 Dr. Dave Revue

Dr. Dave Foster is a highly acclaimed guitarist, singer, songwriter known for his searing guitar solos, solid rhythm and impeccable technique. Ricky Roy masters the low frequencies, harmonizing perfectly, and both takes rein of lead vocals and provides back up. Mario Martin is a drummer who doesn't just command our attention with his dynamic stick swinging skills, he's also a high tenor who lends his voice on solo and backup vocals. Combined, they form the Dr. Dave Revue with a huge repertoire of songs spanning from Classic Rock to Blues, Motown, Funk, Soul, R & B, Swing and everything in between.

The experiences these guys have in common go beyond being multi-styled, versatile musicians. They all started out and found their love for music before their teen years, have all been formally trained, are long time veterans of the music business with experience in all types of venues, and have performed and toured with a multitude of musicians. While those similarities in musicianship and experiences aren't always a prelude to a symbiotic union, their musical synergy comes together like a precisely tuned, well oiled machine.

Dr. Dave and Ricky first met as sidemen in a local Big Band gig where they hit it off right away . When Dave needed a bass player in a pinch, Ricky agreed to lend his talents without hesitation. Later, Mario was recommended as a drummer for a gig and impressed them with his sound on the skins. After playing together with no rehearsal time, they found they had a remarkable musical chemistry and decided to form the trio known as the Dr. Dave Revue in 2004. The three of them together have become a force to be reckoned with.

Their first rehearsal together in Ottawa's legendary Rainbow Bistro turned out to become a regular gig, as the perfectly matched trio had everyone in the club out of their seats and tearing up the dance floor! With gutsy vocals and musical wizardry, this band is a high energy classic rock trio covering favourites from the 60's and 70's with a driving edge that has come to be expected.

This is a band not to be missed!
