Growing up in a small community, there was always music in the air. In the family and house I grew up in, my Dad played several musical instruments and we all participated in band and or music lessons. I recall going to Esther, Loverna and New Brigden to dances with my parents and there were always local bands playing.

I believe Marguerite Wilson's Grandpa is one of the members of this band.
