45north band is a 6 piece - sax, trumpet, keys, guitar, bass, drums - that specializes in great Canadian music by Canadian artists and includes tunes from the 1960's to today. Our music is great for dances, parties and concerts. We have lots of great tunes including pop, rock, jazz, folk, reggae, Latin and funk to provide lots of variety.

The small groups - trio/quartet - have specialized in and performed live music for wedding receptions, corporate events and private parties for many years. My groups have also performed at the Ottawa Jazz Festival several times over the past few years. I also have a number of original tunes that were released in CD and digital format in October 2014 at our concert at Merrickville's Jazz Fest. There is lots more info on my personal web site as well.

My bands have been booked for many events in the Ottawa area over the past few years. We can provide the live music your event requires from quiet background music for cocktails and dinner to energetic dance tunes for a night of high energy fun. From the jazz trio or quartet to a 6-piece dance band playing jazz, rock, funk, pop, Latin, Celtic and more, I have the right band and the best live music for your event. We are very experienced playing for wedding receptions, corporate functions, galas, festivals and private parties. Most of our bookings are private functions that I normally do not post on the gig listing here.

My fees are very competitive and I am happy to provide a quote for your event and work within your budget if possible.

EAST SIDE JAZZ TRIO/QUARTET features Ralph Hopper on saxes along with piano or guitar with bass and drums.

In addition to a number of original tunes, the repertoire is based on jazz standards thus there will be many recognizable and enjoyable melodies during any performance. For jazz we focus on a mainstream style with the emphasis on melody and rhythm and, always danceable.

The trio can be expanded to both a quartet or quintet if required with the addition of drums and/or trumpet/trombone and/or a female vocalist. This expanded version of the band is also excellent for dances where larger bands might be too big and too loud and too expensive.

The trio and quartet have performed for public and private events and at many different venues throughout the Ottawa area and Eastern Ontario. East Side Quartet performed at the Ottawa Jazz Festival in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 and Merrickville's Jazz Fest in 2014 and plays occasional club dates.

The band was certainly dedicated to our event ... they showed up in the middle of a snow storm, when several of our guests did not!
