The Welders are a three piece band who play a unique brand of progressive funk-rock, with strong jamming tendencies. In 1994, three students at the University of Windsor, Peter Caira (Drums/Vocals), Chris Carlone (Guitar/Vocals), and James Doherty (Bass), got together to start a band just for fun. The three musicians had been playing off and on together for a couple of years when the idea of merging two or more cover songs, that sound alike, into one molten jam (along with wearing welding gear on stage) spawned the idea of the Welders. In 1995, after writing a few original songs, The Welders recorded a seven song demo on cassette which was well received by the local music community. The next release came in 1998 with the "Country Trucker" single, recorded in the summer of 1997. By this time, the band had become seasoned performers and in the summer of 1998, The Welders recorded their 1999 release, Lost in Hell's Foundry. The album was recorded, mixed, produced, manufactured and distributed by the band itself. The Welders play an exciting, powerful live show where anything is possible; they never play a song the same way twice. The magnitude of their musicianship and individual playing ability make The Welders a unique and talented band.
