Regina tribute video needs your votes

HMCS Regina Juno lip sync

Five HMCS Regina sailors rock out “Takin’ Care of Business” for the Bachman Turner Overdrive tribute video contest. The winner of the contest will be featured on the Juno Awards March 30. Regina sailors are looking for more votes to pull them from second place to first.

Legendary Canadian classic rock band Bachman-Turner Overdrive (BTO) is being inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame this year. To celebrate this historic accomplishment, the 2014 Juno Awards have organized a contest where people can submit a tribute music video of themselves “Takin’ Care of Business” after BTO’s famous hit song of the same name.

Contributing to the contest is HMCS Regina’s rock band Pile O Bones, with a special video of the band rockin’ it on the ship. Regina is currently conducting counter-terrorism and maritime security operations at sea off the coast of Africa during Operation Artemis.

Band members are PO1 Joseph Scheubel (lead singer), PO1 Keith Muffty (bass guitar), PO2 James Ward (rhythm guitar and backing vocals), Lt(N) Colin Pilkey (lead guitar and backing vocals) and LS Corey Pettipas (drums).

Production of the tribute music video was a collaborative effort of the entire ship’s company, including the CH-124 Sea King Helicopter Air Detachment, who incorporated the aerial video shoot within their required training schedule.

The video was also produced in a highly compressed timeline to meet the submission deadline of the Juno Awards contest.
Pile O Bones “Takin’ Care of Business” tribute music video has garnered enough votes online to be in second place, but they need support to reach number one and win the contest. The winner will be announced during the 2014 Juno Awards broadcast at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, March 30.

“Creating this music video has been a great experience for the entire band and easily one of the highlights of my career in the navy,” said PO1 Joseph Scheubel. “The band is grateful and humbled by the overwhelming support received from ashore in response to this video and we encourage people to keep voting for us so we can win this contest.”

“Takin’ Care of Business” is often referred to as the Unofficial Provincial Rock Anthem of Manitoba. It was written by founding member Randy Bachman and was first recorded by BTO for their 1973 album Bachman-Turner Overdrive II. It reached #12 on the Billboard single charts and #3 on the Canadian charts that year, becoming one of the band’s most enduring and well-known songs.
