torn down units
Torn Down Units hail from the Orangeville Ontario area, and play a unique mix of Rock n’ Roll, Hard Rock and Surf music. Originally formed in 1998, they are celebrating their 20th anniversary in 2018. The band has record 4 albums, and 2 E.P.’s, and is currently in the process of recording a new album. You can find Torn Down Units music on Spotify, Apple Music, and other music services.
Rag Maple was conceived in the fall of 2013 and is situated around the Orangeville area. Raised in a family of bluegrass origin, singer/songwriter Alex McDonald teams up with the classically trained competitive fiddler Sheila Roberts. The duo throws back into high lonesome style folk while breathing new life into their sound with a more modern indie flare.
Jay and John have been performing together since 2002, playing at a wide variety of venues and events in the GTA. The band became known as The Switchbacks in 2011 when Jamie and Harry joined. In 2005, Jay released a solo CD / album of his original material entitled “Private Moore and other Stories”, and in 2012 The Switchbacks released a CD / album entitled “On the Right Track”, featuring more of Jay’s original material. At a Switchbacks show, in addition to our original material, you will hear covers of music by everyone from The Beatles, Eagles, and Blue Rodeo to Elvis, Garth Brooks and Van Morrison – and many others.
