Ginger Reunion

Back in 1969 when the world was watching 'The Ed Sullivan Show', 'The Beverly Hillbillies' and 'Bonanza', when the choices for cars was still Chevrolet, Ford and Chrysler, when we heard about Neil Armstrong being the first man on the moon and also about Woodstock, when we listened to Abbey Road while we were wearing bell bottom jeans and tie-dye shirts, I was in a band called Ginger! For a wonderful week starting on the 31st. of July, 2015 the stars lined up and we all congregated in Regina to play songs we had played together forty-five years ago. Myself and Ryan Arnott, lead singer in the band still live in Regina but the others came from far away to to talk about the past, the present and the future. Bassist Ian Tyler has been living in England since '75 . Drummer Reg Ballagh moved from Regina to Victoria in '73 and then a few years later moved on to Prince Edward Island. Guitarist Terry Blott lives in Oakville Ontario  and roadie Andy Stadnyk lives on Manatoulin Island in Ontario.  Not only were we all together in the same country for the first time in forty -five years, we were actually in the same room!!! We played songs from the old set list. We navigated our way through 'Born In Chicago' 'Dust My Broom' 'Tell Mama', and 'Born Under A Bad Sign' as well as a several others which included an original song with lyrics by Ryan and music by the rest of the band. Such a great week with so many good times reminiscing about those formative years laughing hysterically as we relived those times watching slides and talking enthusiastically about when we could do it again! Thanks to Ryan for suggesting the whole thing and thanks to the rest of the band to make it happen! Here's to the next reunion!!
