Thanks for visiting our website…
MIGIZI (Algonquin for Eagle), is a 5-piece act that offer the highest quality renditions of classic rock hits from the 60s, 70s and beyond, with some good ole rocking country tunes thrown in the mix. Some of our favorite artists include The Eagles, The Stones, The Beatles, John Mellencamp, Johnny Cash, Bruce Springsteen, Bryan Adams – and that is just the tip of the iceberg.
Game of Thrones had just begun, Apple lost their founder and a Royal wedding had everyone enamored. 2011 was also the year Peter Masson embarked on starting up MIGIZI. A rock band with a throwback to the ’80s sound, but after several months things hit a wall and Peter had to walk away. He took a few months to rejuvenate his musical plans and with Rick Sabourin, they started anew with Marc Leclair, Petyo Penev, and Paul Gould. A group of men in our 50’s (sans Paul who’s 30 years their junior) who just love to rock, MIGIZI was back in action come March 2012. Fast forward to today and we have released our debut single, “It Feels Alright” with a new album hopefully out by the end of Summer 2018.
Inspired by fellow Canadian artist Bryan Adams for the beauty of his simplicity, as well as The Eagles as Peter has been a lifelong fan. A reason we have two lead guitars is due to the influence of The Eagles. With that, along with our harmonious additions, we bring a vibrant energy to our performances – which have been abundant. MIGIZI has played over 85 shows in the Ottawa area from bars to fairs and everywhere in between, including opening for 80’s powerhouse Prism. Some of those shows have included our latest single “It Feels Alright” which Peter says, “It was a collaborative effort from all of us to just throw song riffs and rhythm down and I came up with the lyrics pretty quickly for this one. Not a whole lot of meaning behind it just wanted something with some punch and that would be a little catchy with the people listening to it. We have had some great feedback so far.”
Not only do we have a single that’s killing it, but we also have been featured in Danielle Magazine, (see our News page for link to the article) as well as on Aboriginal CKCU Radio 93.7FM. MIGIZI also qualified for the Canadian Finals music competition through Landmark Entertainment. Right now we are focusing on pushing out an album in summer 2018.
Our professional and friendly attitude, and our passion for delivering the biggest and best hits from a classic era, all make MIGIZI your first choice when booking a classic rock cover band for your next event. MIGIZI is considered high energy, with awesome tunes, guaranteed to rock the house.
This band is perfect for any type of event such as bar venues, weddings, private parties, fairs, holiday parties like Halloween, Christmas or New Years… anywhere you want great music to get the crowd up dancing and having a great time.
