Promoting Musicians & Entertainers

Doug loves to promote the musicians or entertainers he has met or worked with in his life. 

There are links to every musician or entertainer if they have one. He will include links if requested. 

Doug knows that a winning team needs many players and he surrounds himself with talented people. 

It is very important to Doug to help promote so many amazing musicians and entertainers in Canada and abroad. 

All musicians and entertainers are in ALPHABETICAL order by first name.

Doug also promotes these musicians & entertainers on Spotify - These pictures are also promoted on his Spotify profile. 

Promoting People

Musicians - Fans - Entertainers - Family

It is very important to Doug to promote the people in his music life. The people that he surrounds himself with are the fabric of who he is. We are always learning and life is truly a one shot adventure. Doug never wants to take any person in his life for granted. Each and everyone has so much to offer all of us.

There is no better reward to him than putting smiles on peoples faces. If it leaves a fond memory of him after he us gone, then his life was truly successful.

Three musicians beside Doug are Robert Dillon (Lead Guitar) on top right, Quentin Bell (Drummer) in the middle right and BBQ Bob Clermont (Bass Guitar) on the bottom right. All members of the Gib Rozon Band 2019. All three men are very talented and accomplished musicians and singers.

Aaron Lafont

Drummer - Rhythm Guitar - Singer

Aaron is a very talented musician. Doug met him in 2019 at the Arnprior Legion Open Mic at only 17 years old. He is quite talented on the drums and better than some older drummers that Doug knows but he is not naming any names. LOL

He has a lot of years ahead of him, so there is no telling where his music will take in in 5, 10 or 50 years. He is not wearing his best stagewear in this picture but he does clean up nice.

Adam Hamelin

Rhythm Guitar - Drums - Singer

Doug met Adam for the first time in 2021 at Georges Bar & Grill where Adam was hosting George's Country Jam in Munster. Luckily music venues were starting to open up again after a few lock downs in Ontario.

Adam will be the first one to tell you that he was born into music and so grateful for all the opportunities available to him early in his music carreer.

Doug has personally seen Adam welcome beginners to professionals into his music venue and musicians of all ages. A senior musician of 77 years told Doug it's the most welcome any host has made him feel in many years.

Doug is looking forward to supporting Adam in the years ahead. Doug will probably be asking for his expertise too.

Aerik Watson

Rhythm Guitar - Singer - Songwriter - Recording Artist

Doug met Aerik at the Legion Open Mic in Arnprior, Ontario. Music is in Aerik's family. His father Ron also plays guitar and sings.

Aerik became a professional recording artist in 2021 during the Covid19 Pandemic. You can hear his music on many streaming platforms and his new album "Once Upon a Time" on Bandcamp.

Aerik performs in many different venues throughout the Ottawa Valley.

Al Galant

Rhythm Guitar - Singer

Doug met Al at the Sunday Open Mic at the Bells Corners Legion. Al loves music. You can find him and his wife Sheila and many musical shows or Open Mics throughout the Ottawa Valley.

Alan Cripps

Lead Guitar Player - Singer

Here is a real character. Al has been my lead guitar player for a number if gigs in 2019. We are thinking about bringing our comedy routines on the road. Al has his own unique sense of humour that will get you laughing or chasing him out of your establishment. LOL Either way, he is a great person to know and call a friend. Al is a very talented lead guitar player with any style of music.

This picture is from Open Mic 2020 at Alice's in Carp, Ontario.

Andrew Tait

Rhythm Guitar - Singer

Andrew is one of the founding members of the Friday Night Jam sessions at the Legion in Arnprior. You can find Andrew at a number of Open Mics in the Ottawa Valley.

Andrew has dozens of different hats. Maybe the "Madhatter" as a stage name.
