Lonely Hearts Club Band
The Group came together in March of 2008 as a recording project for Singer and Bassist John Chiasson bringing together the finest professional musicians in Atlantic Canada.
Silvio Pupo - Piano
Jamie Robinson - Guitar
Eric Landry – Trombone
Rob Crowell – Sax
Dave Burton – Drums
John Chiasson – Bass and Vocals
This would be the 3rd CD project for John Chiasson, and a great follow-up to the tradition of timeless Standards and wonderful new original material that he has brought to life in his recordings. The Classic music of the Beatles may well become the most remembered music of the 20th century. “The Lonely Hearts Club Jazz Band” puts a new spin on these timeless classics. Fresh new arrangements and musical styles from around the globe have come together to present these songs in new and exciting ways. Each musician brings his own unique talents to create this stimulating tapestry of sound. Eric Landry with his wonderful warm tone, Rob Crowell with his harmonic mastery, Jamie Robinson with his flawless instrumental execution, Dave Burton with his worldly fusion of rhythms, Silvio Pupo with his Deep Cuban roots, and John Chiasson with his cohesive bass lines and velvet toned vocals. In June of 2009, John Chiasson’s Lonely Hearts Club Jazz Band released their premier CD at the 4th Maritime Beatle Event in Halifax. They also participated at the Jazzeast Festival with a few shows including the main stage festival tent. Due to the tremendous response to the live events, John has been quite busy fulfilling requests for both new and return engagements for the group.
