Today’s audio podcast features hot Ottawa power-blues trio JOE GASPAR BAND – including one of the best vocalists in rock and blues North America has today.

Listen to a great set of professional studio&live recordings on ReverbNation , or read the band’s profile.

My friendship with Joe Gaspar, the band’s leader (vocals and bass), goes back to 1993 in Transylvania. At the time, I was promoting good music as a live FM radio jock, while Joe worked hard as a musician in another spectacular trio, QUO VADIS.

Back in 1994 I used my connections in radio to bring Joe’s band, Quo Vadis, for a concert in my hometown in Baia Mare. Listen Joe’s current band, Joe Gaspar Band, in today’s show.


Quo Vadis, Joe’s band back in the 1990s in Romania. This was live in Timisoara in the summer of 1994. Listen to Joe’s current band in today’s show.
