One of Campbell River’s most popular and successful bands

Playing the name game in Campbell River’s rock and roll history

Reunion will rock the night away bringing back memories of the 70s and 80s

Campbell River’s rock and roll pedigree resulted in a mistaken billing in the recreation guide.

Reunion is the band who will play at the Museum’s fundraiser dance on Oct. 22, not The Rogues.

The two bands however, do have a connection.

The Rogues were a local Campbell River high school band that formed in 1962. They were one of the top amateur bands of the time, and participated in a provincial competition of 130 bands where they came in third.

Norm Fair says that they “came within inches of getting a recording contract.”

The Rogues members separated, then regrouped after a few years under the name Reunion, and their music reflects the style of a decade or so later.

They had a big following in Victoria at places like the Purple Onion and the Club Tango.

Fair says that The Rogues and Reunion have volunteered their music and have raised tens of thousands of dollars for local causes over the years.

“We’re still donating our time,” he says, “We’re still crazy after all these years.”

Current Reunion band members will rock the night away bringing back memories of the 70s and 80s.

The dance is being held at the Sportsplex on Saturday, Oct. 22 as a major fundraiser for the Museum, which as a non profit organization has been hit hard by reduced gaming funding this year.  Tickets are on sale at the Museum and are expected to sell out quickly.  The Museum is open 10-5 daily.  Call 250-287-3103 for further information.
