About the band:
The Runaway Thieves are a Bar/Cover/Party band largely covering 70/80/90's blues, rock, R&B, pop material which have stated gigging bars with a mandate to incorporate cocktail gatherings, cafes patios, restaurants, functions, etc.
We're "a fun bunch" 30's & 40 somethings or for lack of a better term, we get it; kids, family, hectic work schedules, last min commitments, we're not looking to make a career of it.

- rhythm guitar versed and capable, added plus if you play keyboard and vocals, not mandatory.
- ability to commit rough 2-3 hrs a week rehearsal (presently at the-sound.ca Hwy 7) area.
- Should go without saying (you own/have your gear)
