Very sad to hear about Reggie.  I played keyboards in the "Classic Affair".  Man some wild times and Reggie was my soul brother.  He was a fantastic entertainer and gave his all anywhere we played, including I might add a performance for the royal family at Western Springs Stadium.  Sail on Bro. - Bob Patient
I knew Reggie when he used to visit our nightclub in Christchurch and also I would catch up with him in the North Island.  Reggie was a very good musician.  Sympathies to all the family - Kevin Frewer  (Retalliation, Fantasy Band, Tom Thumb)
(email me your tribute to Reggie and I'll add it in -
