Reunion – the tireless, ageless Rock n’ Roll band – will be playing the Quinsam Hotel (locally known as The Quinnie) Friday and Saturday.

They will also host the Saturday Jam from 3 to 6 p.m. and Campbell River’s oldest  Rock and Roll band The Rogues with it’s original members are going to play a set at the Jam.

For over 40 years Reunion has been rockin’ and rollin’ and have opened for and played with such International artists as K.D. Lang , Trooper, Prism, The Guess Who, Doug and the Slugs, Downchild Blues Band and The Powder Blues.

One of the headliners at the Moon Mountain Festival in Washington state last year, they are preparing to once again head south of the border  later in 2013.

The seven-piece band consists of Wes “Shoeless” Pickthall on Drums; Brian “fuzz” Morissette on Rhythm Guitar and Vocals; Glenn Gark on lead guitar and vocals; Ray Gonzales on Sax with Steve Sandholm on Bass, Mike Austin on keyboards and Ron Aitchison on lead vocals.
