We will be starting the evening with an open mic portion where we will see some of the following (and maybe more):

  • Sherry Lumsden

Ross Watson and Tim Leacock will be proving sound support over the evening!

The Crazy Lemons

The Cozy Lemons

A few of the current staff at camp have pulled together a few tunes for the evening. It will be good to see them at the Ironwood as the have only been seen at open mic night in Canmore.

3 Gurgitators Travis Colley

3 Gurgitators (Mike Swain, Rob Pearce, Travis Colley sitting in for Tony Swain)

They regurgitate others music - thus the name.

Mike Swain and Rob Pearce met at Hector in 1977 when they were the PIT Canoe and Horse Trippers. Travis Colley worked at camp in the non-summer and has been an active part of the MiM committe for many years (also check out his art in the silent auction).

Between trips they started playing guitar together. When Mike's "little" brother Tony started playing bass the 3Gurgitators were formed but tonight Travis will be filling in.

Doug Waite

Doug Waite

Doug Waite started playing guitar at age 15, and first heard surf music the following year in his high school guitar club, where his language arts teacher, Mr. Leopard, showed him the classic surf tune Pipeline, and explained the term 'reverRRRb'. Doug still sings Land-Locked Surfer, one of his first original songs lamenting the life of a surfer living in southern Alberta. Doug's songs have been played on CBC and CKUA, as well as having numerous songs reach top 10 playlists at university and college radio all across Canada. Doug has studied the Kodaly method of music education at the U. of Calgary, and has taught guitar at Mount Royal University’s Conservatory of Music.
