NEWS ARCHIVE - Apr-Jun 2004

May 28/04 - JA & the Campistas rock Dekcuf - John Allaire tried out a new line-up, the "Campistas" on May 27th, and by all accounts, things worked out great. The pared-down 4-piece ensemble of Tony Dunn on keyboards and sax (The Dunn Project), Jeff Tanguay on bass (The Mercy Miners), Breeze Smith on drums (Bush Pilots)and Allaire playing guitar carried out a full rockin' 45 minute opening set in support of local signed band "Circuit".

The intimate Ottawa club provided great sound and clarity to the band's material, as they bashed through some of Allaire's Town Cryers tunes and a half-dozen or so from his latest release, "Crime and Punishment".

They finished off with a screamin' version of Cheap Trick's "Surrender", leaving the audience wanting more, and well warmed up for Circuit

Apr. 27/04 - "Campistas" to back up Allaire at Dekcuf gig

John Allaire will be mixing things up and trying out a new backing band on May 27th at Cafe Dekcuf in Ottawa. The Campistas are an ensemble of accomplished entertainers from the Ottawa area, but when asked who they were, Allaire was elusive, "You've see them around, no doubt - there's always a few surprises ...". Allaire is not parting ways with "Criminal Intent", however, as a solo artist, he has chosen to explore different line-ups and instrumentation combinations.
