FOR OUR 17TH EDITION WE HAVE CHOSEN THESE ORGANIZATIONS :
In early 1978, after having spent 9 years in Toronto where he applied his singing, bass playing and song writing skills to many musical projects (recordings with Chimo, Motherlode, New city Jam Band, Studebaker Hawk and Southcote, concerts opening for Janis Joplin, Mountain, Peter Gabriel, Taj Mahal, Traffic and Electric Light Orchestra just to name a few) Breen headed East to Montreal where he joined the legendary French language blues/rock group Offenbach. This adventure was to last the better part of 3 decades. Along the way, Breen participated in Gerry Boulet’s immensely successful solo project, as well as releasing three albums under his own name and touring with Celine Dion’s ‘Incognito’ tour.
From 2007 to 2011, he joined April Wine as they criss-crossed North America. More recently Breen continues to perform regularly with his many musical friends including Martin Deschamps, Jerry Mercer, BSSR (Rej E Lachance, Jeff Smallwood, Bob St-Laurent) and Undercover Legends of Rock. And he still loves getting out to crank out rock and blues with his own group.
