Hey, thanks for stopping in to
The website has changed around a bit so if you're a return visitor,
take the time to take a quick peak around. The entire listing of
be it for Semi Tone, Mono Tone,
Tone Deaf or Sugar Dali,
is all located on the Show Listings page.
Just trying to make things easy for everyone.
Let's see if we can answer all the burning questions of the day:
Who, or what, is Semi Tone?
Semi Tone (and Mono Tone) is a spin-off of Tone Deaf.
It actually started as Mono Tone, Mark's solo project. Just him, an acoustic guitar, a microphone and a mitt
full of harmonicas. Later, in late 2005, Adam joined the fold and Semi Tone was born, adding bass guitar and
extra vocals. In 2010 it morphed again, switching bass out for percussion (our boy Stan!). And that's how it
stands today, a great acoustic/percussion duo, perfect for pub, patio or what have you. And Mark still does
lots of the Mono Tone thing too.
What kinda of music do they play?
Because they are directly related to Tone Deaf,
you can be sure to hear lots of the Classic Rock that those boys are known for. Throw into the mix a bevy of
other tunes, from America to Zevon (got that A to Z thing in!), from the late '60 to, well, somewhere close to
today, and you have your mix. They'll try anything...whether they know it or not! Usually not.
Where could we expect to see them?
How about, everywhere! The cool thing about
Tone Deaf (Canada)
and all it's configurations, is they have an ideal set up for any situation...any size room.
You got 1, 2 and 3 piece acoustic set ups and 3 and 4 piece electric set ups. Male and/or female vocals.
We can even supply classical guitar for weddings and such. If you click on
Booking there is a bit of a description of the different set-ups offered.
The best way to experience a Semi Tone show is to see one. Sure, we could add a snippet of a live performance
but that is never gonna tell the whole story. Even a picture can't tell you how handsome these boys really are!
You just gotta see for yourself. Oh, and they are handsome! And talented...well, they are handsome!
Just click on Show Listings to see where they are playing.
What else have you got?
If you want a wee introduction to the boys in Semi Tone, and the rest of the Tone Deaf (Canada)
crew, just click on The Band. Or, to get a taste of would you could hear at any one

well, talent, not all bands listed are available with all our configurations.) Being that the name of our game is
entertainment, we have lots of other things available here to keep you amused. To find out what we are up to and
what we are finding amusing at the time, stop in at our Whas Up page.

Thanks for stopping in and we hope to see you out at a show soon. Cheers!
