Profile
Formed in Montreal in the late 1960s as Les Gants Blancs, the band went through a variety of names before settling on Offenbach. The band initially consisted of vocalist Gerry Boulet, guitarist Johnny Gravel, organist Pierre Harel, bassist Michel Lamothe (son of country singer Willie Lamothe) and drummer Denis Boulet (Gerry's brother). Offenbach released their debut album, Offenbach Soap Opéra, in 1971. Denis Boulet left the band in 1972, and was replaced by Roger (Wezo) Belval. Further lineup changes ensued. The band continued, releasing a number of albums throughout the 70s and early 80s until they split in 1985. In 1996, three members of Offenbach reunited for a tour with new musicians rounding out the lineup. Beginning in 2005 the reunited band released some new recordings, and continues touring as of 2012.
