The Dunn Project is a three piece band. The band members are: Tony Dunn (vocals, guitar, piano, saxophone) Jody McRory (vocals and bass) Kevin Boriel (vocals and Drums). We play original melodic Rock'N'Roll music. Along with our Rock'N'Roll style, our music has shades of hard rock, funk and folk. We are a jam band and we approach our playing with a very open, fun, free spirit. We all sing, and mix piano and saxophone into our guitar, bass, and drums arrangement. The Dunn Project began in the basement of a house in the winter of 2000. Kevin and I were living together at the time and we started jamming through a lot of previously written material that I had been stock piling over the years. A few months later Jody joined the group completing the trio. I met Kevin through friends of the family years and years ago, but didn't become good friends until we worked together at a go-kart track. This is also where I first met Jody. We worked together for a number of years at the track. It was during that time that I was playing saxophone and guitar with BYOB/Marty Sobb and the Mobb. I started playing with 'The Mobb' in high school and played with them for several years; we toured across Canada five times and opened for many great Canadian bands including Tom Cochrane, April Wine, and Colin James. I experienced and learned so much playing with the Mobb, but there came a time when I needed to branch off and do my own thing; hence the beginnings of the Dunn Project. Kevin and Jody played for a few years in an original/cover rock band called Bone Bag. This band played primarily in the Ottawa area in such clubs as Barrymore's and Maxwell's. Jody also fronted an original band - Bag of Hammers for a brief period during this time. Together we played a few gigs as a blues band (The Poor House Blues Band) with our musician friends. We always had a lot of fun playing together and the three of us shared a similar love of music, had similar musical influences, and a common idea about the type of melodic Rock'N'Roll music we wanted to play. Over the next few years we jammed as a trio as regularly as we could, and eventually built up enough material to played a few gigs. We were constantly writing and bringing new ideas to the group, and it came to a point where we realized that we needed to record. We picked our nine strongest songs and began laying down drum, bass, guitar, vocal, piano and saxophone tracks. We recorded our first album at Raven Street Studios with Marty Sobb engineering the album and Jason Jaknunas mixing and mastering. The album is a collection of the early music we started jamming. We are all influenced by many styles of music: from classic rock, and heavy metal, to soul and funk, to jazz and classical, and even country. We as a band try and let all our influences shape our music.
