New Bass Player

Due to time constraints, Ande Rytch has left the band. He has been replaced by the amazing Chris Hume, a veteran top quality bassist whom we are very happy to welcome aboard. His debut show will be on March 7th when we do the charity performance at Rock N Roll Heaven on O'Connor Dr. with a 6:30 start in aid of The Hospital For Sick Children. Don't miss this event!!

Keep on Keeping On

Hi All

Catalyst is about to start into another phase in it's development. Self promotion and word of mouth are the keys in bringing this band to the forefront. Currently I am working with guitarist Steve Madden to get some new material into the shows. These are songs that I have written for my CD that is to be released on Brandy Records. In turn Brandy Records is going through changes of their own so while that whole situation sorts itself out, I will do whatever is needed to get the tunes into a performance quality and have them ready for recording when the time comes. Steve will be taking my melodies and translating them into chords and licks ( the biggest problem for a songwriter like myself who does not play an instrument fluently) Once that is completed then we have the tune ready for the rest of the band. In no time at all you the public will be enjoying them at our shows and anything that is recorded will be posted here to be downloaded when the time is right. Please be patient as we work through this new found technology. In the meantime. Al Reilly's CATALYST will be busy Keep on Keeping on!!!

Cheers, Peace & Respect Al Reilly
