Bob ( Félix) Pelletier- 8:00 PM
Bob has been nurturing a lifelong obsession with music, learning to play guitar at 13 and starting his first band in Kapuskasing, Ontario at 17. Through the years, he has played lead guitar in a number of groups and genres throughout Eastern Canada, mostly performing cover material. For the last decade, he has been quietly honing his songwriting craftsmanship and perfecting the art recording in his home studio. His songs, as his musical influences, are diverse in style, and lyrically reflective of his experience and view of the world. While he continues to compose new material, he has set a special goal of translating a significant number of his songs to French, his first language, in 2018.
