Who We Are
The Cabaret Quicksand was formed by Craig Rewbury in 2016 as a recording project of his songs. He wanted to do something different and instead of having one band record the material, he wanted to use musicians/friends/family that had a connection to him from the past and present, whether it was from playing/recording or simply admiring. It was evident from the beginning that Richard Allen Brown was going to play all of the drums/percussion since these two have spent the last 13 years providing the Rhythm section for the popular Niagara Cover band Jonesy. It just made sense to have this tight duo lay down the foundation for this record.
Craig has called on some other heavy weights for this project including his band members in Jonesy, Brad Battle, Jesse Stull, Gary Borden, Marc Ganetakos, Phil Wellman, Mike Palermo and John Bowman to name a few. Each of these talented players brings a unique element and style to Craig’s songs which are generally about past experiences, relationships with people and world issues. The sounds range from Rock, Pop, Blues and even Country. The Cabaret Quicksand has quickly morphed into a force to be reckoned with since the release of its first single “Trepidation” in April 2017 with a video that can be seen on You Tube.
As the warm weather approaches in Southern Ontario, The Cabaret Quicksand is finishing up its debut release “The Company You Keep” and plans to get it out to you during winter of 2018 via BS Live Rocks Records. The project is being recorded in analog with bed tracks captured “live off the floor” and will be able to be spun on your turn tables if you choose. “I wanted to make a record of my songs with good mates and amazing players while keeping things fun and light”. Craig has been able to accomplish this and much more including a variety of sounds that will guarantee to kick you in the teeth at times and draw you in through melodic hooks and riffs. Keep your eyes open for the album “The Company You Keep” by The Cabaret Quicksand this Winter 2018..
