In Memory of

Danny Tripper
Ron (Bones, Bono) McRobbie

I met Dan in Kitsilano in 1968 after I broke up with the band I was in called The Family Dogs.  I had a gig at a blues club in downtown Vancouver called the Harlem Nocturne and needed a guitar player, so Dan and I got together and called ourselves the Dynatones. We also played at the first Easter be-in at Stanley Park and at the Elegant Parlor night club that was owned by Tommy Chong's parents, The Last Chance Saloon, Rohan's, the Golden Palace and Kits Theatre in Kits.

We played as the Dynatones until around 1971.  We got together again as Hotwire around 1974 to 1976 and played the bar scene in North Vancouver and Vancouver strip clubs.

After that I played on and off with the Danny Tripper Band for many years at the American Hotel and The Waterfront Night Club, etc.
