Gabriola Music On Streaming Services

Well its been quite a while since I wrote a new post. Lately I’ve been discovering our very own Gabriola Musicians on streaming services. Musicians and Songwriters who have loaded their music up to various streaming services. Band Camp, Amazon Music, Tidal, Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube etc. I’ve created a playlist on Spotify called Gabriola Songs to make it easy to get started finding Gabriola music.

Note: most streaming services require a monthly subscription fee. Some artists will only be on the free(for the artist) services like Band Camp, Sound Cloud and You Tube.

Gabriola Musicians Who Are Streaming

Here is a partial list of who I found so far: Corbin Keep, Tina Jones, Dave Teichroeb, Sarah Osborne, Brian Green, Mad For Joy, The Kerplunks, Gary Fjellgarrd, Atlantis One, Paul Gellman, Joshua Wood, Bob Bossin, Nerdicus, DJ Washed Up, NEAVV, Sly Jones, Steve Elder and coming soon Niz Wiz. Could be more and I’ll add then in as discovered.

This is a spotufy playlist. You may need a subscription to listen.
Above is a mixcloud link to the podcast of the radio show Road Poets . Dave Teichroeb is the host.

Allways Follow the Artist

Gabriola songs was created to promote and support the music of Gabriola Songwiters and Musicians. Our big plan was to hold something called Summer Fest. Well the pamdenic sure has put that on hold. It is important to know musicians really only make money when they play live. All the other stuff is essentially ways to promote and keep the fans and audience connected to their music and careers. Times have changed from when an artist sold CDs at record stores, online or at concerts. It’s very important to FOLLOW the artist. This is their connection to you. Each time they upload music you’ll be told about it. It also helps them gain credibilty and more inclusion in the streaming service’s official playlists. When a musican is added to an official playlist it’s almost the same as what getting played on the radio was in the “old days”. Help feed the algorithym.

Streaming Services Don’t Pay Musicians… Much

I also need to mention this about streaming. Most musicians get so little from the streaming services the music is essentially free. Below is a chart showing average payouts. From a high of .01 per stream on Amazon to .0001 per play on Youtube(free not Red). An example on Spotify is 1000 streams would make the artist $30. About enough for a burger and beer. Buy your favourite artist a beer when you see them too!

Find Another Way To Support Musicians

Always find another way to pay for your Gabriola music on streaming services. Band Camp allows Artists to sell their music directly to you. (Some Artists will only stream through Band Camp because they offer this.) Throw a big tip at the market when they play live. Pay to watch their online concerts. Buy a ticket to see their concert. Go to their website and buy a CD or other merchandise. Spotify allows artists to post a link for you to send money directly to the artist.


Most of all listen. Listen to the incredible art your fellow Gabriola Islanders have created. Join or find a streaming service and listen. Learn the songs and words. Find your favourite songs. Tell them. Follow the artist to help them and to know when new music is released. We will play live again. Nothing is greater than the thrill of seeing fans mouthing or singing along to the words of a song you wrote.

See you on the lawn this summer, Dave Teichroeb

Yes we like to Rock!

Dave Teichroeb Band – September 19th 5 -8pm at the Gabriola Commons Timber Frame Building

Tickets are $10 & purchased here: or email to make a reservation

Gabriola’s own Dave Teichroeb (Guitar/vox), Kelly Field(bass) and Rob Remurda(drums) are performing a two set rock show of mostly original tunes. Bring a picnic and a chair and hear some live music out front of the Timber Frame building. They have been woodshedding these songs for months and need you to witness them in person. There is lots of room to physically distance. The show is limited to 40 guests, so reserve early by buying a ticket. Dave says,” We’ve some great new tunes I’m really proud of and the band is sounding amazing. Been waiting years to get a band like this going.” There will be a short acoustic set and then it goes electric! Ron Cote of Road Runner Mobile is doing our sound.

The Dave Teichroeb band plays songs written by Dave over his 30 + years as a performing musician. The music is described as a mix of folk, rock, blues and country. We sometimes throw in a few Neil Young covers or something a bit more eclectic from the past.

Concert On The Screen is a must see and hear way for to celebrate our wonderful Island. Kelly Field is the bass playing foundation of many, perhaps most Gabriola bands and the inspiration for the show. Before the pandemic Kelly had planned a fundraiser where he would learn to play the music of his least favourite band, the Beatles. Kinda like Fabio getting his head shaved for charity. That got cancelled until one day, Dave Teichroeb, who also plays in a band with Kelly, uttered the words Concert On The Screen. A replacement fundraiser for the long running Concert On The Green was Born.

The Band

Who are these talented local musicians? The steller band of our Gabriola musical kin have been working hard tduring the pandemic to create a must see musical experience. Eight musicians. Four singing the leads and four playing the tunes.

Kelly Field is the bass playing foundation of many, perhaps most Gabriola bands and the inspiration for the show.
Andreas Kahre(drums) grew up in Ringo’s shadow, and tried to get away by chosing a life of wanton free jazz, contemporary gamelan and electronic music. But as he has since learned, there is no escaping the fab four.
Frank Sehr is Gabriola’s guitar virtuoso who performs weekly at the Surf. Kelly and Andreas join him in a band performing progressive and art rock.
Ian Cox plays keys and has studied music at Capilano University, written and arranged choral music, led original projects and played some of Canada’s biggest music festivals. 
Fraser  Gabbott(vocals and guitar) has a vast repertoire of English bands, especially the Beatles. A talented harpist and guitarist as well, he will sing a few solo tunes at half time.
Jennefer Laidley (vocals)performs in the Gabriola Chamber Ensemble choir and at Gabriola open Mic’s. In the before time she was a member of Toronto’s Rock-N-Roll Newchoir. 
David Botten(vocals) is singer, actor, musician, and graphic artist. A member of Twilight Radio Theatre and many local bands.
Chris Doherty(vocals) is a singer/guitarist for Gabriola band Deja’vu. His big charm and talent shines when it come to covering the Beatles.

Gabriola Songs is pleased to announce a partnership with the Gabriola Lions to produce a 2020 online fundraising concert called Concert On The Screen – Music Of The Beatles. As per usual it will be on a Thursday night. August 13 – 7 pm. We are still laughing how well the name works! This is the Lions anual “Concert On The Green” fundraiser to raise money for the Gabriola community.

The actual concert will occur in a physically distanced performance space and be shown on-line using ZOOM. To go to the concert we will be providing an online ticket service where you buy a link to the show. There will also be a donate button to give money directly to the Gabriola Lions. Concert goers will have the chance to clap, and be seen if they choose to. The exciting part is the whole Isand is invited to watch the same show at the same time. It will also be a great oppourtunity to thank the frontline workers and celebrate our fantastic community. And of course, fundraise for the Gabriola Lions who do so much for our Gabriola Island.

Secretly we have been working for months on a replacement show for the annual Lions Concert On The Green Fundraiser. Once the name Concert On The Screen was hatched we have been busy putting all the behind the scene stuff together to make an online fundraising concert a reality. In the tradition of having cover bands perform at Concert On The Green, we have enlisted an all star Beatles Band of Gabriola musicians. The whole story is we were going to be doing a big Beatles Music concert in June at the Community hall. You know the rest of that story.

Here’s what we have so far:

Gabriola Couchfest Musician Guaranty

Gabriola Songs is proud to offer a Gabriola Couchfest Musician Guaranty of $1000 to the Gabriola Couchfest. $100 to 9 Music acts(solo & groups) and 1 dance troupe. Each show is 30 minutes long. You can help by going to Couch Fest and buying a $10 ticket to a show or $40 for the whole festival.

Gabriola Couchfest Musician Guaranty, Gabriola Songs, Gabriola Music

This event occurs Fri 22 May 2020 6:15 pm – Sun 24 May 2020 5:15 pm PDTon the web using Zoom. Tickets are $10 for each of the acts or $40 for all 11 acts.

Giving a $100 Gabriola Couchfest Musician Guaranty is Gabriola Songs way of helping out the Gabriola Musical community. Our initial concern was how many North American Professional acts are giving away their performances for free. Wouldn’t it be great to underwrite the efforts of our island musicians. A strong musical community always includes paying musicians.

It is impossible to holds a live show due to the Pandemic. Gabriola Songs was planning a 2020 summer festival this year featuring Gabriola Musicians. Naturally, we had to put our festival plans on hold till 2021. We care also exploring other ways we can partner to get funds to those musicians that need it most. In the meantime you can reminisce about the great Gabriola Songs music night we held by looking at picture from the release party. You can also still buy a CD or download as well.

The Gabrioa Couchfest was created by Julie Sperber of Gabriola Community Economic Development . She received money for Covid 19 Pandemic relief and hired Dinah Dee to create an online festival.

Stay tuned for more event plans from Gabriola Songs. Get out and support local music!

Greetings as we emerge from complete isolation. This summer(2020) Gabriola Songs was planning to hold Gabriola Summer Fest. Unfourtunately we have had to hold off until 2021 due to physical distancing concerns that come with a live music event.

What is the plan? The plan is to hold an evening and a day of local music at the commons in July 2021. A Friday night concert/dance to electronic music, pancake breakfest with live music, afternoon of live music and workshops and an evening dine and dance party to live bands. Possibly a studio tour on the Sunday as well. All local and paid to perform. Still spit balling on this. If you have input or ideas get a hold of us.

Gabriola songs is commiteed to increasing the amount of paid local music events. We believe a healthy musical community attracts more music. And that paying musicians for their art improves the amount and quality of music events held each year on Gabriola Island. That pay comes from you, the audience.

As always have a look at our musicians of Gabriola pages.

You can bet the Dog House Blues Revue will be there when Gabriola Summer Fest happens.

Gabriola Video for the song Gabriola by Dave Teichroeb

gabriola video, gabriola songs, malaspina galleries

Almost forgot to upload this. Me, Dave Teichroeb, the authour of this post, created a Gabriola video. Essentially a slide show of all things Salish Sea with some concert fottage and musician pics. Most of the Gabriola musicians who participated in the Gabriola Songs CD and concert are featured. The song, Gabriola, was the inspiration for the Gabriola Songs double CD. The backing band on this recording are The Kramdens from Guelph , Ontario. They can be seen in some live clips added from a theatre show I did with them. Live footage of a concert from Cultivate Music Festival includes the Gabriola Singers as my choir. That was a blast.

This Gabriola video was my first crack at video editing!

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 collecting 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.
