The summer and fall seasons of 2015 have passed and the cold snowy months of winter are now upon us. But, does the band go into hibernation? No way! Happily, we continue to rehearse.
We are very pleased to announce the newest member to partner with us, none other than the legendary drummer Phil Strong!
Originally from Port Hope, Phil has worked and toured extensively with:
- Jelly Roll Bakery, which included Chris and Ken Whiteley as well as popular Toronto blues man Tony Flaim (Downchild Blues Band)
- the James Hartley Blues Band (managed by Vic Wilson), which included Toronto blues man and bassist Gary Kendal
- Morgan Davis and “The Knights of The Mystic Sea”
- Canadian recording artists, Chester (1973 “You Make My Life A Little Bit Brighter”)
- the Sylvia Tyson CBC TV show
- country music star Myrna Lorrie
- the popular Canadian country-crossover group Prairie Oyster, and many more.
We are so fortunate to have Phil Strong with us.
