Under My Thumb - New Single Released by The Milkman's Sons
The Milkman's Sons have released their new single "Under My Thumb" recorded live at Casino Regina. This is the first single released from their new DVD/CD "A Night To Remember" now available for download.
This is the live show as recorded at Casino Regina 2015 in support of the Saskatchewan Alzhiemers Society Gala Fundraiser.
"It’s all about remembering special people and supporting an important cause." Said Ken Kupchyk

Three of the four band members have had a family member diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
“Performing at this event is very special for both me and my brother, Ken, because our mother, Alice Kupchyk, passed away last year. She had Alzheimer(’s disease),” explained Mickey Kupchyk. “It is also special for our drummer, Terry Anaka, whose own mother now suffers from Alzheimer’s.”
Sharing their music to benefit the charity and the people the Alzheimer Society supports seemed fitting, he said.
“When our mother was alive, Ken and I would go out to the home where she stayed to play guitar and sing for her and all the other Alzheimer patients,” Kupchyk recalled. “It is amazing how they respond to music and can remember the songs, even if they can’t remember their own family.”
When the society approached The Milkman’s Sons about performing at the annual fundraiser, the band jumped at the opportunity, but insisted on doing it for a “significantly cut rate.”
“We wanted the money to stay with the society as much as possible,” Kupchyk said. “That’s just such a small thing that we can donate. It’s very close and dear to us … We want them to make as much money as possible, so they can help more people.”
The Milkman’s Sons has played at The House of Blues in Chicago, at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts, as well as the Craven Country Jamboree, but the upcoming performance at the Casino Regina Show Lounge will be a highlight in the band’s career, Kupchyk said. “This is one venue that was on our bucket list.”
