"Doc" Sawyer (keyboards)


  Mel, a.k.a. “Doc” Sawyer officially began his musical career at the age of 12, placing second in a classical piano competition in the Manitoba Music Festival.  That afternoon he bought his first LP – The Beatles’ Twist and Shout – then immediately dropped the “classical”  and graduated to playing keys in Winnipeg garage bands.  After a decades long musical hiatus, he was bitten by the blues and is thrilled to be the newest member of the Hell's Gate Blues Band.
