Horn-driven band returns to Mex

Time Well Wasted's horn section separates them from many other bands.

Time Well Wasted, Comox Valley’s only horn-driven dance band, makes a triumphant return to the Mex Pub this Saturday with new songs and newest member, guitar player Jeff Gillespie.

Playing and teaching for more than 20 years Gillespie has performed all over Vancouver Island and the rest of B.C.

“He’s a perfect fit and a really fun addition to the band,” says Juno Award winner and lead singer Sue Medley. “Jeff has a natural musical instinct and is a rock solid player. ”

The addition of Gillespie to Time Well Wasted has also created opportunities to add new songs to their already impressive set list.

“Jeff isn’t just a great guitar player, he’s a talented singer, too,” says bandleader Dave Robertson. “We’re taking full advantage of all his talents.”

Some of the new songs TWW will play Saturday night at the Mex include Carlos Santana’s Smooth, Rare Earth’s Celebrate and Tina Turner’s River Deep, Mountain High.

You can also count on hearing mega hits by the Doobie Brothers, Earth Wind and Fire and Edgar Winter along with unique arrangements of Sue Medley’s hits Maybe The Next Time and Love Thing.

“I believe Time Well Wasted is the best there is,” enthused Roy Tai, Mex Pub owner. “They have a dedicated fan base who love to party and the band puts on a great show every time. I’m excited to have them back at the Mex.”

Doors open at 8 p.m. and tickets are available at the door.
