Anthony Rissesco violinist extrordinaire of the Halifax music scene has played with Lenny Gallant, Anne Murray, Papilio  and Symphony Nova Scotia.

 

Chris Conley lives in Innisfil Ontario where he plays any instrument you put in front of him and then will disassemble and rebuild it better. He is a much in demand guitarist, bassist, mandolin player and all around diletante.
