Motivation

«Very unfortunately, our friend Larry Ayotte has been diagnosed with this disease 6 years ago already. So, with Larry, his wife Jackie and a small group of friends we have decided to organize this Benefit Dance for the ALS society, who provides much help, financial and otherwise, to the whole families of those unfortunately affected by the disease».


About The Classics

The Classics

Roger Boudreau, Steve Roy and Bruce Macleod

The Classics sound like the songs they cover. Solid bass lines played over tightly-arranged drum tracks provide the bottom end for keyboard, acoustic or electric guitar voicing and tight vocal harmonies. These musical ingredients recreate a wide variety of the classics hits of the following genres: Rock and Roll (Chuck Berry, Dion, etc.), Classic Rock (The Eagles, Van Morrison, etc.), Country (Marty Robbins, Steve Earle, etc.).
