2012 Draws to a Close

…and what a year it’s been for TSB.

This past summer, in particular, has been a rough one. We lost our brother/bandmate Rodi to cancer. Rodi had been with the band since 2002. Words cannot express how much he is missed.

In September, we played a few songs for his celebration of life event in Nelson, his hometown. Rodi’s daughter, Rachel, joined us on stage for a few songs. What a privilege for us. She most certainly inhertited her dad’s talent.

Meantime, we still had a few booked gigs to play. We were fortunate to have two fantastic local musician friends join us as needed…Tim Boulter (The Creeks) and Jon Buller (solo recording artist).

In early December, we officially invited Jon into the band and thankfully he accepted. Jon had a vision of throwing a huge New Year’s dance event in Vernon as a fundraiser. The North Okanagan Hospice Society (hospice house) was the clear choice for where any money raised would go.

The past month has been a whirlwind as we (mostly Jon) have been asking local businesses to help sponsor the event (money and/or door prizes). Big thanks to Jason at Kiss FM and Kristin at the Morning Star for the press!!!

Setup began the morning of the 29th. Tickets are available at the Best Western Vernon Lodge an online from our website. Hope to see you there!!!
