"Silence In B’tween” is a professional, soft and ‘easy on the ears’ musical group of ‘fun-loving’ and passionate musicians who love blending classic musical genres of many generations, from the 40’s era to the modern scene.We play Foxtrots, Rumbas, Waltzes, Cha-Cha’s, 3 steps, Polkas and contemporary dancing styles from a repertoire of Yesteryear Pop/Vocal Greats, 50's Rock & Roll/Do-wop, Swing/Jazz, Traditional Country and 70’s Soft Rock music. We pretty well have no boundaries on musical styles.
“Silence In B’tween” is your perfect entertainment solution for Family Reunions, Weddings, House Parties, Anniversary/Milestone Celebrations, Social Club Gatherings, 60+plus Events, Seniors Events, Seniors Musical Entertainment, Dinner Dances or Cocktail Functions. The common attributes ascribed to their brave & unbiased repertoire are beautiful melodic structures layered with soft & crisp palette of acoustic sounds filled with dynamics and an inconspicuous silence between every musical note. Many groups shy away from playing the likes of Wilf Carter, Charlie Rich, Gordon Lightfoot, Frank Sinatra, Everly Brothers, BJ Thomas, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, Tony Bennett, Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley, Neil Diamond, Engelbert Humperdinck to Blue Rodeo, U2 and Glen Campbell but in their steadfast love of all music, the "Silence In B’tween" fills the void.
This acoustically inclined group will endeavor to provide a musical stream that will warm the heart & soul and enrich your special event with the unique ‘chameleon-like’ Vocals in its full splendor, Backup Vocal Harmonies, tasteful Piano sounds, Keyboard generated string sounds, light swinging’ Percussion & Brushes, Bass Guitar and Acoustic Guitar.
John Hodgson is our feature Vocalist & Rhythm Guitar player and the most smooth, talking, moving guy in the group. John has the knack of getting the audience involved while he immerses himself with the crowd and quickly develops a rapport with the audience such that the smiling faces, the singing, the dancing and tapping of the feet is simply inevitable. John has the uncanny ability to emulate and sound like many of the great recording artists which we perform and is never without that smile and infectious enthusiasm that will warm your heart.
John de Waal & Gail Runge: both of these fine gents are drummers. Naturally we use one drummer at a time but because of varying schedules and availability we are very fortunate to call on any one of these extremely talented players to join us.
Marc Lamontagne, is our foot-stomping Keyboard player who always attempts to cover multiple musical parts and although quiet is always excited and intense when tickling the ivories. Above all his true reason for playing is the love and appreciation for all forms of music and the pleasure it gives to listeners.
Neil Bentley: Dependable Bass Player and Vocalist who along with our drummer truly keeps the 'under-carriage' of our repertoire moving along on a solid path. Neil began his professional music career in the mid-seventies working with local jazz and pop music bands in Calgary. After his first taste of country music he was hooked and began to work with Debi Lori Kaye and Donna and Leroy of The Tommy Hunter Show. This lead to an opportunity to play with the legendary Ian Tyson as Ian began the incredibly successful cowboy music revival phase of his career. Neil has traveled North America and appeared on many concert stages, television and radio shows, recording with Ian and many other prominent musicians. Neil and two other members of Ian Tyson's band formed the original Great Western Orchestra which went on to win a Juno.
