Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Not Ottawa band!  If you like Classic Rock, Blues, R&B and having loads of fun, then you are in the right place.  We are based in the Southern Georgian Bay area of Ontario, Canada in the beautiful small town of Nottawa and are ready to play for you at many great venues in the area.  We specialize in a danceable mix of music, done our way.  We do tunes ranging from Muddy Waters and the Allman Brothers to the Tragically Hip with some Van Morrison and the Beatles making an appearance along the way.  Mixed in are some of our own compositions.  Come to an event soon and rock to the "Notown Sound"!
