I started this band in spring of 2010, we have had some changes along the way, but our love for music and playing for crowds has not changed.

Please check back periodically for updates.

Frame - Singer

 

I am the founder of the band... I have played in several bands  back in High School, including a rock band. I have also sung in  the choir at church for many, many years. My biggest thing that stands out is when I was chosen to sing in the PAPAL choir when Pope John Paul II came to Ottawa and held mass at Tunney's Pasture. It was an honor to sing in that choir, and to be seated right behind him.

Influences include Elvis, The Eagles, Johnny Cash, Lionel Ritchie

Frame - Bass Guitar

 

Music has been a life long passion, I have played in several  bands , sometimes as a frontman performing some of my own  originals. I took a few years off from playing live to concentrate mostly on writing and recording at the home studio but I found myself missing the stage. After a short stint as a drummer, I decided to return to my first instrument of choice, bass.

Some of my influences are Sting, Geddy Lee, Flea, The Clash, AC/DC, U2 and Paul Simon, I love Funk, Reggae, Rock, Blues and Country.

Looking forward to having fun on a stage near you. Cheers!

Frame - Drums

 

Since I was a small kid I sang in the school choir and when I become a teenager in one of two biggest choirs in the city, where I often sang solos. When I was 10 my mother bought me a guitar and I started taking lessons. When I was 13 I formed a group and then I found my new love - drums. I started studying classical music incl. chromatic percussion (xylophone and vibraphone). After that I studied singing, musical theory and harmony. When I finished secondary school I started playing in the biggest establishments in Bulgaria and later all over Europe, especially in Germany, Norway, Denmark, Finland and Yugoslavia. Then as a keyboard player I started a duo with a guitarist as I set out to play mainly on ferries.

When I came to Canada (Ottawa) I played in 3 different groups until I found Migizi, where we all seem to have the same love of music and commitment to playing live gigs together.

Frame - Guitar-2

 

Like Schroeder on the guitar, concentrated, loving every minute or maybe it's more like snoopy, basking in the music, eyes closed. Well they've called me Pouch since the day I was born so maybe it's more like snoopy.....Been playing in bands since age 9. I live for the sounds and the goose bumps they give me. But mostly I live to see the crowd having a great time. I've enjoyed playing from basement bands to school bands to classic rock pop band, to stage show band, to festival band, to dance bands and in many rock bands. I enjoy music of all styles as long as it arouses great emotions in us all. I think that's what a band is all about! Oh yah, and then there's playing with Denis DeGrandmont....that's fun too.

Influences include: Triumph, Deep Purple, Rush, Eagles, U2, AC/DC, Pink Floyd, BTO, Bryan Adams, SRV,

Frame - Guitar

 

I fell in love with The Beatles at age 8 and knew all their lyrics by the time I picked up the guitar at age 10. I played a few venues in high school for fun and always dreamt of the day I'd play in a band. My vinyl collection surpasses 200 albums and I take pride in my passion of music. My 7 guitars surround my drum kit and my piano at home and I'm proud to have time for all my music. Thanks for reading, see you at the show!

Influences: The Beatles, Supertramp, Led Zeppelin, Dire Straits, Pink Floyd and Al Stewart
