Album Notes
The John Tetrault Group is the band of guitarist/singer/songwriter John Tetrault. “Keepsies” is the 2nd CD featuring John's songs, following on the very popular “Mermaid Café”.

“Keepsies” is a jazzy, easy listening CD with meaningful and sometimes fun lyrics combining danceable tunes with wonderful slow sentimental sounds. Any jazz fan will appreciate Tetrault’s Steely Dan inspired guitar style with original lyrics and gentle vocals. Mike Watson's genius on keys and with saxophone and flute is present throughout; audience members at the well-attended CD release concert were wowed by his artfully crafted solos.

A well known and respected musician and songwriter from the Annapolis Valley in Nova Scotia, John Tetrault has been performing and writing music for over three decades. His love of music began as the guitarist for his high school stage band at Horton District High.

John has studied with Roddie Elias, Ken Davidson and has attended clinics with guitarists such as Frank Gambali.
As a teacher and clinician during the past 30 years, John has enjoyed the opportunity to share his passion for music with aspiring musicians. He has been teaching guitar and helping with bands at King’s-Edgehill School for many years. In addition he has offered private lessons, song writing workshops and guitar workshops. John has been a faculty member at the Acadia University Jazz Camp since 1990. He has performed at the Halifax Jazz Festival, and the Earth and Lunenburg folk Festivals. John’s solo work has included appearances at weddings, receptions and private parties as well as various local pubs and community venues. John has often been called upon as a pit guitarist, including for shows staged at the Atlantic Theatre Festival. His versatility has been welcome in many musical genres as a studio musician and more recently as a producer.
He performs with his band, The John Tetrault Group, which plays many dates throughout the year. John has played with some members of this band since high school. He and his group have been showcased at the East Coast Music Awards and various concerts around Nova Scotia. They have an extensive list of clients, including corporations, professional associations and various levels of governments.

One of the many projects John is involved with is the Gypsy Jazz band Swingology, which is performing around the province. John also finds time to record and produce his original work with local musicians.

John released twelve of his original compositions on Mermaid Café and 11 new compositions have just been released on Keepsies. A CD recorded with Swingology was released in August. Currently he is at work on a solo album of jazz standards and six songs into the next recording of original work.
