The band had a great return to a sold out Potato Factory in mid January. As per usual the place was packed and the dance floor was hoppin. We managed to squeeze all six of us in to the tiny stages and Ted (Harp) and Dave ( Sax) ripped out some awesome solos to wow the crowd. On the heels of that night, we have a number of shows coming up in February and March including our first visit to the Harbour Street Fish Bar on Friday, February 9. Check out the events section for more details.
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"!
