The Salt Cellars were started by Rob Bersan & Virginia deCarle, a singing/songwriting duo from Wilno and Maynooth in 2016. Ron Kapitain joined them in the summer of 2017 on the harp and accordion. And in 2018 they became a full band with Rick Joudrey on bass, Brendon Burgess on percussion and Anne Wilde on harmonies!! They played their first show as a band in April of 2018 to a very appreciative crowd. Their all original music and energetic performance got the crowd on their feet and dancing along.

In the late 70’s Lester Behm and Rick Lewis hooked up due to their desire to create a band. Both liked Rock and Roll! This band was called Rox featuring Lester on guitar & vocals and Rick on drums.
This was a successful venture for these young men. Rick Lewis moved on, gaining experience with several other bands as a guitar and vocalist. Lester Behm also moved on as a guitar and vocalist with other bands
In early 2012, after many years, Lester and Rick reunited. At this point their new creation, Reckless was born!
In 2016 Dave Smith (Drums) and Matt Laurier (Bass) joined the band as the solid drive behind Rick and Lester’s guitars and vocals.

The Dinner Is Ruined is a Canadian indie rock band. the band plays an experimental and improvisational brand of blues rock. The band members are Dale Morningstar, Dave Clark and Dr. Johnny Pee.
