    • Hello David. I would love to have the info for Panda that you have. My email is runningbearrun@hotmail.com

      Anything else you have would be great. Your performance with Tangled Puppet was inspiring to me, and you were missed when you stopped performing shortly after. Hope all is well Dave.

  9. Shawn:

    Another band from 1968.It was an R&B group called “Cold Sweat”. Leroy Hurst (from Windsor formerly with Little Leroy And The Citations) on lead vocals, Fred Stubbs on guitar, Jim Cooke on Bass, Al Nichols on drums, Dan Bullard on Keyboards, Gerry Nagle on saxophone, George Wilson on trumpet and Bob Sass on Flugel Horn, French Horn, Trombone, saxophone, etc. Bruce Robertson took over for the last 3 or four months. In September of 1968 the groups van hit a steer on the highway near Lucan on the way home from a gig in Wingham. Bruce Robertson was killed and three other members of the band were hospitalized. The band never re-formed.


    • I remember when that accident happened. A very sad time.


  10. Shawn:

    Small addition to last entry. Bruce Robertson took over on lead vocals for the last three or four months.

  17. Hi there !

    Great website … I was totally unaware of it ! Nice old picture of us old guys in 1978 with Driftwood !
    After recording in Nashville, my local band was “Gary Stocking & Magnum” and my road band was simply “The Gary Stocking Band”
    I can certainly dig up some old promo pictures and send them in if you’d like.
    Thanks a bunch !
    Gary


  18. Dear Shawn Beaulieu;
    There are some big music fans here at Chatham Classifieds Online. I wanted to ask you if you would put a link to our site on yours and we will put a link to your site on ours.

    Thank You

  19. I used to play in Chatham regularly (30 yrs ago) with a band called “The Grind”. Very fond memories. My favorite place to play back then. Would love to say hi to Judy. Cheers Chatham. Kim


  20. What about The PERPETRATORS???

    George Perpich on Guitars and Stevie Whyte on Drums, some kid played lead guitar and was really good, the lead singer played bass.

    There was some dude who played keyboards also. He wore a headband all the time. They played crazy covers of SRV, Michael Jackson and Rick Jamez. This was like 5 years ago. I’ll bet these dudes are still around.

    Find them!!!!


  21. Great site!!
    I began playing in the Chat. Police Boys Band in /49 Ed Carney used to take 50 or 60 kids every year & grind the fundamentals of music into them.–Best thing that ever happened to me. I enrolled in the R.C.N. & was lucky enough to get an audition with the band. The guy in charge must have seen some inkling of talent ’cause he recomended me for the school of music in Victoria. I got to travel the world, got a great musical education & got paid to do it. After my hitch I returned home & played with pretty well any group that needed a bass player. Formed the New Trend Trio with Bob Wood of CFCO in /62 . Played in the Concert band for 20 yrs. In /80 left Chat. for Brazil, stopped in Edmonton on the way & found out what a weekend was really for. Hadn’t played in 30 yrs, went to a Navy Band reunion in 2011 –met up with some old buddies –got the urge to play again & bought a bass. Now in the process of forming calouses.
    Stay tuned Ed Foy agefoy@gmail.com
