Andre Dicaire – Guitar, Vocals, Banjo, Ukelele and Cowbell

Andre_DicaireAndre is simply confused. French Canadian, born in Ontario, lived in Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and back to Quebec for college, where he met his love, Nancy. She liked his quirky music sense and he loved her chocolate chip cookies. Andre started singing in a high school rock band in ’76, learned the guitar and went on to play coffee houses and variety shows at the University of New Brunswick and Vanier College in Montreal.

Andre got a real job in 86, got married and had two wonderful kids and raised his own drummer from scratch. He moved to Austin, Texas in 1998 where the self proclaimed live music capital of the world rekindled his musical interests. Looking for the right group of musicians (and a drummer) to play with, he found “The Pigs” in Calgary and promptly moved back to Canada to play out his Rock n’ Roll dreams.
