Since meeting in 2003, Vanessa Rodrigues (Montreal) and Chris Gale (Toronto) have been collaborating, recording and touring across Canada.
With the addition of Mike Rud (Montreal) and Davide DiRenzo (Toronto), a serious collective was formed with a live CD being the product of their intense musical bond (Gale/Rodrigues Group Live at the Rex - CGVR01; 2007). You are now holding in your hands, or perhaps viewing on your screen, the next chapter of this group's continuing creative efforts.
We are Buckaloose. Welcome. Enjoy.
