In the summer of 2003, a stalwart party of musician cavers and caver-audience hauled an unusual collection of caving gear to a ledge in a particularly acoustic cave on Vancouver Island. The guitars, mandolin, flute and harmonica collection were some of the finest, but probably the most unusual equipment ever to disappear from the darkness in the entrance!
The ensuing "concert" was remarkable, owing to the skill of the fine musicians and the spectacular acoustics of the site. From these humble subterranean beginnings, the remarkable Dangerous Dick and the Duckbusters were born!
Taking the original inspiration into the light, the band of cavers and volunteer musicians have produced 3 CD recordings full of tales of the experience in the underground. A professional recording studio and a competent sound engineer has replaced the ledge and the final products have been superb. The results have received critical acclaim worldwide, from both cavers and non-cavers.
Proceeds from sales are directed to the Canadian Cave Conservancy, a non-profit society for protection and conservation of caves and karst in Canada.
