F8-BIT (pronounced fate-bit) are a cover band dedicated to classic console game themes. The quartet consists of some of Ottawa’s highest-scoring jazz players, who owe their quick fingers and epic grip strength to blistering rounds of Super Mario Kart as much as they do to music school. Expect to hear modern takes on the themes from Punchout, Super Mario World, Excite Bike, Mega Man, the Legend of Zelda, Sonic the Hedgehog and many more of your favourite classic console games. F8-BIT delivers a total K.O. every time!

The players are:

Michel Delage - drums

Alex Moxon - guitar

Jake Von Warden - bass

Steve Boudreau - keys
