Slim & The Dusters grew out of The Hotheads - same three plus Newman Corey - guitar/vocals in early 1995 (The Hotheads existed for half of 1994 I believe, after Harris Gilmore left). The Dusters existed until 2007 but membership changed from 2002 on - first Gary left - Bob & I carried on with several drummers, Tyler Piercy, Bob Grant, - Bob Miron left, Clark Brendon came in on bass with Bob Grant then Paul Nixon (ex Downchild drummer living in Nanaimo), then John Hunter - drums. Packed it in and started fresh in 2008 with John Hunter - drums, Greg Kennedy - bass as Slim & The Deuces. That band still exists - now Dave, John Hunter, George Fenn - bass & Gary Preston - keys, vocals & harp. DH
The Dusters toured Alberta/Sask a couple of times. We opened for several groups locally too - Kim Mitchell, Jason McCoy (Carole Andrews would pick us to open for unusual bills). We hosted jams at Hermanns, The George & Dragon and The JBI. Played several Blues Bashes. Lots of small local gigs too. DH
We recorded at least one cassette and two CDs too, about half original songs. DH
