A few of the Bands & Performers
I have shared the stage with in the past. To all
Thanks for the Memories
The Inner Light
This was the first band I put together in my last year of high
school. A very talented group that went on to become
Boltz (Charity Brown) achieved some hit singles.
Hiller played with Copper Penny and carries on with
a great Children's
I learned what the road was like by playing across
Canada with Tom Quigley, Jerry Valeriote and Danny Kimpel.
Hourglass I played with
guys during my showband days from 1975 through 1980,
and again for our reunion gigs over the last few
Clip (I'm Clyde & Elvis - radio ad clip is from
for a 2005 reunion show)
Post Hourglass and a few more years on the road
doing my Elvis Shtick. Brian did a great Buddy Holly and Jeff
amazed everyone with his voice and his hair. A great bunch
Two Hourglass keyboard players with state of the art Synth's
(well they were at the time) and back on the northern circuit
once again. Rick Dickert and I had a lot of laughs and
still loved to play.
Funland Band Fairs & Shows across Ontario and into the
States and a northern tour that I'll never forget. The real fun
was watching the smiles on the kids faces
I played as Boogabee Bear with Paul Embro (Mumfrey) and
John Tonin (Woofer).
Backroads Band A lot of Tuesday night
a lot of Rock'n Country across southern
Ontario and a lot of fun.
I played with these boys for a year or so. I Love A Rainy Night - One I sang with the Backroads Boys
Hare is a well known entertainer that still plays a lot
Bruce and I played together on the road
If you see him tell
him Paul says to
sing "Cara Mia". You won't regret it.
Bruce Sings Pretty Woman at a music
reunion bash in Woodstock
Crete a well known Singer/Songwriter and Eugene
Rea I have
shared the stage with these two and they have helped me in the studio. The
River Grand a beautiful song by Nonie
Nonie & Eugene on You Tube

recording projects. His professionalism always shines through. Scott has joined me
in the studio and on stage.
He tours widely
across North America.
Scott played fiddle on this 50's
tune I recorded for my dad.
Don't Try this at home.
In Memory Of
Danny Kimpel Danny was
a very talented guitar player that played in the first full time
road band I joined "The Jades". He helped me in many ways
to get my "Road Legs" and had a wonderful sense of humour.
Sadly he left us while still in his 30's. I'll always
remember his smile and good attitude.
Carson My close
friend in grade 6 through 9. We spent many hours listening to
the likes of Johnny Horton and other artists of the time.
He even inspired me to buy a 4 string tenor guitar so I could
play along and helped me put music to my first songs. I
tried contacting him a few years back only to find he had passed
away at the age of 49. His brother Richard carried on with
something they had planned Its called
John Allan Cameron
Chieftain of the Games
Sadly passed in 2006 I feel lucky to have had the
pleasure of sharing the stage and working with John Allan at the
Fergus Scottish Festival on more than one occasion.
