Quite frankly the band name makes us and others laugh. We care about the music and the performance of that music. Our goal is to entertain your audience. The name we feel is funny and something you and your clients will remember for years to come.
There are a few other bands around the globe using this name too and for us it is all in fun.
As The Rubber Band moves through the summer, we wanted everyone to know what a fantastic year we have had despite all the trials and tribulations life brings. We look forward to a happy and healthy 2019/2020 with all of you! Thank you to our families, friends, and fans for supporting live music!. The Rubber Band, Featuring the Music of The Tragically Hip!

The Rubber Band, Featuring The Music of The Tragically Hip
On August 20th, 2016 the band got together with some friends to watch the last Tragically Hip concert. Our band members like the rest of Canada watched emotionally as the final song played out, Ahead By A Century. Terry said "We should do some more Hip".
From there the idea snowballed into a tribute to Gord Downie who passed away October 17th, 2017.
Wait! There are still 4 remaining members in The Tragically Hip. Rob Baker, Gord Sinclair, Johnny Fay &, Paul Langlois. Therefore our band is actually "Featuring The Music of The Tragically Hip" and we do this for Rob Baker, Gord Sinclair, Johnny Fay, Paul Langlois, and of course Gord Downie. This is for ALL OF YOU!

The Rubber Band delivers an authentic, polished classic rock sound. The rhythm section comprised of Jean Chiquette (bass) , and Colin (BAM BAM) Graham (drums) have been bringing music to people across Canada and the United States in various different iterations for over 36 years.
With the introduction of Terry Shipp (lead vocals, and, guitar) a new life long friendship and musical relationship was born. Terry is a passionate singer, songwriter and guitar player that rounds out this band perfectly.
Just recently Layne Syvertsen joined The Rubber Band as our new 4th member and bring a new passion and fire to the stage with his amazing playing ability. We are excited with the addition of Layne to the band.
