Nelles Van Loon, Ph.D. U of T, retired after a long career teaching English at Ryerson; David Bell, Ph.D. Harvard, retired after a long career in Environmental Studies at York; Lorne Tepperman, Ph.D. Harvard, still teaching Sociology at U of T; Patricia Duffy, lounge singer for twenty years or so [and mother of the lead singer for “Three Days Grace”]. Dave, Patti and Nelles have been working together since the early nineties. Lorne joined about seven years ago. Lorne and Nelles played in the band for the UC Follies in 1963 and Lorne and Dave did some gigs together the year after that. All are members of the Hurricanes, an eighteen piece swing band that rehearses every Monday night. Their repertoire is mostly standards – Gershwin, Rodgers and Hart, Harold Arlen, etc., along with the songs of the great Brazilian composer, Antonio Carlos Jobim.
