Default Eves instead of mornings.

However, if anyone wants to meet evenings, the place I perform at has an all
glass front, with view to a large parking lot (free) so you can see your Porsche
at all times.

where do you perform and what do you play? There are a few (amateur) musicians at our GTG's (guitars for me and I know of at least one very decent pianist with a 993). Might be fun to come out, hear some good music and gaze at the scenery (Porsches of course!).

Hey, that's awesome that we have some musician's in our midst! I'm a composer (did my MMus at McGill) and a violinst and guitarist.

John, what studio do you operate? I did a quick google on your username, but came up empty. Too bad I didn't know that a week ago - I just booked our band in at a studio to record a cd. Could've given you some business!

I perform at Oregano Restaurant, on the North East corner of Finch and Highway 27.
Parking lot right in front.
Every Saturday from 7:30 PM to 11:30 PM, eventhough last night it went up to 2:40 AM.

As to what I play, Santana, Eagles, Prince, Latin, etc, (I play many styles),
depending on requests.
Make a request, and I might learn it and play it for you. No wrap.

Out of curiosity, tell me your favorite songs, I may already play them.

It just crossed my mind to create a Porsche drink, and you get to keep the cup
with the Porsche logo.

As for the Studio, I just recorded RyanDan (previously B4Four). They were voted
"Most promising band in Canada" at the Canadian Juno Awards.

Studio is on Winston Churchill and Derry area (JDS Studios).

Are you a full time musician?
I used to perform with Ingrid Stitt (she played sax for Corey Heart, Candy, etc).
She was also a McGill grad.

I played in Hamilton at the Jockey's club, in the 80's, with a band called Pyramid.

Nope, I'm a full-time composer with a full-time day job, too (yes, I work insane hours!) and a 5-piece punk band on the side to boot. I don't recognize the name - I only graduated from McGill in 02, and I've only lived in the Hammer for about 3 years now - we used to live in Toronto and moved out to the 905 to buy a house.

Finale for acoustic, CEP 2.1 for electronic (yeah, I know it's old and outdated, but I haven't outgrown it and don't feel like shelling out for something new). What did you do for Steinberg? I've played a bit with Cubase SX in another studio and loved it.

What model do you drive?

For the winter, an 83 944. Come Friday, the insurance goes back on my 72 911. I've also got a 99 boxster, but it's for sale. Too modern and cushy for me!

Spotted: First 993 Turbo of the season, black SB on the DVP this AM. Althoguh I've seen/driven lots of 993's the first sighting of the season always gets me stoked.

It's great to be out in the P-car again too!

RK

PS. I'm a drummer - we should start a Rennlist GTA band and play at a Saturday evening GTG somewhere outdoors.
