    just had to check, there was a band in Winnipeg, 1966 same name. Hope you have found at least some of your equipment.
     
  3. I've got no help for you... but, last summer while out on tour my band's trailer was stolen. We had merch, PA, lighting, gear, luggage, etc... about $40,000 total. My heart goes out to you & yours.

    It's one thing to have something stolen, but when they take the whole trailer... it's hurts like no other.
