Grandpa's Army

Winnipeg ska band, 1998-2000

Reunited with a few of my former bandmates in late ‘90s Winnipeg ska band Grandpa’s Army!

The band played its ‘last’ show 20 years ago next month (we did a reunion show a couple years later), and getting together after all these years was a blast.

It’s a ridiculous conversation about a band that was never as good as its own hype, featuring Alex Seville (keyboards), Goldwyn Millar (drums), Johnny Perrin (vocals), Doug Feaver (bass), Erica Jacobson (trumpet), James Requeima (tenor sax), Morgan Jones (trombone), and me (guitar)!

This episode brought to you by the Gumshoe Strut’s new Heartbeat EP on Saskatoon Folk Rap Records.
