Tom Lang Gang
Tom Lang Gang plays uptempo rock scientifically designed to keep the dance party going. From classic rock to modern, blues to ballads, these accomplished musicians keep the tempo bright and the sound brawny. Tom Lang’s exciting guitar work has earned him guitar-slinger-for-hire duties touring the US opening for ZZ Top, giant headliner tours in Australia and he has 2 award-winning CDs out. Dennis Ferbey from Katzenjammers on Bass and vocals and Matt Pease, Victoria’s busiest drummer, keep the bottom pumpin’ and the groove thumpin’ respectively.
Shaky Ground is Victoria’s premier party band. Over the past 15 years they’ve entertained over 250,000 guests at virtually every venue in southern Vancouver Island – from Sooke Harbour House to Sidney’s Winspear Centre and everywhere in between…
Their varied repertoire and flexible staging make them appropriate for virtually any event. They specialize in entertaining diverse audiences spanning several generations, and in 15 years they’ve never had a bad review.
Together since the summer of 1995, the Acousticats are made up of two exceptional musicians: April Gislason and Tom Lang. They formed as a result of long standing love of acoustic guitars. Like most musicians, April and Tom started out playing the acoustic guitar. Later they graduated to electric instruments and now have come full circle to the simplicity and elegance of their original instruments. Throughout their careers both have played in a variety of different musical situations which contributes to their wide musical vocabulary.
The combination of their vocal harmonies, the sweet sound of the acoustic guitars and some subtle technical wizardry produces a huge sound.
