Biography

Diversity Brings on Name Change

Originally named Repeat Offenders, the band formed in late 2001 from the ashes of several popular local bands including...Doublecross, Alibi, Sound F/X and Psycho Billy.

With a recent line-up change and the addition of more varied music, our eclectic song list is the result of each band member’s input. Our diverse song list is a solid blend of everything from hard driving rock tunes to subtle slow songs. We guarantee an evening of something for everyone! The band will take you on a journey with some of the best songs ever written, and perform some of their own originals as well.

Our influences range from iconic bands like Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Steve Miller, AeroSmith, U2, Hard Rock and Hair Bands like, Ac/Dc, Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, Guns & Roses, New Wave and Punk, such as Billy Idol, Simple Minds, up to present day artists such as, Tool, Audio Slave!

A strong and energetic performance is on tap when you see the band live. Years of playing experience come through with strong vocals, a solid rhythm and guitar work that is ”nasty when it needs to be!” The members form a solid unit that can truly fill a dance floor at the drop of a hat.

Knowing that “if the band has fun, the crowd will follow,” a night of fun and good rockin’ music is in store for anyone who walks through the door.

Come in, bring your friends, check us out...And we’ll see ya from the stage

Lyrics

Don't Cry For Me

Written By: Paul Martin


Baby packed her bags and she rented a van,
She had to move on to the promised land.
I told you that this time would come.
Broken and lonely my mind is just numb

CHORUS

Baby’s gotta fly, gonna fly free.
Gonna soar through the clouds,
and over the seas,
She’s gonna fly, gonna fly free
She said, Don’t you cry
Don’t you cry for me.

Carleton County Blues

Written By: Culbert/Peabody (Escape)

Verse 1:

Let’s go for a bumble - it was the last thing that I heard
Just another beer and the rest is a blur
I watched the game on the TV and I stared off into space
It’s just another day here in the same . old . place

Chorus:

I don’t like money, I don’t like the fame
It’s getting colder but I can’t complain
We’ll drive the loop for the third time tonight
We’ll go out drinkin’ and look for a fight

Verse 2:

We’ll go down river, driftin’ past the fiddleheads
Don’t know where we’re going, don’t matter, I’ve got my friends
We worked all day in the ‘tater fields, makin’ money off the land
We’ll do the same thing next year, it’s all part of the plan

Repeat Chorus: (x2)
