The Band

Loading Zone has been together since 1982 - and no, that’s not a typo! All of the four founding members are still with the band today. John Pineo, Mauro Coluccio, John Nelligan and Rick Kloess The four were joined by Marco Mancini on guitar to round out the current roster. The band is ocassionally joined by other musicians as needed to raise the roof! The band has a simple philosophy – nothing gratuitous - no solos that are longer than what’s on the record - be kind to kittens - and play tunes people know the words to (or at a minimum say “ man I haven’t heard that one in years!). The goal is to make the corporate function, private party or bar gig into the best living room party the crowd has ever been to. Whether it’s 100 people in a club or 600 at a corporate gig – you’ll always get our best show!

Bar Gigs

Bar Gigs: Loading Zone plays in several popular establishments in the Greater Toronto Area, and always draws a great crowd! Our shows are well prepared and features “Top 40” songs from way back to today’s latest hits. These are played with attention to musical detail and vocal harmonies. We even take requests!


Corporate Jams

Make your staff and coworkers the “Star” of your next function! Loading Zone will work with your meeting planners to integrate the rising stars in your organization into the show!
