After fifteen years steeped in individual musical projects, the four members of Bob Loblaw have reformed and have plugged themselves back into Ottawa's alternative-to-the-alternative music scene. Bob Loblaw spent the 1990's crafting a catalogue of material and an over-the-top live show that led to a reputation for being the wackiest and tightest prog-Zappa-reggae-punk-alt-delete-country outfit in Centretown.

While the original life of Bob Loblaw encompassed five years of shows throughout Ontario and a full-length release entitled “Monkey Do”, the newly resurrected group intends to go much further. The band has always had a penchant for bridging genre-chasms and years of individual musical exploration (Mash Potato Mashers, Backtalk Organ Trio, The Gutterboys, Burnt Reynolds, Resurrection Quartet) only casts a wider stylistic net for Bob Loblaw to bring together.

Death Cake is the newest musical oddity featuring Dave Lauzon and Jay McConnery, who made a name for themselves touring clubs and arenas from Tofino to Kentucky as two-thirds of improvising rockers nero. Pushing the boundaries and possibilities of riff rock, reggaeton and electric schizophrenia, Death Cake will leave you satisfied, exhausted and enthralled.
