Hey Romeo just ap­peared at Westerner Days in Red Deer and right be­fore the Drumheller show, the band will be play­ing with High Val­ley in Par­adise Hill, Sask., a small town out­side of Lloy­d­min­ster.

For Hey Romeo fans, more new mu­sic is on the way.

“Dar­ren Gus­nowsky and I from Hey Romeo have been writ­ing mu­sic for a new project and have had a cou­ple of trips to Nashville to write with our favourite writ­ers there,” said Rob Shapiro, key­boardist for the coun­try-pop band, in an email in­ter­view.

“Now we have nar­rowed the new mu­sic down to our favourites and are in the mid­dle of bring­ing them to life in our home stu­dios.”

Shapiro him­self has been busy pro­duc­ing new hits as a free­lancer.

“This sum­mer I also spent some time free­lanc­ing, help­ing out a friend, Aaron Good­vin and played the Nashville North at the Cal­gary Stam­pede and at Cavendish Beach in Prince Ed­ward Is­land,” re­counted Shapiro. “I ap­peared in his new video called Lonely Drum which ac­tu­ally just went gold this week, so that was a blast.”

Hey Romeo is set to head to the CCMA’s in Saska­toon this year and are look­ing for­ward to it.

Erik and Joy Bjorn have been “over the top” this past while as their son and his fam­ily from Am­s­ter­dam have ar­rived for a visit. Ryan and Melissa Bjorn, with their chil­dren Kris­ti­aan and Kather­ine, are a wel­come short-term y ad­di­tion to the Craigmyle Bjorn fam­ily. The Bjorn fam­ily has been very busy catch­ing up with fam­ily at a re­u­nion at Gull Lake; en­joy­ing the Tyrrell Mu­seum; the Row­ley Ghost Walk; at­tend­ing the Pas­sion Play and Rose­bud Theatre; tour­ing the Banff, Jasper and Columbia Ice Field area; as well as many other Al­berta at­trac­tions. Joy and Erik have thor­oughly en­joyed this op­por­tu­nity to re­con­nect with their Euro­pean lo­cated fam­ily (es­pe­cially the two grand­chil­dren), but I sus­pect will be ready for a “rest” once they are back to quiet Craigmyle liv­ing.

The Craigmyle His­toric So­ci­ety will be hold­ing their next meet­ing on Tues­day, Au­gust 15 at 7:00 pm. Busi­ness will con­sist of plan­ning for the Pump­kin Fest (hope­fully, de­pend­ing on suc­cess of pump­kin grow­ers); the fall pan­cake break­fasts; and other on­go­ing projects. All in­ter­ested per­sons are in­vited to come out and be a part of this group.

A num­ber of lo­cal folk at­tended the Cel­e­bra­tion of Life event for San­dra Smyth held at the Poplar Ridge Com­mu­nity Cen­ter out­side of Red Deer on Mon­day, July 31. A fine trib­ute was given by fam­ily and friends for this gen­uine soul who will be missed by so many.

The sum­mer­time Cof­fee Break has been a very suc­cess­ful event. All are wel­come to come out and en­joy this twice weekly no-charge event tak­ing place on Tues­day and Thurs­day morn­ings from 9:30-11:00 am. Many po­lit­i­cal and world prob­lems are re­solved at the Craigmyle Cof­fee Break!

Birth­day greet­ings go out to Brad Kent­ner and Iris Faech­ner on Au­gust 11; Grant Stu­ber on Au­gust 13; Ludy Moe on Au­gust 14; and John Cran­ton on Au­gust 16. Have a great day!

Drumheller’s own Rob Shapiro and band Hey Romeo will be re­turn­ing to the val­ley as the open­ing act for Randy Bach­man on Au­gust 26.
