   The final version of Liverpool-based Sandy Road - Dobson, Westlake and Rice - became Rox with the addition of Haligonian Scott Rogers in September 1978. The band played all over the Atlantic Provinces doing bars and one-nighters. When Rice left the band in April 1979 and joined Titan, Rox continued for a short period as a three-piece band before Dan Rydlewski joined and this version of the band recorded the album, "A Matter Of Time" in 1984. Former Molly Oliver keyboardist, Michael Leggat replaced Rydlewski. Rox played its last gig on New Year's Eve 1987.

   Dobson, Westlake and Rogers reunited in 1992 for a couple of shows and Dobson continued to play an active role in the Halifax music scene until his passing in Febuary of 2022.
