The Wannabees in 2000
Peter, Mike and Matt


I am a musician that has been playing the Pacific northwest for the last 30 some odd years.  I presently have a band that has been playing the Vancouver area since 1999 and we are having a blast for an old  bunch of rockers !!  We are called the Wannabees ( ).

The main band I was associated with in the 80’s was called “Steamer” originating in the interior of B.C. but soon based ourselves out of Vancouver as we started to become very popular.  At the height of our popularity we were managed by Stonebolt’s management team until I left in the mid 80’s.
