The Legend Band
The Legends Band plays a wide variety of music, from
Classic Rock to Alternative, Pop, Punk, and Country.
Artists include Blue Rodeo to the Tragically Hip; 54-40
to Elvis, the Stones, or Johnny Cash. From high energy
rock to blues, alternative, dance and country… music to
suit every occasion. From Peel Region, the Legends Band
are Dani Ierullo, Seay Harder, Jeff Finch, Mark
Hanniwell, Blair Francis and Dwayne Tygeson.
The band began in 1973 when 8 students at Port Credit Secondary School got together to play 50s & 60s rock ‘n’ roll music. It was a time of nostalgia with the movie American Graffiti in theatres, the musical Grease on stage and the show Happy Days was on television. Even though band members have changed over the years, what has remained the same is how the band covers music from the 50s, 60s and 70s the way you remember hearing the songs on the radio. The current lineup has been together for 10 years and likes to focus on the vocal harmonies that were so popular back then. The band travels across Ontario to Picton, Collingwood, Kincardine and Niagara Falls. They are thrilled to be a part of this year’s Brampton Rib ‘n’ Roll!
If you’re ready to rock – get ready for the Dave Murphy Band!
Formed by keyboardist and vocalist Dave Murphy in 1993, the band has entertained constantly ever since, having performed over 3000 times! The band is renowned for their musical ability and versatility, excelling in a wide range of styles including rock, blues, soul, funk and R&B.
Dave first honed his musical chops during a five year stint as a member of Ronnie Hawkins’ band The Hawks. Since that time Dave has performed with a wide range of other artists including the late, great Jeff Healey during the last five years of his tragically short career.
As bandleader of the house band at Healey’s Toronto nightclub, Dave hosted weekly performances with Jeff and a wonderful array of special guests like Edgar Winter, Ray Benson, Steve Lukather and Randy Bachman. Dave also toured worldwide with the Jeff Healey Blues Band, which Jeff affectionately referred to as “the best damned bar band in Canada.
As musical director of a tribute concert honoring Healey, Dave performed alongside the likes of Ian Gillan, Colin James and Jack Bruce.
He is a winner of Maple Blues Keyboardist of the Year. With his own band Dave has performed in almost every setting imaginable, from opening for James Brown to performing for Queen Elizabeth.
This band loves to play and it shows, so be ready for a good time and some great music with the Dave Murphy Band.
