Thanks for waiting! While you may have not known you were waiting, I have been diligently working on website pages dedicated to Gabriola Musicians. As I type this today I have just finished a list of 47 Gabriola Musician Pages. It is the start. More to come when I get the info. Please send me your info. You may ask why I’m doing this. Here is the long answer to that single word.

Why a Gabriola Musician Website?

I created a Gabriola Musician website out of the project Gabriola Songs. Gabriola Songs is 40 song CD of Gabriola Musicians singing from and about Gabriola Island. As the year went by I new I was collected a treasure trove of info about our local musicians, composers, instrumentalists, song writers and even venues.

As I move forward I will attempt to catalogue and archive as much about Gabriola Music as I can. If you want to help, send me something you think I need to know.

Cheers,

Dave Teichroeb

The Gabriola Songs Organizers are proud to announce that we have given a $4,000 donation to People For A Healthy Community( PHC). Dave Teichroeb, Gerry Stefanson and Ivan Bulic went down to the Gabriola Commons last Friday to hand over proceeds from the concert and sale of CD’s. The concert was a roaring success and  CD’s have been selling briskly since. A special thanks to Gerry for getting the CD’s to 15 local stores. He has also been hawking the Gabriola Songs CD at craft shows where he retails his Cymbal Wear Jewelry.

I’ll have picture to add soon of the grip and grab cheque hand over. For now enjoy this one. That’s Dave Teichroeb Explaining why we do this……
