Nelligan O’Brien Payne’s band – The Nellotones

iPhones and briefcases were ditched for microphones and instruments, when the Nellotones took the stage at the Mercury Lounge in Ottawa for a benefit performance supporting  OrKidstra, a music program for children aged 5 to 15 in under-served areas of Ottawa.  Band members include lawyers Steve Waller (drums, percussion), Leanne Storms (vocals), Sean McGee (keyboards and piano), and good friend Doug Gilchrist (guitar).

“We know the positive effect that learning and playing music can have in a person’s life. OrKidstra brings those opportunities to children in our communities who might never have the chance.  We are delighted if we can have fun performing and putting together a CD while at the same time making a contribution to this worthwhile cause,” band member Sean McGee said.
