The Origins

Having immigrated to Canada in the late 1950's, Dave Martins gave up a promising song-writing career with BMI Canada ("Bluenose", "Steel Men") and went back to his roots in 1966 to form the Tradewinds - a group that drew instant karma from the large West Indian community in Toronto. Dave Martins eventually owned and operated his own club "We Place" in downtown Toronto.

Riding the popularity of their first hit "Honeymooning Couple", the group became a household word in the Caribbean, touring the islands twice annually and playing the Trinidad Carnival from 1968 to 1981 as a visiting band - one of the few groups to accomplish such a feat. Since the band has been together, they have made appearances in virtually every Caribbean country (even in tiny Bequia, Guyana and such island locations as Bantica, Anna Regina and Coriverton) and has played all over Canada and the U.S.A. including such prestigious venues as Madison Square Gardens, Carnegie Hall, Vancouver's Queen Elizabeth Theatre and Expo 67 in Montreal.
