Jack has extensive experience on the Ottawa music scene, displaying his keyboard mastery in bands like Reflex, A.I., Retro and Riverbend. Playing on some of Ottawa's finest stages alongside acts like Ian Tamblyn, the Bara Mcneils and David Wilcox, Jacques is recognized as a keyboard guru of progressive rock and jazz.

Bobby St. Louis

Bassist and vocalist

Bobby joined DarkSpeed in January 2023. I can say that he is one of Ottawa's finest bassist mastering the techniques of Geddy Lee (Rush), Roger Waters (Pink Floyd) and John Entwistle (The Who) as well as many others. Being a lover of music and passionate about his instrument, Bobby always thrives to be a better Musician. Initially in his teens, he started on guitar but when his brother gave him one of his basses, he fell in love with it and made that his primary instrument. He also learned Piano and synths. Having played in the Ottawa/Gatineau music scene for over 40 years, Bobby played in the mid 80’s with a Rush tribute band Artefact, an original rock band called Sanderson, recorded at Metalworks studio, played for a radio station group called The Energie band that went on to open for bands like Big Sugar, Honeymoon Suite, Platinum Blonde, and countless others. And with his brother, he played bass and keys in a few bands such as Axis, Reflexxion and, Transcendence. Finally, Bobby has been a member of tribute bands covering Elton John, Genesis and The Trans-Siberian Orchestra most often playing keyboards. These days, Bobby passionately spends time in his studio, recording with Code 18, and making videos with Johnny Maz and friends, as well as recording bass and keyboard tracks for all kinds of projects. But Bobby’s first love is playing bass to a live audience! He still gets the excitement of playing as if it was the first time. “The chemistry and the musicianship in DarkSpeed is like no other I’ve played with! Looking forward to rock the next show”.

Marc Leclair

With the exception of a ten-year hiatus, Marc’s been playing in bands since the age of nine, totalling over 40 years of live band experience. After his formative years in school bands and in Rock 70’s and 80’s cover bands, and in the 90’s in a large stage band called Synchro consisting of nine musicians and twenty singers for theatre and festival concerts, Marc continued to build his chops covering many genres of music such as Country, Jazz, Pop, Rock, Broadway and such. In 2015 he returned to his first love, the cover band bar scene, joining the Ottawa Cover band MIGIZI.

Marc early gear: Marc started with a Trainor Bass Master head into a Hiwatt 4x12 Celestions. Pedals such as MXR Distorsion, BOSS Chorus, Delay and Flanger, VOX Wah, The Zonk Machine Fuzz.... you get the idea. From the 90's onward Marc was an early adopter of modellers such as Roland GP-16, then the Line6 HD500. Currently, he uses a 1977 MANN LP Custom (Lawsuit guitar), a 40th Anniversary Edition US Fender Strat, a Harley Benton Standard Fat Strat and his main instrument, the Ibanez S670QM-DEB. That with the Line 6 Helix Floor and LT and some other pedals Marc performs sonic magic!
