MEET THE BAND
Achtung, baby! Andreas is a guitar player that deserves some attention. Hailing from Germany, he spent two years as a session player in LA. He can also be heard on numerous TV and movie soundtracks, and has composed music for many TV shows including The Oprah Winfrey Show, Frontline, National Geographic, Arctic Air, and Hail Mary. He has performed on hundreds of albums, making him one of the most-recorded guitarists in Canada.
Rodger is both lead vocalist for Stock Joker and a responsible capitalist. He has four solo albums under his belt which received airplay across Canada and in Australia and Europe. This Nashville-trained performer has also played live on TV stations in Vancouver and Winnipeg. A short stint at the LA Comedy School helped hone the joker in him.
Gord gets around. In a good way! He has composed and produced music for television, and produced, arranged and played on over 100 CDs. He’s had the privilege of recording with artists such as Alex Lifeson (Rush), Rik Emmett (Triumph), Jeff Healey and Shania Twain. Gord has also created, produced and played in shows for Canadian Peacekeeping Forces Tours in Israel, Cyprus, Egypt, Germany, Bosnia, Croatia, France, Britain and northern Canada, and has played in numerous Broadway musicals including Miss Saigon, Patsy, and Grease. He has performed on hundreds of albums, making him one of the most-recorded guitarists in Canada.
Phil’s music background is no joking matter. He’s been a studio drummer for 24 years, and a first call session player and online session drummer for the past decade.
