The Nater Brothers


Ron and Martin Nater - who hail from a large musical family in the Netherlands (land of Golden Earring, Focus, Shocking Blue, Eddie and Alex van Halen) - played popular rock band tunes in the mid nineties at shows in Toronto, St. Catharines and Kitchener.

After living on separate continents for a few years (while Ron toured with other bands throughout Ontario, Canada) Ron and Martin rejoined voices and guitars and continue to grace audiences with their 4-piece band (currently with Michael Gieseking on the bass + backing vocals and David Cassimally on the drums) and a fresh brew of naterized classic tunes.
