Cal Batchelor

Deceased - Confirmed: Jun. 4, 2021 (Archived)
July 24 1946 - December 18 2015

Instruments: Guitar, Vocals, Bass details

Cal has moved to Victoria. No gigs planned at the moment, but loving the Island Life. Living in James Bay, near the ocean and jamming with a couple of old pals, Art Horsman and Reid Hudson...Art, a long-time friend of Cal still keeping his chops up on drums and Reid, while working out with his bandmates from May Blitz in Vancouver, is jamming with Cal and Art on Bass. Just having fun in Art's music room and looking forward to a long, hot summer on the Island.

Art has been in a number of bands over the years, as has Reid, so check out the Royal City Music Project site, which gives some insight into the Island Scene over the years and provides a lot of Victoria musical history.

Cal passed away December 20, 2015
