How do you measure success? Money, fame, adulation? Well, being a small time musician doesn't afford much of that. On the other hand getting to play in a band with your son - that's a bit of Rock 'n Roll heaven.

From our promo...

Vaughn Thorsteinson - Guitar, Bass, Vocals, and Harmonica.

Vaughn has played in a variety of country, rock and folk groups. In the sixties he played with Canadian teen idol Bobby Curtola. Recently he has played with The Electric Squid and The Lucre Brothers.

Adrian Kuryliw - Bass, Harmonica, Woodwinds.

Adrian is a multi-instrumentalist with interests in jazz and blues. His experience includes The Lucre Brothers and Buffalo Jump.

Ken Storie - Guitar, Bass & Vocals. Ken got his start in the late sixties playing with Blind Justice, Clown and the Eighth Street Bridge in the thriving Brandon and district Teen Dance scene. More recently he was a founding member of local rock group Billy.

Geoff Storie - Drums & Vocals.

Geoff brings a young man's perspective to the group. He too, however, has gained a wide range of experience. His background includes such diverse activities as High School choir and playing for local Van Halen cover band Whalen.

This was fun for several reasons. I got to play with Geoff, I really liked the materials, Vaughn and I got to do the whole dual guitar things, and Adrian was just an all-round good musician. We weren't together long enough to really hit a stride and didn't get a lot of gigs, but we were all doing it for the right reasons. Geoff moved to Calgary and it just sort of ended.
