the FADED GENES…A group of over-the-hill rockers…
Rock ‘n Roll Band – The Faded Genes, played for the Branch 101 Canadian Legion’s Canada Day BBQ. Band Leader – 7278 Peter Fosbery – (Class of ’67) Guitars/one harmonica/vocals/occ. keyboards
A group of over-the-hill rockers who play for fun for parties, Bar Mitzvahs/50+ Birthdays and certain weddings. Most members have past the half-century, and probably combined, know over 300 songs. Most of our repertoire comprises hits from the 60′s and 70′s, while our younger members are slowly, painfully dragging us into the new millennium. That said, we are music lovers and we can learn anything… as long as we love it.
We’re an eight-piece rock band with great harmonies and a horn section. We’re proud of our sound, but we’re not “prima donnas.” We can’t afford roadies, so we charge for the inconvenience of stage set-up, and a few other related expenses. Octets don’t usually come cheap, but playing for a fun-loving audience is our greatest reward. We’re not in the union, and we’ll play in many locations. We also do lots of work for charities.
Don’t hesitate to contact us. We will do our very best to meet your needs. Home
