NORTH OF 49 BIO 

The North of 49 band was conceived at the end of 2004 by Dan McVeigh who felt a need to find another avenue to get his songs heard by a larger audience in bigger clubs and festivals throughout Canada. Dan called on several other fine musicians who are also songwriters to form a band that could not only write great songs but also entertain an audience with a highly energetic mix of today’s country music hits, classic rock gems and original music.  

The band features Dan McVeigh on keyboards, acoustic guitar and lead & background vocals,  Russell Edward Williams on guitars,  lead & background vocals, Cary Marks on bass guitar, background vocals, Jim Bennett on drums and Cathy McVeigh on background vocals.

North of 49 is comprised of veteran musicians who have been performing for many years.

He has recorded two albums and recently went #1 on “The Country Edge” (Canada’s top internet country station) with his single “You Are All I Dream Of”. He has won several songwriting awards and was nominated at the Ontario Country Music Awards for future country star of the year. Guitarist/Soundman Russell Edward Williams has toured the world with artists Jane Siberry, The Reggae Cowboys, Chris deBurgh, Dutch Mason and many others. Cary Marks has played bass and energized crowds all over the GTA with many of the top bands in the area.
