Local Music Supporter Greg Peltz Passes

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of local music supporter Greg Peltz, who lost his battle with cancer on Thursday July 20, 2017. He was known as a hardcore fan and hosted wonderful music parties in his amazing barn. Our condolences to his family and friends.

We will post more information here as it comes.

A word from Lou, our blogger:
Greg was a wonderful man who always had a smile for everybody. I loved going to his incredible parties and experiencing fabulous music. He was always a friendly, gracious host and his love of music was infectious. I'll miss him greatly.
There were a number of touching comments on social media:
He brought joy and fun into our lives through his amazing hospitality and love of music and parties. We have wonderful memories of our times at his farm in sunshine and rain (but mostly rain!) enjoying great music and even better company.
You were a true gentleman, a kind soul and the kind of guy that pulled his community together like no one I know
You were always an amazing neighbour...always willing to lend some advice, a tool, some labour....anything at all. You were very much like a big brother to me dude and I appreciated that more than you would ever know. You're going to be missed greatly.
In this life you gave it your all Greg with many good friends to show how much you are loved! 
Here's a video from his YouTube page.
