Les Megatones

Montreal, Quebec

Of the many dance bands that Quebec youth experienced in the 1960s, the Megatones were among the pioneers in more than one way.  They were the first set of this generation that would be lyrical to pass the famous sound of electric guitars, echoed from the dance hall to the recording studio.  Legend has it that the guitarist Denis Champoux first appealed to his overflowing imagination and that he tampered with his amplifier to get the desired sound, before acquiring the famous Écholette box, an essential tool for any group worthy of the name during the first half of the decade. biographiesartistesquebecois
