FOG Blues & Brass Band is based in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. Founded in 2015, Fog consists of Hilliard Walter (vocals), Bobby Becker (keyboards), Al Hosack (bass), Pat Furlong (drums), Dan Jancar (saxophones) and Tim Palser (guitars).
Bobby Becker was a founding member of the late 60’s band Yukon, produced by The Funk Brothers for the Sussex label.Al Hosack, native of London, Ontario was formerly of the CASBY award-winning band, Michaele Jordana and the Poles.
Working with Juno-award winning Engineer/Producer John ‘Beetle’ Bailey, they were able to craft an energetic, horn-infused album. FOG also enlisted famed writer / performer Don Breithaupt (Monkey House, Breithaupt Brothers) to do the horn arrangements. The end result, with a nod to the genre’s Pioneers, is a classic Blues / R&B infused sound!
Fog’s debut CD “Into The Fog” has seen every track played on radio stations around the world. From CBC Radio 1 “Saturday Night Blues” (Holger Peterson) “The Morning Edition” (Craig Norris) to rootstime.be in Belgium and quite a few radio stations in between!
FOG were a crowd pleaser at the TD Kitchener Blues Festival in 2019! Hitting the festival circuit as an 8 piece band, they are a powerhouse Live! With a powerful lead vocalist (Hilliard Walter) at the helm, very strong soloists, (Palser, Becker and Jancar) tight rhythm section (Hosack and Furlong) FOG thrills fans at every performance. All This and a horn section! They are not to be missed.
