It is with great sadness to learn the passing of our dear friend and fellow musician Pete McCormick.
Pete, was a celebrated drummer and like a surprising number of jazz performers in Toronto was a Scot. Inspired by the playing of Gene Krupa (then with the Benny Goodman band), he brought his love of jazz to Canada. Pete is a former drummer of the Climax Jazz Band and added his talents to the Ragweed Jazz Band. He loved to swing – both drums and golf clubs.
