Back in the '90s Dan, Richard and I had a little 3-piece band. I was the lead singer and they both did a ton of backing vocals but each of them had one song they sang lead on. To surprise Dan-O on his 60th Birthday (being celebrated during the pandemic restrictions) his daughter Kirsten reached out asking for friends and family to send in videos of well-wishes. Richard and I got together for the first time in decades and hastily slapped together this take on the song Dan used to sing lead on.
~ Happy Birthday Dan-o! You sang it better Buddy.
Performance: Luc Normand & Rich Katsmith

A quick little video I slapped together a couple days after I wrote this song.
See if you can spot the photo-bomb (video-bomb?) of my biggest fan.
Likely will be released on "Sipping Maples".
Rocky Mountain Way
Came across this old video while setting up my new studio. This was many moons ago (2000 I think) at a United Way benefit held at the Palladium (as it was called back then). Friends drew the highest bid (a whopping $25) to get me to go up and do Joe Walsh's Rocky Mountain Way.
It was goofy fun but the band was outstanding (apologies, I don't know their name but recognized more than a few of their faces as gents who worked at Steve's Music downtown Ottawa). Quite the unexpected thrill to share the stage with such incredible talent.
