Our Story

Not Ottawa is comprised of six musicians from the small town of Nottawa located just south of Collingwood on beautiful Georgian Bay.  We're all experienced in life, and we have life long experience in music.    We got together by chance in 2012 and had our first performance at the Collingwood Battle of the Bands where we placed second.  After that, the gig offers came rolling in and we have been busy playing at area clubs, events and fundraisers ever since.

Our music is rooted in blues, rock and swing. We have developed a repertoire of 60 cover tunes and tailor our show selections according to the events we play.  We also mix in a few originals......"Blue for You", "Small Town Simple", "Copper Kettle Shuffle" and "The Money's All Gone".  Check out the Music tab of the site for recordings.

When we play, we play with energy and have fun........and that energy is shared by those we are lucky enough to play for!!!  Check out our upcoming events, we hope to see you at one of them soon.
