The Half-Tones at Kingsway


Over 50 Kingsway Lodge residents came out for the Christmas Party last Friday afternoon which featured a special performance by St. Marys group the Half-Tones. The band donated their time to put on a show in honour of former Halftones member and Kingsway resident Andy Hoe, who was also formerly the music director and leader of the St. Marys Marching Band. The group is made up of Ron Coulthard on piano, Kenny Rolston on guitar, Judy Hamilton on saxophone, Tom Osgerby on drums, Alan Lounds on trumpet and Rudy Deighton on keyboard. Pat Rolston also came onstage to lend her vocals for a song. The group played old favourites, many of which were arranged by Hoe, such as “Red Roses for a Blue Lady,” “Taking My Sugar to Tea,” and “Ain’t Misbehavin’.”
