Toronto rock band MAINGATE featuring Romanian bassist Mihai Zaharia

Mihai Zaharia and I come from the same hometown: Baia Mare, Transylvania, Romania.

As my Canadian Immigrant Song unfolds, I am happy to report on hometown emigrants/immigrants that do what every human being is supposed to do: lead a happy life.

In a nutshell, Mihai is a MUSICIAN.

Back in Romania, and then in Toronto (since his arrival in 2002), Mihai menthored young musicians, wrote, played and sung music.

He is currently sharing the boards as a bassist with a Toronto band that is about to break, MAINGATE.

They have recently been invited to be part of the INDIE MUSIC SHOWCASE CONCERT SERIES on (there is a wealth of great shows on the site, BTW).

Below are 14 minutes of hot Canadian rock, filmed in HD and professionally recorded!
