Selective Memory

By Staff | Oct 17, 2014

A band of current and former Rugby residents is slated to perform next Saturday.

Selective Memory – a band made up of Terry Brenno on piano/synthesizer/keyboard/vocals, brothers Brian and Carl Weimer (bass and guitar, respectively), brothers Kurt and Kris Eylands (drums and lead guitar, respectively), Stan Hagen (drums), Jan Stroup (guitar) and Colleen Jelsing (piano/keyboard), with assistance from David Trottier and John Mitchell – will perform songs from the ’60s and ’70s, as well as original music, during the fire hall auxiliary fundraiser on Oct. 25.

While not everyone in the lineup is able to come when they do perform, most of the lineup is expected to be on stage for this outing.

“We enjoy coming back to Rugby,” Carl Weimer said. “We also like to play and each other’s company.”

The benefit also hits the band on a personal note, as both the Weimers’ and Mitchell’s dads were members of the Rugby Volunteer Fire Department.

“It’s all for a good cause,” Carl said.

Brenno, Hagen and Carl Weimer – who were members of a former Rugby band, The Wonders of Confusion – formed Selective Memory in 2006, adding Brian Weimer and the Eylands. Jelsing and Stroup came into the fold later.

They have performed every year since 2006.

Selective Memory played during Rugby’s 125th anniversary celebration, raising money for Rugby High School to purchase band instruments in band conductor and music teacher Tilman Hovland’s name.

Selective Memory also played on one of the two stages during the 2013 Village Fair at the Prairie Village Museum.
