Bio

Edgy and honest rock, the Whethermen features Pat Haberl on lead vocals and guitar, Andre Beaulieu on bass and backing vocals and Gord Rogers on drums. Pat H and Gord have played together since high school and Andre joined more recently.  The band philosophy and name relate to the idea of Whether or Not.  To Be or Not To Be.  And if To Be, what comes with that.  The responsibility and need to raise awareness of the moment in the moment.    
The Whethermen's first cd "Evolver" (released under the band's former name "Monkeys With Guns") was given positive reviews. Nyrock called their sound kind of college-frat rock stuff, more rocking than Dave Matthews, but not as rough as Pearl Jam. Author Bobby Borg said that Choruses are catchy, over all the music is fun. You have a refreshing sound; something needed back on the radio. Stig Wennevold, a Senior Engineer with FEIDE in Denmark said that "it (Evolver) is the sort of solid quality album that grows on you, and I suspect it will keep finding its way back into my player many years from now".   Livid Sky off of Evolver was licensed for use in the movie Killer Bees which is now available for rental at most national chain DVD rental outlets. Fade to Black, also off of Evolver, was licensed for use in the FOX TV production Higher Ground which was distributed world wide. The second cd is now being distributed by the band at its regular gigs and is getting great reviews.   The Third cd is currently being recorded and bed tracks are completed.  It will be released in September 2015.   
The band plays weekly in Vancouver and once annually the members of the band link up with a keyboard player and several horn players to play a popular charity gig at the Commodore Ballroom to a sold out crowd of over 1000 people.
