Muskoka SummerFest, Windsor International Buskerfest, fest fest fest...

Well, I left Toronto last week and haven't been back much since, and don't expect to be home much in the near future, it seems! This is the part where the tourin' starts.

Last weekend I was in beautiful sunny Muskoka for the annual Muskoka Summerfest, an awesome festival in the heart of Bracebridge right on lake Muskoka. The crowds were great, the atmosphere was fantastic and overall a really fun time.

This weekend I'm off to the Windsor International Buskerfest, which is sure to be a real fun time. I'm looking forward to seeing some awesome folks again and meeting some new people. I will definitely be updated this journal between now and the fest to let you all know how it goes!

Currently, I'm at home cutting together a demo-reel! I'm amazed I've been working this long without one! I've gotten some footage together and will be shooting some more in the near future, but as it stands, I want something up ASAP and the footage I have currently is really good. It's coming along nicely, although, it's pretty obvious why I don't work in film full-time; editing takes me forever because I have zero interest in sitting at a computer for hours on end. I'd much rather be entertaining crowds. Ha ha.

Next week I'll be road trippin' with the Cow Guys to New Brunswick! I love out East! I can't wait to eat more oysters!

Canada Day

Hi everyone!

Hope you all had a great Canada Day. I sure did!
This year, I was lucky enough to have the day off from gigs to check out the busking on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. I'd never been to Ottawa for our national holiday and found it to be an amazing experience. The crowds were friendly, amazingly patriotic and very enthusiastic. I gave some wonderful performances and the audiences really loved my act!

Something to look forward to in August when I will be back for the Super Ex!

This weekend I'm in Toronto, working at the Harbourfront pitch. Next weekend is the Muskoka Summerfest! It is sure to be a blast. Looking forward to performing with Errheads again. They are brilliant.
