The Main Offenders
Garry Lamb - (Centre Forward) As you can see in the photo below, Garry likes to stand around making himself look really important. Not that he is afraid of hard work; Far from it. He does this to rest his weary mind and limbs from all the repairing he usually does. Garry’s musical instrument experience started way back in Edinburgh in the mid-eighties when he embarked upon a journey that would take him to another continent – back to Scotland – onward to Canada – to another part of Europe – before finally planting roots in Canada for good. Along the road, he has worked for the largest music companies in Canada, collaborated with some of Toronto’s finest musicians, attended numerous instrument repair conferences (yes, they do have them), taught in Norway, managed repair departments, conducted repair workshops, became a sought after free-lance technician all before forming Gazebo Music Inc in its present setting.
Garry specializes in saxophone overhauls but is well-versed in all manners of woodwind and brass repair. He endeavours to take his work to the highest level and challenges the status quo in his profession everyday. Garry's main responsibilities when he isn't scoring tremendous goals on the football field, is building long lasting relationships with the Gazebo customers and continuing to spread the influence of the Gazebo Music brand.
With his 3 years college training in Scotland and a continual education process with other organizations in Canada, his experience has paid huge dividends with the creation of Gazebo Music. Garry exhibits a determination and belief that there should be a music company that provides a quality experience for its customers with exceptional service. He possesses a dedication to the craft rare in today’s heavy retail oriented world.
But that’s not all. Did you know that Garry was almost picked to represent his country in the World cup? Or so he tells me. As Scotland have never qualified for the tournament in over 20 years, I'm sure the rumour is just that. But he was blessed with perhaps now eroding natural football skills. Alas clearly in decline, he still maintains his value to the squad as an injury-prone, sluggish centre forward with no finish whatsoever. He can be seen displaying his over-rated talents most Friday nights in the summer with any team that will have him. For the music lovers looking for the best in over the top entertainment, Garry plays a mean lead guitar with Moebius Stripper. This 6-piece ensemble is guilty of terrorizing audiences throughout the G.T.A. You have been warned.

Kevin Cook - (Defence) The master of establishing efficient and effective-oriented excel exercises and extensive elongated enterprises, Kevin enjoys creating systems. But before that, he graduated from Western University with a degree in musical performance, attended Humber College and spent 4 years touring the seven seas on the cruise circuit. Kevin played with numerous orchestras, concert bands and jazz/pop/salsa/reggae infusions and attended prestigious trombone master classes. Kevin has managed instrument repair departments, organised brass workshops and had taught privately for over 20 years. He now uses his vast musical knowledge and experience to build Gazebo Music into a proudly independent and unique company. His eagerness to improve and refine our products and services for musicians and educators is ongoing.
With his years of repair experience, understanding of the changing trends in music programs and the management of large orchestral instrument inventories, Kevin is ideally suited for developing creative solutions for schools, band organisations and the individual player young and old. His passion for music is evident in his involvement as a player/coach with community youth bands, proud member of The Whitby Brass Band, Concert Band of Cobourg, Northumberland orchestra and other local groups. He is a strong supporter in the establishment of El Sistema youth orchestra initiative in Ontario and has also coordinated many summer Brass Instrument Day Camps.
Never one to back down from a challenge, Kevin has built a miniature soccer stadium of little known English football club, Crystal Palace, on his property just north of nowhere you've ever heard of. Unwary passersby can witness a replica of Selhurst Park complete with full size goals, uneven turf and virtually no spectators ....just like the original Selhurst Park. With no league title on the cards for his team, Kevin has moved on to building a chicken coop and insists that he is not quite mad.
