About WJRM

WJRM ….. playing the favourites From the ashes of veteran Hamilton party rockers Banned from Heaven comes WJRM,a group committed to laying down great rootsy dance grooves and singingout everyone’s favourite party tunes.

The band’s playlist draws from a wide range of genres and includes classics from the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, CCR, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Van Morrison, The Band, Nick Lowe, Elvis Costello, Radiohead and even the Monkees.

Wayne Krawchuck – ­lead vocals, guitar–Wayne’s golden voice has been pleasing music fans in the area for 30 plus years. With several original albums to his credit Wayne has worn both the entertainer hat and the artist toque throughout his storied career. Also, as a member of local blues outfit Cootes Paradise,his Dundas roots can’t be hidden.

Joe Gravina -­ drums vocals–Joe has been playing drums every week for the last 30years. The busiest man in show business, he usually juggles 2 or 3 bands along with running his hair salon and being just a great guy.Ron Cole -­ keyboards, accordion, vocals-­“Jelly Roll” Cole’s piano and accordion stylings are legendary in these parts as is his iconic pork-­pie hat. A mentor to thousands of inspired music students over the years, and the father of singing sensation Laura Cole, Ron was an NHL scout in a previous life.

Mike Northcott -­ lead vocals, bass-­Mick (as his rock’n’roll friends call him) has been singing and playing music professionally since he was 18. Originally a drummer, he moved out front where his passionate vocal wailing’s could be better heard above the din of his mediocre drumming. Mick’s day job producing music for children’s cartoons only reinforces his inability to grow up. Combined, the quartet comprises over a century of music entertainment experience!

We love to sing, we love to play, and we love to get you dancing!
