Video Documentary on James Leroy and Denim
A few years back I got the idea to make a documentary about James Leroy and Denim. Running this site put me in touch with a lot of people associated with the band, some of who lived nearby to me. In particular Gary Comeau, the original pedal steel guitarist in Denim, has been very forthcoming with providing me with information about the band. After a few years of starts and stops I was finally able to interview Gary and largely from that footage was able to put together a short video about the band. I hope you enjoy it.
On June 1st, in Ottawa, a small group of fans and friends gathered for the premiere of Touch of Magic - The James Leroy and Denim Story. This gathering was probably the closest we’ll probably ever come to a Denim reunion. In attendance for the premiere were original band members Gary Comeau and Dave Oslund, their one-time manager Harvey Glatt, and Ron Leroy, James' brother. Thanks to all who came and helped make this a very special event.
Also, check out Wayne Dunham’s Facebook page on the event.
