CD Update

The band Dinny and The Allstars Live at The Lanc CD has been very successful. We have sold more than 3/4 of our Cd's. This is a fantastic surprise for us. We were hoping for it to be a success, but did not think it would go over this well for our first try. 

We had a fantastic band full of very talented musicians which made it so great. Our technical staff did a marvelous job on the technical end of it. It was a little difficult getting started as the power went on the first try due to a bad storm. However 2 weeks later on May 9th we recorded it and all was a great success.

Thanks to the band, tech staff and our wonderful fans in Kitchener and our Toronto fans who travelled out to Kitchener on the recording date.

June Hill - we miss you dearly

It is with a very heavy heart that I have just read of June Hill's passing. 
She was a very dear, sweet and loving person.
She made friends with me back in 2000 at The Rex. 
 I was by myself and within a few moments she made me feel 
as if I always known her.  She introduced me to her 
great husband Ted who has always been so sweet to me.
 I commented on the piano player and  she quickly responded and told 
me it was her son Peter Hill.  You could see she was very proud of him. 
At the end of the show she invited me to join them for dinner seeing 
that I was by myself.  I did and also many times after that.  

June and Ted always came out to support Brian's gigs and 
my birthday bashes  that Brian would surprise me with.  
We will miss her dearly.  She always had such a warm and 
friendly smile and always made you feel so special.  

Our love goes out to Ted, Peter and family.  
They must be heart broken to say the least.

We love you so much June you were so special to us. 
 Love Dorine & Brian Dinsdale
