New to Shaguar!
Derk Granite: Lead/Rhythm Guitar When he is not flying his Learjet, 6th cousin to the most interesting man in the world, may be found in a dark, off the beaten path pub, drinking Dos Equis and watching bunny fights. Sauvé and debonair, he's often sought out by Hollywood's elite for fashion advice and inspiration. His most notorious moment: turning down a knighthood from the queen. Bio supplied by his muse and long-time lover, Patty Cakes.
Alberto Pipeline: Rhythm/Lead Guitar Mr. Pipeline got his big break when he met "Clappy" the hobo singer in front of a liquor store where he was busking for small change. They became fast friends until Clappy assumed the role of agent and manager and got Alberto some dubious gigs including a performance of Wagner's "Rinse Cycle" at the Hairy Hill Legion Hall to an indifferent audience. He has received accolades such as "I really like what you were trying to do there." and "I was expecting a cadenza, not a credenza." We think he might live and work somewhere around here.
Happy to have these guys on board and we are looking to gig starting in the late spring!
Sad news, due to health reasons Tex Wonderful will not be able to stay on full-time with the Shags. He may, however, make a guest appearance here or there.
It has also been confirmed that Alberto Pipeline, who was suggested by Tex, will be joining Shaguar full on. We wish Tex all the best and better health, and look forward to having Alberto join us.
A Shaguar cover of My Gal is Red Hot written by Billy Emerson circa 1955 featuring Ms. Lily on vocals. The song was recorded live on October 27 2012 at the Avenue Theatre, a Blue Goat production “Halloween in Space”. Recorded by Core Musician Services www.coremusicianservices.com and then mixed quick by Jason Grilo, with further mastering by Sparky Vegas.

Working up more tunes and considering original material. Every member of Shaguar brings something unique to the group and our growing repertoire reflects this.
On the drawing board are tunes by Atomic 7, Laika and the Cosmonauts, and the Ramblin Ambassadors, to name a few. And of course we continue to mine the back catalogue of classic surf rock.
We are exploring warm-up opportunities with some very cool local bands and continue to climb the ReverbNation Edmonton Rock chart making new fans and friends.
Our website www.shaguar.ca has been updated as well.
The best of thanksgiving's to you.
Recorded "off the floor'' with two mikes (stereo)...old school style. A cover of a smoking tune by Satan’s Pilgrims one of my favorite instrumental surf rock bands. Check them out on facebook.
