Top Shelf Band is an Ottawa-based 3-piece band of local veteran musicians having a total of 120 years of combined musical recording and performing experience. Top Shelf Band is heavily influenced by the music of our audience's youth - the high energy popular radio tunes from the late 70's through the 90's, focusing on playing music which incites energy and urges the audience to dance.

The band has Chris Ault (guitar, vocals), Tim Gadde (drums, vocals) and Ron Proulx (bass, vocals) coming together as a tight-knit trio driven to have fun on stage with one another and with the audience -- culminating in an upbeat, refined presentation of music, fun, and camaraderie.
