“There’s a benefit on June 9 at the Port House in Port Credit Ontario, for a soundman who’s a guy I grew up with, Bernie Sandor. I’m going to get up and sing “My Old School” with the tribute band “Pretzel Logic” (which RES 9 drummer Paul DeLong also plays in: and my pal Mike Shotton is lead singer). This will be a great night of music — many bands, including Oakland Stroke (a fantastic Tower of Power cover band) and Hotel California, an Eagles cover band. “
