Wednesday September 11th 6:30pm-9:00pm: The  Fake McCoys

Based in Ottawa Ontario The Fake McCoys bring a relaxed, fun and personal style of musical entertainment.

We are an established fully equipped light rock band trio. We play at many of the pubs in and around Ottawa and bring a mix of popular top 40 songs from 50’s to present with a few surprises for good measure. We pride ourselves on really interacting with our audience and creating a memorable and fun evening for everyone. Another thing that makes us different from most bands is our 3 part harmonies and LOW volume which suits us best for pubs where people can still enjoy conversation while listening to music. We use a smaller stage as our drummer(percussionist) does not use a drumkit. A small wood box called a cajon is all he needs.
Mike Murphy  – Vocals, Guitar, Mandolin, Harmonica

Born in Verdun Que several years ago. Relocating to Ottawa in 1981. Mike started dabbling with guitar at age 13 but only ever played as a hobby. It wasn’t until a serious injury that left him unable to walk for a number of months that he started to play more. It was also when he started to sing. In 2006 Mike formed a few basement bands, out of that a successful duo called Mike n’ Marty was born. When Marty Vallieres was unable to continue Mike added a few more guys to create The Fake McCoys. Music humbles me and I am honored every time I get to play for someone

Rob Lauzon  – Vocals, Cajon, Percussion

Rob is a happy boy. Born in a hospital somewhere, I packed up and moved to Ottawa at 2 years old and grew up here. Played drums in a rock band through my teens and twenties, then got kidknapped, tied up, taken away, and held for ransom. Broke free a couple of years ago and got right back at rockin’. Thoroughly enjoying my role of “Percussion Specialist” with The Fake McCoys. Ok…I made that up…I don’t specialize in anything…I am just the cajon player…I slappa da box

Sheldon DeCoste  – Vocals, Bass Guitar

The band’s token Maritimer, Sheldon dabbled with the bass a bit in high school, mainly because some family and friends had a band and “someone“ had to play bass. After deciding not to attend Berklee College of Music, he instead studied Business and I.T. in Nova Scotia and then relocated to Ottawa, where he started a career/family. Only in 2007 did he get the bug to pick up the bass again. This time around, he decided to learn to play it properly. Although we’re still waiting for that to happen, Sheldon does provide the Fake McCoys’ low end, both musically and vocally.
