Thx to fellow Houserocker members Earle Gibson, Neil Evans, Bill (Bilbozo) Smith, Jay Stevens, Todd Sacerty for rockin on the stage... like to thank Brian Beatty's sister Michelle Lambert for joining him on stage for a tune on backup vocals... One of things way back when musically was that u had to play cover tunes in order to work ...nobody really wanted to hear originals that much in the club scene... we as a band just wanted everybody to rock "n" roll.....we also have the greatest fans, family, and friends from around this planet if u ask me...we just like to say "Thank You." ... thanks to all the sponsors especially Eye Mean Graphics gang, Sandra Dunn, Sharon Heller, Sylvia Smith, Tina Coldwell Gene Danials and all who's involved for helping out with this charity event for the Nanaimo's Child Development Centre... Over the years I have been pretty spoiled workin some of Nanaimo's great musicians and we have lost some great musical houserocker comrades over the years... so a little 20 year rockin and thoughts from tonights recording goes out to them... to all our friends, family and fans that love rock n roll ...here's from the boyz in the band ...we hope you enjoy! keep rockin! producer and drummer of the The Houserockers - Kevin (Bud) Marcy
