Emily (Vocals, Guitar)

Stay tuned.....she's a bit shy!!!! lol
Dan (Guitar, Background Vocals)

We need to update his bio - he's elusive at times!!!! lol
Terry (Lead Guitar, Background Vocals)

Hailing from the East Coast of Canada, Terry started his musical journey in a band based in Saint John called 7 Daze. From here he helped form the next band, Whiskey Jones with fellow guitarist and friend, Steve Seaman. After moving to West, he decided to reach out to other musicians in the Edmonton area which eventually formed the current lineup of Hell City Express. The rest is history so they say........
Mark (Bass, Background Vocals)

I originally hail from the small farming community of Barrhead AB. I've had a life long love of music, I grew up listening to everything from old school Metallica to BB King.

Took my first guitar lesson in grade 3, but got serious about playing in high school when I played in a local band with friends from school.  After college I  switched to bass and started playing for Strych9grin, a local classic rock band. I was with them for about 8 years.

And now I got a one way ticket on the Hell City Express.

Richard (Drums)

My old man use to play the bass guitar and I grew up going to bed and listening to them. I have always loved music and first real band was a 70s and 80s rock band here in edmonton and havent looked back.
I enjoy getting out and playing live and look forward to rockin out with the hell city express crew..

Went to the high school of rock and roll and the university of hard knocks.
Other passisions are motorcycles and if you need one give me a shout at argyll motorsports..
Rock out...

Hell City Rants......

The band has been enjoying a busy summer and looks forward to rocking into the colder season. We have been updating our social media pages and spending a lot of time together working on new material to bring to the masses! We hope everyone has an opportunity to get out and spend some time with the band in the coming months.

On a more technical note, we have spent some time honing our sound as well - both Dan and Terry have transitioned to floor model, direct to front of house guitar units which are working great for us!! The future will see further changes in both gear and sound and we are excited to see that come together.
