John Tate is a multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and songwriter, originally from Vancouver, BC.. He has lived and performed all over North America with musicians from the Blues, Country and Rock genres. 

Over the years, John has shared the stage with both past and present members of some of the world's top bands and/or performers, including ... Taylor Swift, Brett Eldredge, Atlanta Rhythm Section, Starship, Don Felder, Great White, Randy Bachman, Colin James,
Tom Cochrane & Red Rider and Honeymoon Suite, to name a few.


"I'm very fortunate to have been able to work as a drummer and/or a guitar player, with some incredibly talented people, for most of my life. Although I've never played with any "big name" bands or artists, I like to say I've managed to get the '6 degrees of separation' down to 1 degree. They've all had some sort of influence on me and shared so much with me, whether they realized it or not."

Big thanx to you all !!!!
