Confessions of A Redheaded Coffeeshop Girl | January 28, 2020
Rebecca Perry is an actor, singer and writer based in Toronto. She has worked with a variety of companies across North America in theatre, film, television and voice-over. She has just been cast in her third feature film – Santa's Castle (based on the short stories of L. Frank Baum, author of The Wizard of Oz) – having starred in Brain Power Studios' Forest Fairies (alongside Simon Callow) and God's Best Friend in 2015 and 2016 respectively. She also provided voices for the feature film The Fast and the Furriest, and plays two characters in the forthcoming cartoon series Emojiville. Also in 2016, she toured with Roseneath Theatre's award-winning TYA show The Money Tree (script recently published). Since 2013, Confessions of a Redheaded Coffeeshop Girl (★★★★★ Fringe Guru, The Nouse UK, CBC Radio), created and performed by Perry, has toured Fringes from coast to coast in Canada and in the US, garnering multiple awards, critical acclaim, a profile on Global TV, and a live taping in front of a studio audience for Bell Fibe TV's OnStage On Demand. Confessions toured to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2015 where it sold out its entire run at the prestigious Gilded Balloon, and that success lead to a rural tour of England. The Canadian première for the show was at the Rose Theatre, Brampton, and since then Confessions has toured theatres around Ontario, including performances at Classic Theatre Cobalt, the Sudbury Theatre Centre, the Lighthouse Festival Theatre in Port Dover, and a recent performance out of province at the Imperial Theatre in Saint John, NB.
The Zaniac Show | February 18, 2020
Alex Zerbe dreamed of being a cartoonist, a radio DJ, a stand-up comedian, an actor, and anything else that would give him the attention he craved as an only child. These dreams got put on hold when he became obsessed with the sport of freestlye footbag (Hacky Sack) in high school. After seeing a great freestyler in Portland, OR, Alex was told by his best friend, “You will never be that good.” Alex proved his friend wrong and went on to place 8th at the World Freestyle Footbag Championships, receive a Guinness World Record for a specific freestyle trick and use his passion for the sport to launch a career in the performing arts. He even met his wife, Jane, at a freestyle footbag tournament. Now their most impressive trick is juggling the two cutest children in the world. His show zigzags between a comedic onslaught of absurd ideas and odd skills. Beatboxing, juggling, dancing, singing, music and magic are just a few of the things that led Piers Morgan of America’s Got Talent to call Alex, “The total package.” During the show vegetables are sliced in half by flying playing cards, flaming torches and bowling balls are juggled with ease and every audience volunteer leaves the stage in triumph. In his 15 year career Alex has been awarded two Guinness World Records, appeared on two national television shows (America’s Got Talent and Last Comic Standing), and been voted Seattle’s Funniest Prop Comedian. Visit TheZaniac.com to see Alex in action.
Tom Petty: Damn The Torpedoes | February 22, 2020
The second tribute act will be Tom Petty: Damn the Torpedoes. Tom Petty had the songwriter’s touch; it’s the craft of writing that gets the whole world singing along. Damn the Torpedoes was released 4o years ago; a time when punk, disco, and new wave were exploding. In all that newness, Tom Petty stayed the course and wrote a perfect rock album.
Five Alarm Funk | February 28, 2020
Vancouver, B.C. has always been a musical town. But back in the day, as far as sizzling, soulful funk, it was something of a desert … until some mysterious force drew two young cats together who would change that in a hurry. From their first house party jams, drummer Tayo Branston and guitarist Gabe Boothroyd gathered a community of musicians who shared their love for James Brown, Tower Of Power, Tito Puente, Antibalas, Frank Zappa and other adventurous groove-driven players. They called themselves Five Alarm Funk, drew more than 300 fans to their first gig at a local place called The Fairview Pub, established a residency at Richards On Richards where upwards of 800 attendees would show up each night - to eventually embark on a 37-day, cross-continental track involving 30 shows from Vancouver to Fredericton. Since then, they’ve expanded their lineup to include Eli Bennett on sax, Oliver Gibson on guitar, Tom Towers on congas, Carl Julig on timbales, Kent Wallace on trumpet, Jay Smith on bass, and Jens Christiansen on sax. They’ve broadened their territory to include the U.S., played as far afield as Taiwan, rocked the Riverbend Festival in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and begun releasing EPs and CDs. The most recent of these, 2017’s Sweat, explodes with fiery rhythms, punchy horns and gang-chant vocals that sum up the irresistible essence of this band. They’re now deep into a new project that involves adding all-star guest vocals onto some of the more volatile tracks from their catalog, beginning with a Bootsy Collins appearance. “I’ve been a Bootsy Collins fan ever since I was 15,” Branston marvels. “That track we gave him, ‘Capital City,’ is one of the funkiest things we’ve ever cut. With that experience and our back catalog, you’ll see a lot more of this from us.” With future releases and reissues with big-time rappers and funksters on the horizon, their sights are set on bringing their magic to festivals throughout the world. More sweat, more dancing … more Five Alarm Funk.

JJ VOSS | MARCH 26TH, 2020
Regina’s own country and roots singer/songwriter JJ Voss is proud to announce the upcoming release of his third album, "Come Along With Me," on Mar 20 2020, followed by a Western Canadian tour! His March 26th stop at the EA Rawlinson Centre for the Arts will be an onstage cabaret for a comfortable night of great music, with room for dancing if you get the urge. Inspired by songwriters such as Steve Earle, Jason Isbell, Johnny Cash and Jim Cuddy, Voss aims to make relevant music that addresses social issues, and takes a stand for what’s right. He feels compelled to do something constructive with his voice and through his music. The title track of the album will be released on Valentine’s Day, Feb 14 2020. “My friend and co-writer Dean Kush and I wrote a love song to society called 'Come Along With Me.' It’s a passionate plea for us as individuals to put in the work it takes to be better citizens and to heal the divisions which have weakened us as a benevolent people.” - JJ Voss
Diyet & The Love Soldiers | April 7, 2020
Diyet was born in a tent and spent her childhood “in the bush,” or, rather, was brought up on the ancestral lands of her people in Canada’s Yukon Territory. Coming from a family rooted in traditions but tempered with a good sense of adventurous hippie attitudes, Diyet has created a musical presence that is as diverse as her Southern Tutchone, Tlingit, Japanese and Scottish heritage. Together, Diyet And The Love Soldiers is alternative country, folk, roots and traditional with catchy melodies and deeply-rooted stories. * Recently nominated as Indigenous Songwriter of the year by the Canadian Folk Music Association.

They’re a 5-piece Canadian rock band that draws on Canada's rich, cultural mosaic to create a super fun blend of hard rock, pop, new wave, folk, and blues combined with bagpipes!
