Len Ringwald

Keyboards, vocals

Len comes from a musical family, his dad played guitar at barn dances and his brother is a pedal steel player with the likes of Gordon Lightfoot, Anne Murray and Western Swing Authority. Len started learning music in high school playing alto sax in the orchestra and stage band, taking private lessons under the direction of Mike Bergauer Sr. Len was honoured by winning the music achievement award and scholarship at his high school graduation. During that time, he also was playing sax with bands in the Opus World of Music Company. Len took a hiatus from playing in the mid ‘80’s to focus on career and family at which point he bought an electric keyboard and taught himself a few chords. In the early ‘90’s Len started jamming with a few old friends and was part of “The Posse”. He was invited to join a band called “Tone to the Bone” doing vocals, sax and some keyboard. During a great 10 year run doing a lot of corporate work, the band changed its name back to its original, “Group Therapy”. They disbanded in 2007. Len joined “Another Blind Date”, doing performances at the Waterloo Car Shows and gigs at Little Lulus. Always wanting to go back to his horn band roots, this time as the keyboard player and vocalist, he re-formed Group Therapy. He enlisted old friends from high school adding a 4-piece horn section, the OCD Horns.
