When you combine two performing veterans who have great voices and a shared love of simplified, tuneful acoustic pop-folk-rock from the '50's, '60's, and '70's, you get David Love and Brian LeBlanc. No drum machines, fog machines or Tragically Hip songs – just acoustic pop as it was meant to be heard: two voices – two guitars. The way that John and Paul, Phil and Don, Paul and Art, Chad and Jeremy and Peter and Gordon did it.
David is a 16-year member of one of Toronto's most popular bands, The Carpet Frogs, and has been a member of The Burton Cummings Band since 1998.
In 2005, David, along with the rest of The Carpet Frogs, became The Bachman Cummings Band accompanying Randy Bachman and Burton Cummings on a 17 city national tour, a CBC special, a DVD, and the first new album from Randy and Burton in almost 40 years, Jukebox on Sony/BMG.
David also performed on Burton Cummings' first solo album in 15 years, Above the Ground, released November 2008 on Sony/BMG.
Brian is a veteran of the Canadian rock scene in the early 1970's having been a member of bands like FESTIVAL, ELEANOR FOX with Hamilton–born guitar session star Bill Dillon, RAIN with Canadian guitar stalwart Bernie LaBarge, with whom he had a Canadian Top 10 hit on London Records, FLYING CIRCUS ("Old Enough (For Breaking My Heart)", Capitol Records Top 10), CRAIG RHUNKE ("Summer Girl", Canadian Top 10). Brian was also half of LEBLANC, a very successful duo with Pat Bourke (RHINEGOLD, GOWAN) as well as having been a 14-year member of CLASS OF '59, one of the hardest working showbands in southern and central Ontario.
Love & LeBlanc use Gibson, Larrivee, and Martin brand guitars as well as the stunning new technology from Fishman Aura utilizing the Fishman Solo Amps for the smoothest, most natural sounding, and unobtrusive sound
"You guys had a fantastic selection of music, all of which I simply adored. I even listened closely to the guitar solo in Till There Was You, and....it was right on the money. I knew every song, and I was delighted with the way they came out. The vocals did sound dry though. Needed just a little bit of echo or reverb. However, that's just my opinion. The harmony was excellent. Your voices really do complement each other very well. The whole thing was very pleasing to the ear. The individual volumes were also controlled very wisely and the obvious end product was nothing short of professionalism. As a former musician myself, I can tell how much work went into each song. I can honestly tell you that your passion for music really does come through. Keep up the good work."

"David and Brian played for us at an outdoor party on the September long weekend. They were terrific!! For 2 hours everyone sat around and listened to them play. Looking around you could tell people were enjoying themselves, singing along, swaying to the music, bringing back memories. Thanks for making the party memorable for us and all our guests."

"David & Brian provided the entertainment for a 50th birthday party held at my home which was very much enjoyed by all our guests. When the birthday boy arrived, he thought we were playing a CD and was surprised to see our live entertainment!
Thanks to you both for a GREAT evening!"
