Lakota Ridge

Who are we?

Hard working guys that love to play music. Very few things light up our brains like making music. The band consists of (from left to right) :

  • Robin Smith : Vocals, Guitars, Mandolin
  • Cliff Armitage : Vocals, Drums, Percussion
  • Mark Wroblewski : Vocals, Bass
  • Dave Sluiter : Vocals, Guitars
  • TBD : Keys/Synthesizers

Robin, Cliff and Mark go way way back, some 30 years or so of music making. Dave Sluiter joined in August 2015. Colin joined in April 2023. We play a mix of original songs and cover tunes.

Videos from a few songs from our July 2, 2016 “Picnic in the Park” we put on for friends & family:
Keep Your Hands to Yourself
Phazers Set On Stun (Original)
Southern Man
Booze and Power Tools (Original)
Comfortably Numb
Osmium (Original)

Here is a studio version of “No Wind Tonight”, written by Mark Forest (aka Will Joy), 1995, and still performed by Lakota Ridge.

Here are some Lo-Fi examples from our practice sessions.



We believe covers should capture the essence of the groove and tone of the original while simultaneously being personalized.
