Durham Street

Before he was even a teenager, Colin Jennison put together an original punk rock band: By Permit Only. This high energy 3 piece act drew the attention of Alan Frew, of Glass Tiger fame, who managed the band for a time. After selling a truck load of original CDs and playing great local venues like the Skydome, Massey Hall, The El Mocambo, Hard Rock cafe and more - the band broke up as the boys reached their late teens. Colin, now facing the costs of post secondary education, turned to touring cover band LUCKY 13 to fund his existence. With Colin at the helm, Lucky 13 filled the gig schedule out with Ontario’s best bars and performed 2-3 times a week growing in popularity at A list venues. With the help of some tribute acts (same band members) that garnered over a million hits on YouTube, the band toured the USA as well and making stops in Mexico, Bermuda and Italy at big festivals and events. Now in his early 30's he is eager to continue spreading his passion and love for music, Colin joined Durham Street and looks forward to each and every opportunity to ROCK!

Taras Kapanaiko – Drums/Percussion

Taras, known for many nicknames, is a long time resident of Oshawa who started honing his craft early, playing in high school buddy garage bands struggling to respectfully reproduce Zeppelin and Rush while concurrently playing in the school's award winning concert and Jazz combos.  

Bar band life began when forming The Verge an R&B/ classic rock cover band which toured the GTA hot spots like EL Mocambo , The Opera House, Sneaky Dees and too many private parties to mention.  An appearance on Rogers Cable brought the band some success,  but soon after the band broke up to pursue life commitments. For the last 10 years Taras has also been a member of Man Gravy, a  GTA band steeped in variations of The Beatles and vintage Blues with a twist. Taras is also a proud father of two spirited teens who continue to amaze him daily.
