Summer festivals, to call a square dance at each, he envisioned having a
top notch band to back him up, and to provide outstanding enjoyment for
the dancers.
 
With this goal in mind, he called friends, who had the talent and would enjoy getting together to provide the old time music which was needed, and which we all love.
 
We all got together, first in Courtney, at the Vancouver Island Music Fest, and a week later at the Island Folk Fest, thoroughly enjoyed both, and are now hosting square dances at 7:30 P.M. on the first Friday of each month at The Hub in Cowichan Station.
