Piperazzi on Monday
This is of my old band, Robert Malcolm Alumni. As payment for Leading the Annual Canada Day Parade,
the town where I live would give us the use of this facility for a weekend of practice. As you can see there is a large central hall but also
around the perimiter are 15 double rooms with ensuite. There is also a large dining room and commercial kitchen in an adjoining building.
These weekends were great for getting the band ready for the competition season. We would also bring instructors along at our expense.
Since this place is a ferry ride away from the City (Vancouver), and I was the only member who lived in the area, it made for no distractions and heavy practice.
Unfortunately, both the facility and the band no longer exist.
