I remember that night well. Randy, Marc, Brent and I had a great time playing to a really receptive audience. You do not always get that kind of reaction. I guess playing in Randy’s home turf has that sort of advantage.

Here is the amazon link if you want to pick up the album “Vinyl Tap Tour: Every Song Tells a Story“.

While you are at it, why not pick up a copy of Randy’s new Book as well, Tales From Beyond The Tap. It is an insightful retrospective of Randy’s career, including all the ups and downs.

Massey Hall – Randy Bachman Band – Vinyl Tap Tour – March 15, 2014

After opening our ‘Vinyl Tap Live 2014’ season with a show in Oshawa the previous evening, we played Massey Hall the next night. I had played there once before as part of Randy’s JazzThing tour several years ago with the late Jeff Healey and Duke Robillard which was a thrill for sure. Massey Hall originally built in 1896 is an amazing venue with great acoustics.

Currently, the band consists of Randy Bachman (of course), myself and my long time associates (from Cease and Desist), Brent Howard Knudsen and Marc LaFrance. An always a fun performance to do, Randy always ad-libs the show quite a bit. Almost caught us off guard a couple of times.

It was nice to play to a sold out show in such a prestigious venue…

Here are a bunch of Photos taken of the show:
