This picture of Ballroom Zombies was taken sometime around 1994 or so.

Band members at the time included:

Glam band Ballroom Zombies started off small but became Winnipeg's talk of the town by the late '90s.

Hairdresser Robin Black, originally from Pinawa, MB, met the Garinger brothers at a party and they decided to form a band together. Mark Sawatsky was a client of Robin's who filled out the drum spot.

Ballroom Zombies became manically successful in Winnipeg and beyond through touring, especially in Toronto. They released a CD, Jojo, in 1996. The video single from the album (played on Muchmusic) was "Twiddle Bug."

But Black wanted to make the act glammier and the rest of the band didn't, so in December 1997 he and the band parted ways amicably.

Robin went to Toronto where he formed Robin Black And The Intergalactic Rock Stars, later to be known as just Robin Black. The rest of the band rounded up yet another Garinger brother, Buck, formerly of punk band Riverdale High, to be their new lead vocalist, and they rechristened themselves The Harlots.

Here's a pic of Robin Black when he was with Ballroom Zombies at Ozzy's with Beau Hajavitch.
