Calgary & Regina/June 15&16th/2018
These were our 3rd & 4th gigs of 2018 respectively. We flew out late on Thursday, June 14th from Toronto, arriving at half past midnight in Calgary. Everyone hit the sack as soon as we arrived-after all, it was really 3A.M. our time…The next morning we had an early meeting at 11A.M., grabbed lunch, and readied ourselves for soundcheck at 4. By now all 3 bands-Helix, The Killer Dwarfs, and Kickaxe were all wandering around the casino ballroom backstage, so of course it was all “Hi! Howsitgoing? What’s new? Great to be playing with you! etc etc. A real family reunion. That night’s show was a great success and it was at the ned that Brian Gilstrom of Kickaxe told me that the 3 band line-up was already booked at a major venue for next March 2019. Coolio!
The next morning we were on the plane for Regina by about 11A.M., arriving in the Royal City around 1:30P.M. Had another smokin’ show and flew home the next morning at 5:30A.M. In and out-like sex.
