Went to Aldershot High School in the late 60's and thought the Brass Union was the best band in the world. Did know many of you. You were the biggest influence to me for choosing to go in a Show Band in the 70's out of Hamilton called Coulson or Coulson brothers. (Jack still plays in area) Travelled all of Canada for 9 years. Went on my own in Toronto Piano Bars for many years after that. Remember the publicity shot on the Cochran's front yard on North Shore Blvd. Ran into Paul Goodrow several years ago on my way to Florida. It's good to know you are all doing well.

I was so saddened to hear about the passing of John!! I just last week met his niece (lovely lady)and she brought me up to speed and a tear I did shed. I last saw him play in London On at a bar in the early 80's!! I believe he was with Crackers at the time. I know I am late with condolences but My heart goes out to his wife and family. I know he is greatly missed!! So sad I can't say "high" to an old friend!! I hope all is well with his family!!

After our "JUG Band" opened for the new "Pillar Square" in the YMCA in Hamilton, I spent a lot of time there with the young adult board that ran this facility. I have great memories of this band and that place and this web page has brought back so many more for me. Thanks for memory lane and best of luck to all.

Just "happened" to look at your website.
So many memories. I lived in Hamilton Ont. and the band played at my highschool,and we used to go when playing in other schools,
we used to think the band was the best ever.
June 28th Chicago is appearing in Padova (Italy) I associated the Brass Union with Chicago style, only the Brass Union was better. Too bad it did not last.
Thank you for the good time and the good music. Ciao Daniela

Loved The Brass Union and went to watch practices at the downtown YMCA....a great band to dance to. Had a major "crush" on John Willett, may he rest in peace. A group of nice guys is what I remember with loads of talent!

I had the chance to see Brass Union a few times at our high school in Preston, Ontario. The experience stayed with me. Great showmanship and musicianship delivered with tremendous energy.

I have been a fulltime musician all my life, I have many fond memories of having toured and recorded with John Hannah as we attended St. Rapheals Catholic school in Burlington together. Our mutual friend Gerry Michaud (AKA Peachy"), and I have some great stories and history pertaining to our elementary school days.I first saw John play while he was in a band called The Midnight Hour, we were around 14 yrs. old then. As far as I know the only recording of John singing lead vocals is on a tune I wrote called Bye Bye which was produced by Ian Thomas, Ian commented that John had perfect meter. I also attended M.M.Robinson High where I met and befriended Terry Bramhall, who I still keep in touch with regularly to this day. Terry is a close friend and a wonderful man, a consistantly good bass player who I respect musically as well as a fine, honest and very professional person. I also had the pleasure of sitting in with John Willett and Powerhouse around 2010 at SBB, who a wonderful man who I also respect dearly. My band CRACKERS will always be friends with the Brass Union guys and I wish them all the best.
Love you guys!

The memories are endless and I don't know what growing up would have been like without these wonderful lads... God bless Humble and John, two brothers lost way too soon.
