Cover band Judge A Book plays original songs as Lost: Pet Pigeon.
Remember that feeling when you found out that your favourite uncle Bert had a secret life as a rodeo clown? Or when your best friend told you that she had been taking secret hip-hop lessons for the past year? You thought, “Wow! This I’ve got to see!”
Many people know the local cover band Judge a Book. They’ve played for more than 10 years at venues from Middleville to Pakenham, and Almonte to Bennies Corners, for house parties, street markets, country fairs and weddings. The music has always been renditions of recognizable, popular, singable, and familiar music. Mike Wattie, Steve Martin, and Jonas Barter have built a reputation playing for fun parties. It’s cover music with a high fun factor!
But did you know that they are also song writers? Mike writes songs that are heart felt, poignant, and often humourous. Jonas writes songs and poetry that are quirky, sometimes peculiar, and always original. They view their original music as most suitable for a quiet concert setting, rather than a party setting. So they formed a new band … just for their original tunes!
Welcome to Lost: Pet Pigeon. Please see the website for examples of original music and poetry, (and an explanation of the name).
