No Requests Band PhotoThis couple knows how to throw a wedding party!  Picture it:

  • a carnival theme with 7 circus tents
  • a park like setting with huge trees
  • a beef and pig roast
  • the groom wore a kilt
  • the best man was a woman
  • and the bride was awesome!
  • Big Chunk O'Rock played and the crowd danced until the permit ran out.

Did I mention that the bride was awesome?!!!

Special guest band No Requests with the groom on drums, did a great set after not having played together for a year or so. Andy, one of the guitar players from No Requests did a great job sitting in with Big Chunk O'Rock.

June 18

Canadian Water Resources Association annual national function

Lakeview Inn & Suites,
Gimli, Manitoba

The event was sold out with 250 delegates from across Canada and with a couple of special guests (Andy and Robert) from Australia.

We had to move the "Beach Party" indoors because of a thunderstorm. Big Chunk O'Rock played right until midnight. A small but very enthusiastic crowd stuck with with us to the end. Quite a feat given it was a Wednesday night and the conference breakfast and program started at 7 am each day.

Crescentwood Community Club,

Winnipeg band Big Chunk O'Rock at Crescentwood Community ClubFred Penner at Damien's and Kelsey's Social

A great time was had by all!

Over 300 people crowded in to the Crescentwood Community Club. Big Chunk O'Rock had a hoot belting out that Classic Rock.

Fred Penner joined us on stage for several numbers. He still wows the crowd with "The Cat Came Back". Jimmy Ingebrigtsen got up and signed off our first set and Al Simmons made a grand entrance on his horse-bicycle! If anyone got pictures - please send them.

All the best to the young couple!   

March 28

Reunion of original 100 NONS
& Odd Couple members

The Playhouse Theater, Winnipeg

Wow! What a great experience! The show at the Playhouse was awesome but the highlight of the event was renewing acquaintances with many of my musician friends from "the old days".

I had a great opportunity to reconnect with Phil, Susanne, Lina, Rita, Marcel, Louis, Lorraine, Leo Antoine (Duff), Gerry and Adèle. It was unfortunate that Norm (in Gatineau), Ziz (in Australia), Daniel (in Montreal) and BB (in Quebec City) couldn't make it but I did get an opportunity to sing Norm's famous song "The Cowboy's Blues" at the jam session after the gig.

You all still look and sound great! Honest!

Thanks to Susanne and Phil for backing me up on vocals.

Private 25th Wedding Anniversary party (Maria & Gord).    Great Gig!

25 years of marriage and they can still tear up the dance floor. If someone got a video - please send it and we will post it. Full scale embarrassment of their kids will then be complete!
