Porkbelly Futures ... is a musical group. They describe their music as "north country, born of the blues." They began as a straightforward bar band, emulating the Chicago sound of the great Paul Butterfield, but as they began to write their own music, country influences began creeping in. They conceived of their new sound as "north country" because they are Canadian lads, born and bred.
The basic founding group consists of Paul Quarrington, Martin Worthy, Chas Elliott and Stuart Laughton. They regularly perform with Rebecca Campbell. Their original songs are both witty and touching. Their live performances are characterized by masterful instrumental work, gay banter and the occasional magic trick.
