With their roots firmly planted in early rock and roll and R&B, the members of The Classics were all part of the busy teen and nightclub scene, entertaining Canadian audiences as early as 1959.

Today, these highly skilled musicians and singers send the energy off the stage at clubs, school gymnasiums, and beach pavilions, just like in the old days when the music was still brand new. Over the years The Classics have shared the stage with such internationally acclaimed artists as: The Guess Who, Roy Orbison, Tommy Banks, Bobby Curtola, The Fireballs, P.J.

In 1998, members of the band appeared on stage with over fifty members of The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra for two sold-out nights of Rhythm and Blues at Edmontons world-class Winspear Centre.Few months later at another sold-out performance in the Jack Singer Concert Hall with The Calgary Philharmonic. On both occasions, the band had the patrons dancing in the aisles.
They re-visited the Winspear Centre for another successful evening with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra in the summer of 2004. One only needs to catch this group playing for hundreds of fans at an open-air venue such as the band-shell in Edmontons Hawrelak Park or Winston Churchill Square during The Taste of Edmonton to realize that the bands performance has an irresistible appeal to audiences of all ages and folks from all musical backgrounds.
Over the years the boys have opened for, or shared the stage with internationally acclaimed artists such as Tommy Banks, Bobby Curtola, The Fireballs, The Guess Who, Roy Orbison, P.J. Perry, The Pozo Seco Singers (Don Williams), and David Clayton Thomas (later of Blood, Sweat and Tears) to name but a few.
In addition to having years of experience playing for live audiences, each individual band member is a seasoned radio/television performer and studio musician.
Today, after closing fifty years, the fire is still there and the musicianship has only gotten better. The material these gentlemen play is rock and roll and rhythm and blues, and they make the energy roll off todays stages just like it did in the clubs, the school gymnasiums and the beach halls when rock and roll was new.
