Mr. Goudreau,
Please excuse me for bothering you with this question, but I have been trying to find Pierre Lafrenais for many years.
In the mid 1970’s I belonged to an 8 piece horn band from Minnesota named the Young Raiders (originally Octopus). We were playing a week long gig in Sherbrooke and I was about to leave the band and a very young (at the time trumpet) player at the time came to hear the band most every night and we got to know him and auditioned him and asked him to join the band.
When we got back to Minnesota he took over for me and the band had a gig in Sioux Falls, South Dakota at the Macamba Club. It was a five hour gig and Pierre injured his lip and had to go back home to Montreal (I think).
So, why am I contacting you to find him?
I happened to find one entry for him on the internet from the CBC radio show As It Happens.
150 DEGRES A L'OMBRE Duration: 00:00:45
Album: LA VIE LA VIE TELESERIE
Label: PGC, PGC-CD-9435
Persons/Roles: LUC SICARD - COMPOSER
JUSTIN ALLARD - DRUMS
ERIC AUCLAIR - CONTRABASS
CARL BASTIEN - GUITAR
MICHEL DUBEAU - CLARINET
GILBERT JOANIS - CONTRABASS
PIERRE LAFRENAIS - TRUMPET
ALAIN QUIRION - DRUMS
GILLES SCHETAGNE - DRUMS
LUC SICARD - GUITAR
MAXIME ST-PIERRE - TRUMPET



I could find nothing else on Pierre so I looked up Maxime St-Pierre (figuring he would know Pierre) and could find no contact information but found that he sometimes plays with you and I got your contact information from your web site (by the way, I love the recordings on your site and your use of horns and the variety of tunes).

So, if you would do me a great favor, could you put me into contact with Pierre Lafrenais, and if not him, with Maxime St-Pierre so that I can hopefully find Pierre after almost 40 years?

Thanks for your consideration,
I hope to hear from you.
Best regards,
Craig Mesenbring

We are speechless. Your show was nothing short of amazing. Then we went to Checkpoint Charlie's after the show and were once again struck by your talent and the talents of the other band members. Please come back to Checkpoint Charlie's!

We totally enjoyed the entire evening.

Bonjour Mike,
Moi et ma conjointe avons assisté à ton concert au Festival du jazz de Montréal. Un très beau spectacle de qualité, d'excellents musiciens et une belle variété de musique. Nous t'avions découvert à St-Donat. Je suis celui qui à qui tu avais fait parvenir ton disque -Stardust- qui n'était plus disponible. J'écoute souvent tes disques. Merci

Hi Mike... long time since we jammed together. Glad to see all seems well with you. The music is real fine. I'm still at it as well, although I live in the NWT and don't have a lot of venues. I'm headed into the studio this month for my very own blues project... I'll be setting up a website soon (by proxy) and hope to get some stuff "out there". I'm glad I found your site... take care and God bless..Jim

Hockeytown. Great song... I'm certain I will one day hear it on Hockey Night in Canada or some documentary about our national pastime. You are a truly gifted artist and your swingin' style truly rocks! I've also been fortunate to see three of your shows at the Montreal Jazz Festival. Usually they turn out to be the best ones that I see. Who knew that Beatles' covers at the Youth Center and country sets at The Maples would lead to this. Wow!!! Hope one day to see little brother once more accompanying big brother on the drums. Cheers.

Just viewed the " Hockeytown" YouTube video. Made me VERY home sick! Nicely done!!
Glad to find the info about your site also...let me know if you ever play in LA.
All the best you you.

I knew you were hot but wow! Quite the red carpet of experience you have. This song popped into my mind this am and after hearing it I thought of you thinking how amazing it would be to hear you perform it live. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0szwmdAfeNw Eric Bibb Don't Let Nobody Drag Your Spirit Down. This search opened the door to this grand artist as well http://www.ericbibb.com/. It's a great day of discoveries. Take care and keep doing what you do 'cause you do it real well.

Hey Mike, Your music is awesome - as it always has been - even back in the day when I used to ask you to sing some of those great country hits! I went to Archambeault's in Sherbrooke and picked up a CD last month to send to my father-in-law in FLA for his birthday. BTW... they only had 2 in stock - time to drop more off!!

Hey Buddy.Love the site.Love your music.Love you man.I'll see you at the blues festival.

Really great blues and swing music. I love that shufflin' rhythm guitar (and organ too!) style with those fat compound second harmonies. That really swings in contrast to tons of other bands talkin' about it.

For this reason it is really unjustified that you are probably unknown in Central Europe. But just don't care for that, because basically we don't know here neither that you play blues music nor you speak french out there in Canada ;-)

Lucille Gaudreau

Hi Mike, Love your music. I, too, was born in Newport, VT. Gee, maybe we are cousins!!! Music also runs in our family.
Hope to see you at the Haskell Opera House Sat. June 20, 2009. J'ecris ce mots en ecoutant "Drole de Chaussures".
My oldest sister, Pier, an accomplished pianist, plays not only by note but mostly by ear. I just can picture her play with you. Listening to your music fits her style of music... But she also likes Art Tatum, Monk, and many others. I prefer rock, blues, light jazz, some classical, and even some country rock at times. Every year in Sherbrooke, Quebec, the Gaudreaus apparently get together. I have seen your name in the list even though you spell your name Goudreau. I've never gone to any reunions. Have you? If so, do you play any music there?
Hope to see you soon. Your cousin, perhaps. Lucille (Luli)
