Tony “Wild T” Springer has hung with the best of them. David Bowie, Jeff Healey, Bon Jovi, Deep Purple, Jay Leno, David Letterman and Arsenio Hall are just some of the musical acts and personalities that have been blown away by Wild T’s guitar playing.
Wild T is originally from Tunapuna, Trinidad. Though one may find similarities to Jimi Hendrix, ironically it was T’s first exposure to Steve Howe and classic Yes that inspired him to take up guitar.
Moving to Toronto, Canada, T quickly gained a reputation on the local club circuit. Since then he has recorded two albums (Love Crazy 1991 and Givin’ Blood 1995) with his own group, Wild T and the Spirit for Warner Brothers. He has also recorded an album (Black Tie, White Noise) with David Bowie and has appeared with Bowie on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with David Letterman and the Arsenio Hall Show.
He has toured with Bon Jovi and Deep Purple throughout North America and has performed thousands of club shows. Recently he was asked to portray Jimi Hendrix in the Monkee Movie for TMN because of his resemblance and showmanship.
Guenther Kapelle is originally from Kelowna, British Columbia, where he grew up in a musical family. He has been playing the bass guitar for over 20 years.

John Bouvette, originally from Shawinigan, Quebec, has been playing drums for over 35 years. He has recorded three albums with Warner Brothers recording artists Frozen Ghost and has performed all over North America with them. He has recorded with Sony recording artist Our Lady Peace and has performed with Chantal Kreviazuk and David Wilcox throughout Canada.
