with a special fondness for 70’s & 80’s Rock including Styx, Triumph, Whitesnake, Iron Maiden, Queen, Zeppelin, Floyd and others.
