Road Poets Rock the Skol Pub

Road Poets at the Skol, Gabriola

June 18th saw Gabriola’s own Road Poets ROCK the Skol Pub. It was night where all the pieces came together. That would be three pieces, as the band is now a three piece. Back when Rob was in the band and before Fraser, Road Poets were developing nicely as a three piece. Well game on cause the band ripped through two 50 minute sets. Lots of jamming and solos. A new tune – Memory Lane. A few old ones that haven’t seen the light of day for a year or two – Stale Date, Hurricane and Gabriola.

Here’s a few pics courtesy of Melanie.

All my music is now available on all the streaming platforms! Don’t foget to follow.

Please Follow

It is important to know musicians really only make money when they play live. All the other stuff is essentially ways to promote and keep the fans and audience connected to their music and careers. Times have changed from when an artist sold CDs at record stores, online or at concerts. It’s very important to FOLLOW the artist. This is their connection to you. Each time they upload music you’ll be told about it. It also helps them gain credibilty and more inclusion in the streaming service’s official playlists. When a musican is added to an official playlist it’s almost the same as what getting played on the radio was in the “old days”. Help feed the algorithym.

Streaming Services Don’t Pay Musicians… Much

I also need to mention this about streaming. Most musicians get so little from the streaming services the music is essentially free. Below is a chart showing average payouts. From a high of .01 cents per stream on Amazon to .0001 cents per play on Youtube. An example on Spotify is 1000 streams would make the artist $3. About enough for a beer. Buy your favourite artist a beer when you see them too!

Find Another Way To Support Musicians

Always find another way to pay for your Gabriola music on streaming services. Band Camp allows Artists to sell their music directly to you. (Some Artists will only stream through Band Camp bcause they offer this.) Throw a big tip at the market when they play live. Pay to watch their online concerts. Buy a ticket to see their concert. Go to their website and buy a CD or other merchandise. Spotify allows artists to post a link for you to send money directly to the artist. My link is to fundraise for a new CD.


Most of all listen. Join or find a streaming service and listen. Learn the songs and words. Find your favourite songs. Follow to help my music gain more attention and to for you to know when new music is released. I will play live again. Nothing is greater than the thrill of seeing fans mouthing or singing along to the words of a song you wrote.

See you on the lawn this summer, Dave Teichroeb

Year Or Two – A Pandemic Song for the Lockdown

It’s been almost a year since I wrote YEAR OR TWO – a pandemic song. I planned to record it in December with Kelly Field, Rob Remmurda & Ron Cote. We will record it as band but for now here’s the lockdown version & video. (Please subscribe to my Youtube channel as well).

Year Or Two

6 feet apart or 6 feet under
Masking my face, living like a prepper
Plexi glass between me an you
They say we get it back in a year or two
Isolation suits me fine I keep my distance, stand in line
Almost out money, rents overdue
They say we get it all back in a year or two 

A year or two, a year or two, Where you gonna be in a year or two?

Old folks dying alone and scared
Front line workers treated unfair
Just like you I don’t know what to do
They say we get it all back in a year or two
Ready or not, here I come
You've been tagged, but the game ain’t done
I made it home free, but what about you
They say we’ll get it back in a year or two 

A year or two, a year or two, Where you gonna be in a year or two?

Jets stopped flying oil stayed in the ground
The whole world breathed took a look around
Said “this aint no Kobayashi Maru"
Needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few
Needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few
They say we’ll get it back in a year or two 

A year or two, a year ot two, Where you gonna be in a year or two?
(Dave Teichroeb 2020).

Gabriola Songs Release Concert Raises $4,000 for PHC

The sold out Gabriola Songs CD concert was a roaring success with over twenty acts performing! I produced the CD and organized the concert with Ivan Bulic and Gerry Stefason. Many other volunteers helped out to make this one of the great musical nights on Gabriola.

$4000 was raised for People For a Healthy Community!

Thank you, thank you!
