We were very sad to get the news last month of the passing of Doug Barron who, among many other things, was a former cohost of CBC Weekend Mornings out of Halifax NS. Doug was supportive of our band and would send us positive messages saying how he enjoyed our music. We had discussed the possibility of a joint show with his band and had made tentative plans to pursue that this year. RIP Doug and condolences to family and friends.
In band news, original member Joe Bonnell has left the band and we wish him all the best in future endeavours and thank him for all his outstanding contributions to our music and shows over the years.
Our August 30 outdoor show was rained out but we did get to perform on the rain date of Monday September 4. We closed off the Fredericton Northside Concert Series sponsored by Business Fredericton North with a fun performance where we played 22 original Free to Grow numbers. We even played the song Miracle Man in front of the man himself and I had an opportunity to test out my new Insta 360 X3 camera and make a video of that part of the event. Friend of the band Doug Schwartz took some video and we have been using it to make some shorts on YouTube and Reels on Facebook. We'd love it if you subscribed to us on YouTube and followed us on Facebook if you haven't already done so.
Peace and Love to All
