I am very pleased and humbled to announce that I have joined forces with a great Calgary band, Dice Deluxe. Having the opportunity to play with these great musicians is under the saddest of circumstances in that my long time friend and former band mate in the Ronnie Hayward Trio, Kevin Herring passed away in March of this year. Kevin will be missed by so many including the guys in Dice Deluxe. The decision has been made by the band to carry on in Kevin's honour and memory. I have been asked to step up as guitarist in the band. I do so knowing I can never replace or match the talent of the great "Blaring Kevin Herring" but will do my best to make him proud and to help keep a band that he was such a huge part of alive and jumping.
