St. Vital musicians making some noise in L.A.

  • Print

Two St. Vital musicians, Patrick Hansen and Dana Jerlo, are making their mark on the music scene. Their band, The Treble has traveled to Los Angeles two times in the last month to play shows. Hansen plays bass while Jerlo takes care of percussion on drums. Mark Brusegard is on vocals, Colin McTavish plays piano, and Graeme Woods plays guitar.


The band describes their music as pop/rock/folk with a sound similar to that of The Fray. The band is inspired by their hometown of Winnipeg. They say the city has provided lyrical and musical inspiration and the motivation to grow and pursue bigger dreams. They’ve received play on several local radio stations. Their first E.P., Shaking Hands and Taking Names was named "one of my favourite releases of the year," by HOT 103’s Young Mike.


The Treble has also used their musical abilities to give back. They recently performed 24 shows in 24 hours to raise funds for the Canadian Red Cross to help with relief efforts in the Horn of Africa.


This summer the band will play Countryfest, Canada Day on Osborne, and the Take Me To The Pilot CD Release on June 15.


They leave for their eastern U.S./Canada tour on July 13. They will be playing shows in Chicago, New York, Moncton and Charlottetown.


The Treble has also started work on a new full-length record that is set to drop later in the year. The record would be the band’s first full-length release.


Keep up to date with the band on Facebook at facebook.com/thetreble and on Twitter at @TheTrebleBand.
