Sadly towards the end of 2015 we lost Joy, Doyle’s wife.
This put many things on a hiatus for a time as the group needed time to grieve and support each other.

However, now it is time to move on and for the music to continue. 2016 dates will be coming shortly. 2016 looks to be an entertaining year and we’d be honoured if you would join us!

We had lots of problems last year.

Delores had a bad fall and is still recovering.

Joy (Doyles wife) is facing several more surgeries from breast cancer.

Doyle himself is almost over his 4th back surgery.

Cathy is still trying to cope with new meds for auto immune. She is improving but got some more hills to climb still

All of that said however we are back to practice,with more new songs!
