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:

The First Time that Cease and Desist Played with Randy Bachman

This interesting tidbit of information was recently found. It is a schedule that shows the first time that Cease and Desist played on the same stage with Randy Bachman. This was back on May 6, 1993. Twenty years ago.

This is pretty much the first time Cease and Desist ever played with Randy Bachman 1993
