The Band

The Confusionaires are a high-energy rockabilly trio fronted by one of the best guitar players in Edmonton, AB… and – interestingly enough, backed by one of the best bass players and one of the best drummers.

Fat Dave Johnston’s distinctive guitar sound coupled with his keen gift for songwriting is ultimately what attracted the bass monster Jayson Aschenmeier (read: Aschenmonster), and Fat Dave’s penchant for musical chaos is what first attracted drumming phenom Adam Stark to complete the trio.

The ‘catch’ when it comes to trios is that everyone has to be at the top of their game when it comes to the music and the live energy, and The Confusionaires are an embodiment of that.

Keep an eye out for this undeniable traditional rock & roll experience.

… but don’t take our word for it…

“I have a very distinct definition of what rock & roll is, and Fat Dave’s music and approach is exactly that.” – Joe Nolan, Six-Shooter Records artist.

“I too have done this same gig many times over many years – you sound great and you’re working it like a pro.” – Dove Brown, Jr. Gone Wild

“I had a blast. Seriously, we have to do more shows with you (Dave) and Jayson.” – Jimbo Wallace, The Reverend Horton Heat.
