George is not only BACKBEAT's frontman, he's the group’s resident musicologist. You wouldn't want to compete against him in a game of music trivia! He eats, breathes and sleeps 60's music and with more than four decades of playing experience, George is at his best when he is on stage. He joined his first band when he was 14 and his mom never forgave him. George has shared the stage with Nigel Olsen of the Elton John Band, Fee Waybill of The Tubes, members of Honeymoon Suite, Esai Morales and Dweezil Zappa. George has also appeared as an extra on episodes of SCTV. Former founding member of Reunion Jack. Source: www.backbeatentertainment.ca
