In the fall of 2009, TBWNIS (still as a 4-piece) decided to play a couple of gigs with an expanded line up. Invitations were sent out to several friends who had previous experience in improvised musical settings. 3 shows in total over a 5 month period featured 9 players, the last of which was this show at the Dominion Tavern. This was a headlining gig and a benefit for one of Ottawa’s 3 community radio stations – CHUO-FM. Typically, as with the 2 previous shows, the group more than filled the stage and, in fact, several members literally played “in” the audience. The joint was packed and it was a cosmic experience, never to be repeated again!”
The Band Whose Name Is A Symbol on this night were John Westhaver, Mark McIntyre, Bill Guerrero, Nathaniel Hurlow, Dave Reford, Jan Lis, Eric Larock and Will Desjardins. Sound recording by the late Mark Valcour.
