Baritone Madness was formed by Pat Belliveau, Keith O’Rourke, and Gareth Bane to bring the magic of the baritone saxophone to audiences across North America.
Pat Belliveau is a Canadian saxophonist who has played with artists such as Herbie Hancock, Harry Connick Jr., The New York Voices and Nikki Yanofsky. He has played on over 50 records and has released two albums as a leader, La Zona Blanca and The Pat Belliveau Quintet Live in Panama.
Keith O’Rourke is a born and raised Albertan. He released his debut album Sketches from the Road in 2017. Keith is the co-leader of the Past Present Quintet and a member of the Prime Time Big Band. He also plays with the Calgary Jazz Orchestra, the Calgary Creative Arts Ensemble and Stage West Calgary.
Since returning to Alberta from New York City in 2011 after taking his Masters in Jazz Performance at Rutgers University, Gareth Bane has continued to push the boundaries of the baritone saxophone. Modern improvisational jazz concepts and the roots of blues, combined with a “take no prisoners” approach to the horn, thus creating a unique and powerful voice on that instrument.
Rounding out the band are Kodi Hutchinson on bass and Tyler Hornby on drums.
