The Nomads was founded in 1989 by Singer/Guitar player Tony Paglia. The band is aptly named both for its musical diversity and for the many roads they have travelled to perform. From Toronto to Hong Kong, from Niagara-on-the-Lake to the Muskokas, The Nomads have truly earned their name.

With exceptionally talented members, the band is equally comfortable playing many genres of music including Dance, Reggae, R & B, Soul, Funk, Classic Rock, Swing and Latin with musical authenticity and integrity. As The Nomads, these musicians are adventurous and inspired. Every show sparkles with its own flavor.

Meet The Band

Gabor Szepesi – Keyboard

Gabor went on the road, after graduation to pursue a career in music. Touring for years with bands like Bloodstone, Mango, Justin Paige, Grant Smith, Lenny Solomon, Charity Brown, Janet Harper, The Ryan Brothers, Laurie Schedler, Atlantis, Better Late, Ultrasound and Sweet Blindness.

In the 70’s and 80’s Gabor did many recording sessions at Toronto’s premiere recording studios as well as “live to air” television music series productions on CHCH and CTV.

In the mid 80’s he decided to follow another passion and created a very successful audio production company, PA+ Productions Inc.

PA+ had house rigs in the most prestigious live music venues in the city. These included The Jarvis House, Lee’s Palace, The Diamond Club, Rock’Roll Heaven, RPM, The Government, and on and on.

In the early 90’s PA+ was awarded the status of “preferred supplier” to some or Toronto’s most prestigious live performance venues. These included: Massey Hall, Roy Thomson Hall, The Sony Centre and The Harbourfront Centre.

Our services division also established itself as a player in world class theatre production. In 1992 we launched the world premiere of the Live Entertainment production of “Kiss of the Spider Woman”, a theatre production that toured the world after the Toronto launch.

PA+ also had a very successful integration division that was very respected by the leading consultants. It did projects that encompassed an enormous scope. Some of our installations include: Fallsview Casino, Lakehead University, University of Windsor, Massey Hall, Roy Thompson Hall, Bruce Power, Legislative Assembly of Beijing, Copps Coliseum, Halifax Legislature, Molson Barrie Arena, Celebration Square, and on and on.

Gabor sold PA+ in 2014 and still runs a local tour support company, Backline Plus Inc. BL+ is a world class supplier of professional musical instrument rentals and still services all of the preferred supplier contracts that were serviced by PA+.

Gabor moved to Wasaga Beach in 2016 and is playing every week at local bars. He is actively playing with Wayne Buttery and the Groove Project, Lisa Hutchinson, Dean McTaggart, The Collective, and Mike Roberts, as well as traveling to Toronto to do periodic session work.

Today Gabor concentrates on managing Backline Plus and is the VP of Integration at Metalworks Production Group. But he still makes time to follow his passion for playing music.

LANCE ISAACS Acoustic Tuesday
Jul 2 @ 5:00 pm

“Lance Isaacs has one of those voices, a voice people need to hear”
-Ryan Weber, The Weber Brothers

Contemporary folk-soul musician Lance Isaacs is a singer/songwriter born and raised on Six Nations, an aboriginal community southwest of Hamilton, ON.

Recognized and revered for his sultry vocals and soulful, melodic compositions, his live performance is both instantly captivating and emotionally engaging.

The power and potency of his voice is starkly contrasted by a confidence and light hearted disposition that is at once both endearing and comforting. The broad range and spectrum of his music, which presents everything from woeful themes of self reflection to the celebration of seeking ones own place in the world, culminates in a depth of feeling seldom felt, let alone heard.

One cannot help but think that his original composition “Undercover Man” is somewhat autobiographical as he seems to be an undercover observer of the human experience, one with the innate ability to reflect back to us in vivid detail the feelings we were ourselves already feeling, and the emotions we may have been trying to hide from.
