AGENDA The Rock Band Bio:
A.gen.da : or Things to be done. The plural of agendum.
In the begining of May 2004, AGENDA was formed in a apt/studio of the plateau Mont-Royal in the heart of Montréal. Todd and Meeshka have known each other since 1997. They would both gravitate around good ol' buddy Goose's pad on St.Laurent Blvd. From throwing around ideas, and philosphizing while enjoying tea, Mike and Todd decided to get a project going. Ingrid (25), originally from Moncton, N. B. answered an Ad on the Web. She was just what they were looking for. With a solid classical background (She plays violin since the age of 7) she was just dying to break free into some uncharted territory. AGENDA was born.
AGENDA sees the light with 28 songs under it's belt and 30 more waiting to be put together. Todd (33) has written these songs over the past forteen years while travelling through Canada and while working at the most unlikely jobs. Todd has busked across Canada from Victoria to Montreal. The Montreal Metro (subway) is a great place for voice training and not a great place to make money, but when you get busy people to stop and momentarily forget where they are going, just to to listen, then you know you got someting good going. In 1997, Todd was lead singer of a band called SAMSARA, performing some songs that he still sings today. What a great apprenticeship. People are still talking about the energy that night at the now defunct Jailhouse Rock Cafe, opening up the evening for Pat Gauthier's RAID and Toronto's GUTSHOT.
Back in 1989, Meeshka (3
was the drummer for a local Metal band called REACTOR. A lot of drumming later, his last band being BENIGN, he brings along that experience to acomplish this agenda.
Joel has just joined the band on June 24th. He brings loads of experience, musical school training, big bass and plus he's a webmaster.
