Comments: Exact set list and order unknown. That being said, I believe this was the first concert I ever attended. Well, “big” name concert at the very least. At the time me Mom worked with Ted Trenholm’s Mom and so, I had a connection, however tenuous, with one of the bRonnie King of The Stampedersands playing at the Civic Auditorium that evening. Bond acquitted themselves admirably. Thundermug were a complete unknown but they blew me away. Especially their current hit single Africa (dig that crazy bird)… While I was working on the new (and improved?) Aardvarksaattic.com in general, and this very piece in particular I was curious as to the photograph of the drummer which I took. I knew it had to be Thundermug’s drummer but I had to make sure. So, I did what anybody would do these days when they were curious… I hit the internet. Thundermug’s drummer is, I discovered, Ed Pranskus. A check of the ubiquitous Facebook found an Ed Pranskus alive and well. So, for accuracy sake, I got in touch with Ed and, ultimately, sent him the photo. It was him. He was floored; I was floored. Thirty-eight odd years down the line I actually made a connection with the person who was, in fact, the subject of my first EVER concert photograph.

And just how cool is that?

  1. I also seen the Stampeders on that tour ( first concert in my life- awesome show). Thanks for the set list. If you have any more live photos from that show , I’d love to see them.

    1. Glad you enjoyed the photo and set list. The Stampeders are one heck of a band and never really got their due. I’ll check and see if I have any more photos from that show. I’m pretty sure I have a shot or two of Rich. If you get a chance, check out more of my concert archives. I’ve been to a lot of shows over the years and have photos to go along with quite a few of them.

  2. I have been reading your concert archives. It’s like a happy road trip down memory lane ( MAX WEBSTER,APRIL WINE etc.) . Thanks.

    1. It’s been a hoot compiling it. I was amazed to see how many great bands I have seen in my lifetime. Working on this project has brought back memories from each and every show. Glad you have been enjoying reading it.
