The name: “The Verites” , Apparently it comes from “Cinéma vérité”. Also the name of their highschool band. So”The Verites” were re-born.

How the band started:Gordon and Roy had been jamming together since high school. After a break playing in separate bands, they got back together in early 2004 to form what would become “The Verites”.

They started writing songs together and were soon joined by Gordon’s friend Gabe on Drums. Finally another friend, Rob, bought himself a bass guitar and eventually joined the band to complete the line-up.

Upcoming gigs: “Surfacing” Monday January 10th , The Rosemount
