This week we welcome back Martin Alex Aucoin and Paul Martin. These guy have serious credentials: "Man, he can outright play" is what you hear about Martin Aucoin. He doesn’t just play, he lets you hear what he’s saying. Martin has played keyboards in numerous bands around Toronto, including Johnny Max, Morgan Davis, and Jack DeKeyzer, before moving to Nashville in 1990. He then toured with BJ Thomas for a year and a half. He also played on recording sessions for George Strait, Garth Brooks, Confederate Railroad, and John Michael Montgomery. He has played live with Larry Carlton, Tony Joe White, Bo Diddley, Ricky Van Shelton, Alan Jackson, Alex Harvey, the Drifters, Mark O'Connor, as well as having a 4 year gig at the Grand Ole Opry with Jimmy C. Newman, the great Cajun singer. Despite all that, he's a real down-to-earth guy and we had a ball last time he was here.
As an added bonus, we've also got Paul Martin, known for his work in The Blushing Brides and The Dylan Tree. He always wows us with his superb guitar playing, great singing and a huge library of classic rock tunes you forgot you ever knew.
Also, sittin' in for me on bass, we've got the amazing Dave Leprich.
Coming this fall: "Live @ the Ank", a live CD compilation recording of the Niagara Rhythm Section (NRS) and our various guests over the last 3 years.
