The Wade Brothers, Richard and David, have been entertaining professionally since the age of eight. They began with piano lessons and after five years started playing guitar.
Singing was always a favorite hobby for them. They were always picking and singing country and cross-over rock in the background as they joined in with the junior choir, school glee-club, and for 20 years with the Barbershoppers.
In university, they sank in Red ‘n Black, coffee houses and hootenanies as well as eleven live CBC shows in Halifax. Since 1982 the Wade Brothers have been associated with Capital City Jamboree and Country Showcase always mixing humour and good fun with their own kind of country music.
They have also sung in fairs as well as countless churches, beauty pageants, senior citizen's homes and numerous charities throughout the province of New Brunswick. Several national television and radio shows have featured them including, “Up Home Tonight,” Mid-Day Magazine,” and “On the Road Again.”
As dentists, the Wade Brothers have tried to promote good public relations for their entire profession by bringing the “common touch” to their many listeners.
