Brian Kiesman sadly passed away in his sleep on his fishboat, INGIJBORG K on March 22, 2004. He was a well known and very successful hard working fisherman on B.C.'s  Northcoast for over 30 years.  He is survived by his loving wife, Diane Kiesman (nee Swanson) and their children Kari and Jade along with five Grandchildren.

I was the Hounds manager for about five months during their time.  I was present when the upper photo  was taken.

I have several posters I had made for their gigs.  I booked the Hounds and drove their bus all through BC. They also played the battle of the bands at the PNE in Van.

Eric says his voice is still very good and plays some gigs.

David still plays his Hammond B3 in Rupert most weekends.

Gary is wondering around the lower main land.  The rat plays very rough R&R on native lands around Terrace.

Brian, my dear friend, died last year on his boat on the west coast.

I'm retired in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, living a life of leisure, writing songs and marshaling at the Palmilla Golf Course.
