Two`s A Pair ( And Three`s Not Fair)
Papa Bear's, as they were commonly called, were a good time band that borrowed form previous eras, coming off like a cross between Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks and the New Vaudeville Band. Rhythm guitarist/banjoist Craig Wood was "Papa Bear".
They had some very serious musicians in their ranks, including drummer Kat Hendrickse, who would play on countless sessions and groups coming out of Vancouver, including Tom Northcott and Heart.
Organist Robbie King is one of the kingpins in the Vancouver music scenes, with considerable talent on his instrument and as an arranger/producer.
Were from Seattle, but moved to Burnaby just outside of Vancouver in 1966. We played in Dante's Inferno as the warmup band for Country Joe and the Fish and The Peanut Butter Conspiracy
