Story/Description

Last Updated: October 8, 2015

Priscilla’s Revenge is a three piece Rockin’ Blues Band. In the last 2 years this band has been playing a variety of venues around Yellowknife. The combination of talented players coupled with a electric blues format, acoustic blues and thoughtful lyrics are receiving very favorable response from the public.

The members of the group are:

Born in Yellowknife NWT of Metis ancestry, Norm Glowach has been involved in the Northern music scene all of his life. From the early days of music programs and garage rock bands, Norman’s name has been synonymous as a master of his primary instrument, the drums.

Throughout Norman’s long career in music, not only has he dedicated himself to the North with his personal music, but has become an innovative leader within the musical community. As well as practicing his art, he has been a mentor for many musicians wanting to be on the cutting edge of technology. When not working at the NWT Archives, Norman runs his recording studio “Spiritwalker Productions” in Yellowknife. He is the most recorded drummer in Yellowknife and has been a member of many different bands performing over a period of 35 years in North.

Greg Nasogaluak of Inuvialuit ancestry, is originally from the community of Tuktoyaktuk, He started playing the guitar at an early age and has continued for the last 21 years. Encouraged by his parents, Eunice and William Nasogaluak of the “Tuk Drummers and Dancers” he continues the tradition of music in this long time northern family.

Greg’s guitar playing can be heard on many northern recording projects from folk artists to punk rock groups. Greg is quickly becoming the “guitar player to call” when musicians need a guitar track done in the studio. His rock background, love of the blues, talent and dedication to his craft are turning him into an excellent guitar player who is a joy to watch.

Blair Brezinski is the bass player, and newest member of the band. Born in Yellowknife Blair has been playing In the North for many years. The blues rock style of Priscilla’s Revenge is a nice fit for Blair. Since joining the band he has become an equal partner in the songwriting process, and his bass playing and vocals have moved the band into new areas.

Priscilla’s Revenge is working hard to explore the roots of blues/rock music and it is showing in the music that the band is writing. On April 14th 2007 the band released their first album “Built for Speed”. Songs from the album are currently being played on all three radio stations in Yellowknife and is part of regular rotation in at CFRC 101.9 in Toronto. It has also been selected as one of John’s Blues Pick’s (Toronto Blues Society). Since May of 2007, they have written 20 new songs and are working on a second album titled ‘Roadworthy” which is due to be released May 27th, 2008. The influences of this band stretch from Jimmy Reed, Bo Diddley and Cream, all the way to their originals. This is the best blues rock band in Yellowknife.
