Kenny Preston - Drums
Kenny has been one of mainstays of the Victoria music scene, playing in bands like Blues Union (recently inducted into the Royal City Music Project Hall Of Fame), Kitch, RiffRaff, Swinging Richard (with Maxx Watts), The Gene Grooms Project (with Ron Lukawitski), Emma Peel and The Avengers (with Neil Oh Neil) and The Offenders (with Scott Sutherland). He has shared bills with such artists as John Hammond, Amos Garret, Georgia Satellites, James Cotton, Downchild Blues Band, Dr. Hook, Long John Baldry and Delbert McClinton. Ken was once invited onto the stage by legendary blues drummer Sam Lay (Little Walter, Willie Dixon, Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Watters and Paul Butterfield) to play his drums while Sam went upstage to sing, quite an honour.
Del Kunitz - Lead Vocals / Harmonica
A truly consummate bluesman, over the course of his thirty year career Del has shared bills with the likes of Delbert McClinton, James Cotton, Alvin 'Youngblood' Hart, Colin James, Rita Chiarelli, Powder Blues, John Hammond, The Fabulous Thunderbirds and Long John Baldry. Del also has recorded with Hot Cottage, one of Alberta's seminal blues bands, and continues to ply his trade with a crack unit of musicians in Preston McCool.
Scott Sutherland - Lead Guitar / Backup Vocals
Scott plied his musical trade in the Toronto music scene for over 25 years before moving to Victoria in the late 1990s. He has toured extensively throughout Canada and the USA, and has recorded in many world class studios. His love of the blues started with international acts like Rory Gallagher, John Mayall and Eric Clapton, but he refined his skills in the thriving local Toronto blues scene. Over the years, his energetic stage performance was honed to a "T", while sharing the stage with some of the finest players in the business. Scott prides himself on a crisp, clear and distinctive guitar style he is proud to call "his own."
Neil Oh Neil - Tenor Saxophone / Lead Vocals
Neil is a veteran of the Vancouver scene having played with popular bands like Bowser Moon, The Berry Cup Blooze Band and Teen Angel and the Rocking Rebels. Moving to Victoria, Neil played with Duke and The Ducktails and co-founded Emma Peel and The Avengers.
Bob (Boots) Miron - Bass Guitar
For the past two decades or more, Bob has been the first call (friend or foe - take the dough) hired gun. He has played with Harris and the Hotheads, Summer and the Sinners, Emma Peel and the Avengers, Dave Harris and Mainswitch. "Boots" anchors the back-end of Perton McCool with finely-honed flair and style.
