Join Dory and The Weathermen Friday November 24th, for an evening of music and song ! The recent devastating forest fires in Waterton have destroyed a number of cabins at Canyon Church Camp. Canyon Church Camp has been entertaining kids of all ages for over 70 years. The camp needs your help to raise the funds to rebuild the cabins before the camping season starts in 2018. The two part concert will also feature an intermission with a silent auction. Tickets are priced at $20 and will be available at the door. The doors will open at 6:00 pm.
Please help us get the word out by sharing this post ! Thank you !

  And our keyboard player is Bruce Mackay, a U of L prof who also has lots of band experience in the 70's in Ontario.

Dory & The Weathermen is a new configuration of the former Moon Dancer band. Specializing in recognizable 60's and 70's rock and dance music, every song of their 3 set performances are new arrangements that highlight vocals, rhythm and solo work for guitars and keyboards. The lead vocalist is Dory Rossiter, (a winner of Canada's Governor General Award for Community Service, among other honours), and the band's mandate is to not only provide great entertainment for audiences at professional music venues, but to support various charities for dances and concerts: Special Olympics dances, various fundraisers for cancer, Alzheimer's, MS and epilepsy, helping raise money for community playgrounds, and their own annual concert for local food banks.
The band members have decades of musical experience, whether in bands dating back to the 70's, playing in church bands, recording original songs, creating an album of other songwriters' materials, or playing as solo musicians. Allan Wilson (guitar and vocals) was playing as a solo act in the 70's,
Bass player is Reid Seibert, he teaches guitar and English at Chinook High School.   He was in several prominent bands in Lethbridge in the 70's, and once opened for Tina Turner 6 times. Keith Duff started drumming as a teen. Bill Weiler switched to guitar as a teen after starting on trumpet, learning his musical skills from his father, a big band musician. Bruce Mackay (keyboards) has been in one band or another (sometimes two at once) across Canada since 1971.
"We don't copy a song. We make the arrangement our own, and yet the audience recognizes the song in four or eight bars. We love the audience; we want them to see the fun we have in performing so they can recognize the genius of the songwriters we are honouring. We also enjoy the steady development of our arrangements in our rehearsals, they way we try ideas and then step back and let the others contribute a phrase, a tone, a solo or work on a chorus."
"We love what we do. We want to do this forever."
