CANADA: HWY 19 at Scarlet Gryffyn in Stratford

On March 24th at 8pm at the Scarlett Gryffyn Pub in Stratford, Canada, HWY 19 will perform for One World Beat 2005 along with Bobbi Lee Justice and the Scepters. HWY 19, a four-member rock band with a solid reputation and a following that keeps on growing, draws from a wide range of talent and experience.

Tina McEwin, on vocals, is equally at home singing heart wrenching ballads and rough and tumble rock 'n' roll. She provides the power, strength, and excitement needed to move an audience. Her experiences on the dinner circuit, on TV with the popular "Be A Star" program, and good showing in talent contests has helped her to develop her talents as both singer and song-writer. She has collaborated and published songs with Larry Mercy of the Mercy Brothers, and has recently released her first collection of original material, with a diversity of music ranging from the ballad, "Her Song", to the free-spirited "In Your Dreams".

Tom Gatenby, guitar and backup vocals, has been a part of the music scene since 1972, when he took his first music lessons with the Ontario Conservatory of Music. Despite the formal training, Tom was able to put together a musical style that "fits" into any situation, be it country, folk, or rock. A seasoned performer, Tom has been on stages all over Canada, has recording credits, cutting his own singles in 1983, has performed in productions of Godspell, Jesus Christ Superstar, and toured with recording artist Bob Gill.

Paul Cooper, drums and percussion, provides the percussive drive for the band. Coop has played in the local area for many years and has earned great respect among his musical peers. The Neurotics, Casualty Rockers, and the Legend of Texas Doom are part of his performing past. In 1992, the latter released a cassette featuring their original material. Coop's performing is not confined to the musical stage. He is a founding member of the Epiphany Theater Company, and performed the lead role in "Fool For Love" by Sam Shepard, at the Grand Theater in London. He also appeared in the Stratford Festival production of Othello in 1989.

Dave "Harv" Harwood-Bass is the perfect match for HWY 19's rhythm section. He began his career out of high school playing in a band called "Overload", and--with his roots firmly planted in rock 'n' roll--Dave then joined the well-known and critically acclaimed, "Cream Cheeze Goodtime Band." Dave has appeared on both the Tommy Hunter and Ronnie Prophet country music shows, as well as recorded two albums with "Cream Cheeze".
