I  was in both line-ups of Blues Union.  Both versions of the band (the above photo shows line-up #2) worked very steady for BC Sound Productions, run by the late Dave Ringland, up and down Vancouver Island as well as the major venues of that time, in Victoria.

Blues Union made its mark playing both Chicago-styled blues and British Blues-Rock

The band is, currently, the 2009 inductees (Most Influential Blues Group) into the Royal City Music Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame, based in Victoria, British Columbia.
