  • LINDSAY MARTELL

    Lindsay was raised in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, on Canada’s East Coast, well known for being steeped in a rich Celtic and Folk musical heritage. There he learned early in life, the power of the voice, a good song, and the ability to present it. House parties with song circles filled with acoustic music instruments, lively voices in harmony, song and stories and laughter, were a common occurrence in formative teen age years and they left a lasting impression on him. In the 60’s and 70’s homes of course there was also the constant blare of an am radio providing a pop and country soundtrack to be sung along to, beside the gospel occurring next door.

    After finishing high school in Cape Breton, Lindsay spent two years in university in Ottawa Canada. Having been bitten by the music bug, his time in Ottawa was mostly spent playing guitar, singing songs and trying to get gigs in local coffee houses in Ottawa with his like minded guitar playing, university friend in an acoustic duo. He then left university and headed west to Calgary Albera in the early ’80’s. It was there that he auditioned for and got his first spot in a touring band called “Diamondback” in 1984 and hit the road playing country rock. In 1986 he joined “The Walkers,” a cover band, as a lead singer and rhythm guitar player travelling the western provinces playing rock and roll, country and blues. Touring constantly around Alberta, Saskatchewan and BC, the band performed in clubs and pubs on the circuit in the ’80’s, and he’s been on the road, entertaining audiences ever since.

    Lindsay moved to Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island BC, Canada in 1988 to attend VIU (formerly Malaspina College) and studied in the 2 year Jazz Music Diploma program.

    In ’88 in Nanaimo, Lindsay started playing with some of his college music classmates in a band in order to practice their craft while earning a few dollars to help finance their education, and “Rubber Soul” was born. The core of Rubber Soul remains to this day. Founding members Lindsay Martell on guitar and vocals, Joel Spillette on keyboards and vocals and Brock Miller on tenor sax and vocals are augmented by longtime Rubber Soul alumni Colin Perry on baritone sax and vocals, Todd Sacerty on bass and Phil Wipper on drums. After a long hiatus while Lindsay lived abroad, the band is back performing again, for special occasions, as energetic and funky as ever.
    1996 Lindsay released “Moris”

    Moris is the name of the band and of the one and only cd released by the group. It contained a collection of songs Lindsay had written between ’93-’95, along with one cover of a song written by fellow Canadian and friend of the band, Sarah Harmer, who also made a guest appearance on the song. Canadian Acoustic Slide Guitar icon Ken Hamm also made a guest appearance, as did Kate Fenner (Bourbon Tabernacle Choir) Moris is: Lindsay Martell vocals, acoustic and electric guitars, Jason Euringer acoustic and electric guitars and vocals, Todd Sacerty bass, and Bob Wilson on drums.
    Moris won top awards at radio Q100’s Rocktoria Contest in Victoria, and C-Fox’s Band Search in Vancouver in 1997, was featured on MuchWest Music TV, KISM FM in Bellingham Washington’s Locals Only Program, and they played hard every night and made many friends in their short existence. And they left behind a small treasure in the Moris album.
    In 1996 Lindsay started and hosted a weekly evening of live original music at the Queen’s Hotel in Nanaimo which gave a platform for performance and promotion of unsigned original talent from Vancouver Island. The show called Locally Grown ran successfully for almost 3 years.

  • Dino DiNicolo
    Dino DiNicolo has been playing music all his life. He started on the electric organ and later left it behind. Those simple electronic grooves lingered, leaving a lasting impression and early fuel for the rhythmic guru.

Around the world, Dino has captivated listeners with his humility, innate charisma and honest good-looks.

  • LINDSAY MARTELL

    Lindsay was raised in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, on Canada’s East Coast, well known for being steeped in a rich Celtic and Folk musical heritage. There he learned early in life, the power of the voice, a good song, and the ability to present it. House parties with song circles filled with acoustic music instruments, lively voices in harmony, song and stories and laughter, were a common occurrence in formative teen age years and they left a lasting impression on him. In the 60’s and 70’s homes of course there was also the constant blare of an am radio providing a pop and country soundtrack to be sung along to, beside the gospel occurring next door.

    After finishing high school in Cape Breton, Lindsay spent two years in university in Ottawa Canada. Having been bitten by the music bug, his time in Ottawa was mostly spent playing guitar, singing songs and trying to get gigs in local coffee houses in Ottawa with his like minded guitar playing, university friend in an acoustic duo. He then left university and headed west to Calgary Albera in the early ’80’s. It was there that he auditioned for and got his first spot in a touring band called “Diamondback” in 1984 and hit the road playing country rock. In 1986 he joined “The Walkers,” a cover band, as a lead singer and rhythm guitar player travelling the western provinces playing rock and roll, country and blues. Touring constantly around Alberta, Saskatchewan and BC, the band performed in clubs and pubs on the circuit in the ’80’s, and he’s been on the road, entertaining audiences ever since.

    Lindsay moved to Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island BC, Canada in 1988 to attend VIU (formerly Malaspina College) and studied in the 2 year Jazz Music Diploma program.

    In ’88 in Nanaimo, Lindsay started playing with some of his college music classmates in a band in order to practice their craft while earning a few dollars to help finance their education, and “Rubber Soul” was born. The core of Rubber Soul remains to this day. Founding members Lindsay Martell on guitar and vocals, Joel Spillette on keyboards and vocals and Brock Miller on tenor sax and vocals are augmented by longtime Rubber Soul alumni Colin Perry on baritone sax and vocals, Todd Sacerty on bass and Phil Wipper on drums. After a long hiatus while Lindsay lived abroad, the band is back performing again, for special occasions, as energetic and funky as ever.
    1996 Lindsay released “Moris”

    Moris is the name of the band and of the one and only cd released by the group. It contained a collection of songs Lindsay had written between ’93-’95, along with one cover of a song written by fellow Canadian and friend of the band, Sarah Harmer, who also made a guest appearance on the song. Canadian Acoustic Slide Guitar icon Ken Hamm also made a guest appearance, as did Kate Fenner (Bourbon Tabernacle Choir) Moris is: Lindsay Martell vocals, acoustic and electric guitars, Jason Euringer acoustic and electric guitars and vocals, Todd Sacerty bass, and Bob Wilson on drums.

I am flabbergasted at how incredibly Curtis plays his guitar and Leslie knocks it out of the ballpark with her brilliant vocals and shining personality. They performed to a very appreciative audience last night – me being one of them. It’s the first time I’ve heard them as a duo and it is mindblowing. Leslie kept the beat on a foot beat box and it was awesome.

  • Blue Mistral

    Lisa Dunn, born Lisa Elliott, always loved to sing from a very young age and was around music all her life. Early influences heard in the home included artists such as B.B. King, Al Green, Gladys Knight and the Pips and Aretha Franklin.

    It wasn’t until her first marriage in 1992, where she became Lisa Fennell, that she would attempt her hand at singing in public due to her shy nature. Lisa sang in a church choir in Philadelphia and fell in love with gospel music. She returned to Canada four years later and eventually went back to SFU to complete her Bachelor of Education.

    During her time as a university student, she met some like minded people involved in the arts and ended up joining Coastal Sound Music in 2005. After a few years singing as a 1st soprano, Lisa sang her first lead in a small accapella group, formed in this choir. Lisa loved harmonies and enjoyed the choir, but it became difficult to continue after her mother’s passing in 2010.

    After a few musicians happened to hear Lisa singing , she was invited to sit in on the Jazz Cellar stage for their Blue Mondays. Within the year, Lisa had made connections with some of the best musicians in the city and Hell’s Gate Blues Band was formed in the spring of 2012. The Freakin’ Groovies band formed in 2013 and The Blue Mistral Trio followed in 2015. Missing the sound of the choir and the harmonies, Lisa joined City Soul Choir in September of 2105 and found the sound she had been missing from her time in Philadelphia.

    Recently married in May of 2016, Lisa Fennell became Lisa Dunn. She continues to take on new projects, sings with her existing bands, performs for charity events and is working on more original material.

    Blue Mistral

    Lisa Dunn, born Lisa Elliott, always loved to sing from a very young age and was around music all her life. Early influences heard in the home included artists such as B.B. King, Al Green, Gladys Knight and the Pips and Aretha Franklin.

    It wasn’t until her first marriage in 1992, where she became Lisa Fennell, that she would attempt her hand at singing in public due to her shy nature. Lisa sang in a church choir in Philadelphia and fell in love with gospel music. She returned to Canada four years later and eventually went back to SFU to complete her Bachelor of Education.

    During her time as a university student, she met some like minded people involved in the arts and ended up joining Coastal Sound Music in 2005. After a few years singing as a 1st soprano, Lisa sang her first lead in a small accapella group, formed in this choir. Lisa loved harmonies and enjoyed the choir, but it became difficult to continue after her mother’s passing in 2010.

  • Dino DiNicolo
    Dino DiNicolo has been playing music all his life. He started on the electric organ and later left it behind. Those simple electronic grooves lingered, leaving a lasting impression and early fuel for the rhythmic guru. As the electric bass grew into an extension of his hands and his voice developed a rhythmic center of its own, Dino DiNicolo became a master musician with a groove so deep that it moves the mind, the body and the soul.
    His career has taken him to the countries of Hawaii, Japan, Grand Cayman, New Zealand and across the continents of Europe and North America. Around the world, Dino has captivated listeners with his humility, innate charisma and honest good-looks. He generates a positive energy wherever he performs and leaves his audience always wanting more.
    He grooves comfortably in many styles of music and has been a contributor to a variety of projects. As a performer, session player and composer, he has worked with – EMI Publishing Canada, John Parr, Supertonic, Uno Mas, Don Alder, Riley and the Ryze, Melanie Dekker, The Town Pants, Sherry St. Germain and many more. As well, Dino has had the honour of sharing the stage opening for Mick Fleetwood’s Blues Band.
    Dino has also forayed into the movie industry. In addition to performing and recording with Michael Moriarty of the show Law and Order, Dino does some acting on the side. This flim journey started after landing a role in the Disney TV show ‘So Weird’, more recently in “The 100”, and branches out with some of his music being commandeered for sound tracks in various pilots and documentaries. His first three solo album releases have fueled the fire for his most recent album “Skin and Bones”.
    The impressive list of accomplishments continues to grow from the man who never stops: Dino DiNicolo.
