Rich Greenspoon, Doug Wilde, David Woodhead, Joaquin Hidalgo and Bob Cohen lifting off at the Dominion on Queen.

“complex, orchestrated music, complete with unusual time signatures, backed by the stellar Confabulation...
There’s a lot to absorb, but the melodies get embedded in your head.” - Penguin Eggs magazine review of the Confabulation CD.

Confab’ul/ate, v.i.
  1: engage in conversation: talk.
  2: fabricate imaginary experiences as compensation
       for loss of memory...

    It’s all about interplay - musical conversations and
fabrications from an imaginary coffeehouse late one
night in a distant past, or an imminent future...

    Featuring David Woodhead’s fanciful instrumentals,
powerful Oliver Schroer tunes, ukulele excursions
and fearless improvisation.,. with occasional Lord
Buckley rants and Neruda poems.

    Some long-term musical relationships and some brand new.
The Confabulation is a unique collaboration of adventurous
performance veterans with like-minded stellar young players.


We're on the  CBC radio 3  site.
