This is the Happy Pals of Toronto in full swing, its an eight piece Band, playing "Hot" Old Dance Hall Music in Grossman''s Tavern, Toronto, Canada.
This is the latest CD released with Brian Carrick, and its with "The Happy Pals", in Toronto, Canada.
The Happy Pals is run by Patrick Tevlin who took up leadership of the band after the "Great" CLIFF ''''KID'''' BASTIEN passed away.
I Highly recommend this CD ''''if you like your music'''' ROUGH, EXCITING AND SWINGING LIKE HELL SO MUCH, YOU WOULD SWARE TO GOD THE BAND WAS BORN AND BRED IN NEW ORLEANS.
I remember in early 1973-74 period, at the New Orleans Jazz Festival,held in the Fairgrounds out past Tulane and City Park, Kid Thomas Valentine watching and listening to "Kid Bastion" and the band playing Kid Thomas.
It was a Real Blast when standing near "Kid Thomas" listening to him, as he was chuckling away and saying to Joe ''''Twat'''' Butler Quote "Goddam it Man, THEY SOUNDS LIKE ME". Unquote
