David Wills - Lead Vocals
From the age of six, when he discovered Sam Cooke on his rocket radio, David was a true believer. From his early days fronting several popular rock bands in the Seattle area, his voice took him across North America and Japan as lead singer for Casablanca recording artists Stonebolt, with Billboard-charted hits including; I Will Still Love You and Baby Don’t You Hide It.


Cristina Ciccone - Vocals
Cristina is one of the original founding members of the DYNAM!CS, sharing the lead vocals and fronting duties with David. Her innate ability to channel the vocal styles of female singers from classic to contemporary, has made her one of Canada's best kept secrets. Let her entertain you!

 

Terri Owen - Vocals
The small wonder from Down Under, Terri is the secret ingredient in the DYNAM!CS' multi-layered vocal sound.  A talented vocal arranger - and pretty mean dancer - she would sing all the horn players' parts if they'd let her.  And sometimes, they do ;-)

 

Brain McGibney - Hammond Organ & Vocals
Brother Brian McGibney is a true disciple of the Hammond organ, which he joins in harmony with Mr. Leslie’s finest rotary speakers. He has a house full of both. He is a mighty, mighty man- a necessary characteristic for hauling these impossibly heavy, but essential, engines of R&B.

David Patrick - Trumpet
Little did his parents know the doors they were opening when they sent their apple-cheeked boy off to trumpet lessons. Don’t let the youthful good looks deceive you: David has the nightlife in his soul, and it would take more than medicine to cure him.

 

Andrew Davies - Tenor Sax
The hardest-working tenor man in show business, Andrew lays it down with cool authority. When he’s not blowing tasty solos for The Dynamics, he can be found in the front line of Spacious Couch, his award-winning jazz-funk ensemble. The jazz-cat beard comes and goes, depending on his wife’s mood.

 

Steve Cross - Lead Guitar & Vocals
a.k.a. Esteban Cruz, he's graced hundreds of stages in his career with well respected blues acts like the Foreman-Young Band, and more recently The Toasters. Steve is a guitar craftsman, whose solos are as crisp as his natty stage attire.

 

Bryan Wilson - Bass Guitar & Vocals
Bryan was a featured member of several popular BC-based bands during the peak nightclub era of the 70's and 80's. He was once even signed to a solo recording contract.  In addition to laying down the solid bass grooves people love to dance to, Bryan's high, clear vocals provide a perfect contrast to the other DYNAM!CS voices.

 

Mark Owen - Drums

A solid, swinging groove grounds the DYNAM!CS rhythm section, driven to perfection by Mark.  A lover of vintage wood, single malt Scotch, and everything fine, Mark lays it down for you to feel.  It's impossible not to dance when Mark's in the chair!
