Whether you're here because you love The Senators' music, or simply because you're a fan of Ottawa's ice hockey team, and you stumbled on this site by accident, thanks for visiting!!!
I decided to create this site after failing to find anything on the internet about The Senators. However, as you'll soon realise once you start to look around, my knowledge of the band is far from complete. This is where YOU come in. If you have any information, whether it be records which are missing from the Discography, or any facts, big or small, which I can add to the Biography page, then please e-mail me.
Whether you're familiar with The Senators or not, please feel free to sign the Guestbook with any comments you may have, or simply to say hello and

11/3/12 - From 22nd March until 15th September 2012, Jim Kitson will be appearing with the Royal Shakespeare Company at The Swan Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon in two of the Bard's plays, Richard III and King John. As he said to me via e-mail, "In the former I shall be getting shouted at by the Duke of Gloucester, hitting people with a sword and being garrotted, whilst the latter sees me shouting from battlements, gyrating hips and attempting to burn the eyes out of a nine year old child. Marvellous family entertainment. Also, thrillingly, there is an understudy run of King John on May 9th in which I will be beheaded and have some doubts". If that doesn't whet your appetite, nothing will. You can book your tickets by clicking here.
