Chromey to tour Lakeside Park - July 22 and 24

Neil Peart's first Slingerland drum kit that he played with Rush from 1974 - 1977 will be on display at Lakeside Park:

  • July 22, from 1-11 p.m.
  • July 24, from noon to 10 p.m.

Read the story in The Standard

Lakeside Park, immortalized in the 1975 Rush song of the same name, is located in St. Catharine's (about 10 miles from Niagara Falls - see map). I've visited this area, and it's beautiful. If you're in the area, it's worth a trip.

Two new kits added to Replicas section

I added two new kits to the Replicas page on my site. Let the owners know what you think!

If you've sent me pictures and descriptions of your kit in the past months, but I haven't posted them yet -- I wanted to let you know that I haven't forgotten about you. Parent and job duties have kept me a little busier than usual these days. If you have questions, feel free to send me a mail.
