ABOUT THE BAND

JUSTIN

I started a young rock band called the Lads, this was young group of teens, Robert O. Jr., Lester A., Leonard O., and myself. My first encounter of classic rock. Little did I know I would still enjoy this music many years after. Most of the music we played were tunes from Nazareth, BTO, Beatles, Steppenwolf, Rolling Stones, Cars, Creedence Clearwater Rival and Steve Miller. Went on to play with other musicians under Justin Boshey and the Boys. I played in Thunder bay, Fort Frances, Kenora, Winnipeg and Miineapolis. Today I play country rock, classic rock and some blues depending on which musicians are with me. I love playing any kind of music, its something I loved listening to since I was teenager. I'm grateful I've been lucky enough to associate with such great inspiration. Recently created a new band which is known as Distant Legacy. In this Band are a great bunch of guys that love music and have fun playing it. That's the kind of atmosphere anybody wants to be around. In a short while we gained some good exposure, and we will be around for awhile. We hope to record our own original music in the near future.

He likes to be innovative with his lead solos. Glen also possesses a powerful lead vocal. His passion is playing music. He has written his own music which he will record in the near future.


BRYAN

Bryan is been around for awhile and is no stranger to the music world. He likes to play his drums loud and when he's behind the drums you can feel the vibe. As a drummer his exposure is rooted through many great bands around Thunder Bay, Kenora and Fort Frances. Byran is definitely a rocker is defined by the roar of the hard rock sound of his symbols, snare and the tom toms.
