Joel Perreault was the last addition to the original line up of TMC in the early fall of 2000.  He joined right before the release of the band's first disc "Maritime Sun" and had to play catch up, learning about 15 songs in a very short period of time.  Perreault has performed with many talented acts including Marie Josee Clement, Justin Lacroix Band and Jocelyne Baribeau.  He is known not only for his musicianship but also his skills as a songwriter and recording engineer/producer.

Role: Lead guitarist, backing vocals, songwriter.
