Boogaloo

Boogaloo, or more correctly, according to guitarist Jeremy Etherington, the Boogaloo Walk Band, was yet another fine rock band from Lethbridge in the 70’s. The members were Gerald Heibert on keys, Sherry Kennedy vocals, Eric Geisreiter drums, Reid Seibert on bass and Jeremy Etherington on guitar. 

Still looking for some audio on these guys and awaiting some copy from the very busy doctor Jeremy but here are some pics to jog your memory.

Frank Slide

Frank Slide - Killer Band

Frank Slide was one of the local bands from Lethbridge Alberta back in the 70’s. They were a band made up of some of the finest players from the area at the time, and in my opinion, one of the best. They were soulful and fun and I loved to go listen to them whenever I was back in town.

Members of the band were: Steve Cross, guitars and vocals; Jeremy Etherington, guitars and vocals, Robbie Berday, drums and vocals, Earl McAuley, keyboards and Bruce Miller, vocals and flute.

I thought I would give you just a taste of what they sounded like, with hopefully more to come. I do not know where this venue was nor do I know the year, and the recording, or at least this version of it is not the best. But you will hear their talent.

Until then….enjoy.

Gimmie That You

My friend Peter Archer, was a big talent in the rough. I miss him for sure.

There were a series of tracks we recorded late night over several weeks at Southern Sound, with some of the best Lethbridge had to offer at the time. However, memory fails me to some degree. I know Robbie Berday (one of my all time favorite drummers) played on them, Jim Williams, perhaps Russ Hauser on piano, maybe even Brad Valgardson on drums (also one of my favorites). If anyone remembers who was involved in these sessions (maybe it was a sign of the times :-)) please let me know.

On this particular track, I know Vern Dorge, a Lethbridge boy who was with Blood Sweat & Tears at the time played tenor sax on this cut. He rocks!
