The guitar player is Gerry Romaniuk.  Somehow, I was able to talk him into leaving Port Alberni to play with the band.  He was another great guitar player despite having lost the top third of his index finger in a logging accident.  Eventually he bought a Hammond B3 and returned to Port Alberni to master playing it.  Unfortunately, he passed away, as have other Port musicians.

That is Don Lansing on the Ludwig drums.

What  am I doing pretending to be a lead vocalist?
