A couple of weeks ago Don Ramsay, the former frontman of Donny & the Moondogs, died at his home in Vancouver, the victim of a tragic act of violence allegedly committed by his mentally ill son. His wife Wendy was badly injured in the same attack. Here’s a link to the initial post.

Don, along with the rest of the Moondogs, was a long-time presence on the Regina music scene. Today at the Exchange, family, friends, colleagues and fans will gather to celebrate his life and his love of music. The event gets going with a jam at 4 p.m. and will run into the evening. And the Grey Cup will be on next door in the Club, so you’ll be able to check in on the game too if you’re so inclined.
