  • Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony
    The Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony was founded out of necessity; in 1945, the Grand Philharmonic Choir was preparing a recital and needed tuneful accompaniment for the harmonic voices. Once its backup duty was over, however, the newly convened orchestra quickly established itself as an independent source for both classical and pops concerts performing more than 100 concerts annually in the Waterloo region. Now home to 52 on-staff musicians, the orchestra continues its decades-long tradition at venues around Kitchener, Waterloo, Guelph, and Cambridge. From his position as music director, Edwin Outwater oversees the joyful noise, which ranges from baroque to Beethoven to the Beatles and Broadway. Since assuming the role in 2007, Outwater has been one of the orchestra's most vigorous boosters, arranging the group's first commercial recording in a decade, engineering an exploration of prog rock in collaboration with the Institute for Quantum Computing, and knitting sweaters for each musician's instrument.

  • Yuk Yuk's International Stand-Up Comedy
    Since its Toronto location opened in 1976, Yuk Yuk's has been a collective launching pad for such comedy heavyweights as Jim Carrey, Rick Moranis, and Russell Peters. All of Yuk Yuk's laugh-establishments invite seasoned jokesters and up-and-coming comedians to their stages every weekend for up to four days of high hilarity and three nights of cozy lodging atop their cocktail tables. Many Yuk Yuk's locations offer drinks, dinner, or bar fare during the show, but those interested in dining should contact their club of choice to find out about reservations.

  • Union Events (Toronto)
    Initially conceived as a one-off event in 2010, The Smoker's Club has since expanded, presenting fans with tours that unite skilled rappers and expert beat makers. One of the original members of the Wu-Tang Clan, Grammy-winning wordsmith Method Man spouts off dexterous rhymes in a gravely voice obtained by chugging asphalt smoothies everyday for breakfast. Curren$y gently cradles ears with laid-back flow, and frequent Smoker's Club collaborators such as Smoke DZA and Fiend buoy the evening with additional verbal fireworks. The Kool Haus provides a vibrant environment for the musical proceedings, ensconcing guests in a hip nightclub atmosphere with music mixed by Toronto-bred DJ Agile. An enormous dance floor proffers guests with ample space for unabashed rug cutting and wind sprints between marching bands.

  • Sinking Ship Entertainment
    The popular preschool television series Roll Play comes to life in Roll Play Live Animal Party, a vibrant concert tour that engages toddlers and toddler overlords in frolicking exercises of the imagination. Featuring live performances from the effervescent duo Splash'N Boots—winners of the coveted Canadian Children’s Group of The Year award—the interactive smile stampede of Roll Play Live Animal Party allows children to revel in their animalistic instincts without the need to pack tranquilizer darts. Audience members can have their faces painted in the likenesses of adorable critters before the stage is drenched in black lights, revealing ultraviolet animal designs lit up under the expanses of the darkened theatre. As the musical adventure bounds along, kids are encouraged to wail like monkeys, laugh like hyenas, and extrapolate like caffeinated dolphins to the tunes of their favourite Roll Play songs. At the end of the adventure, nippers and snappers take part in the evening's swan song by creating their own boisterous Roll Play song.

  • Jorge Martinez with Special Guest Oscar Lopez
    Costa Rican Jorge Strunz and Iranian Ardeshir Farah first united their guitars and their surnames into an improvisation-flecked duo in 1980, blending Afro-Latin, Middle Eastern, and jazz styles. Their 1992 album Américas vaulted to international attention with its infectious Afrocuban, Gypsy, and pre-Columbian rhythms, collecting both Billboard's World Music Album of the Year award and a Grammy nomination. With the assistance of Leah Zeger on violin and Majeed Ghorbani on percussion, Strunz and Farah's melodies vault up and down exotically modulated scales. Though their fingers are fluent in flamenco, the duo's signature style is saturated with international influences sharing only a common disregard for speed limits.

  • Live Nation Ontario Concerts GP, Inc.
    With a backdrop of Lake Ontario and the city skyline, Echo Beach ignites its sophomore season with the Sam Roberts Band, who the Montreal Gazette proclaimed “straight-on, loud rock n’ roll at its most crowd-pleasing.” The outfit’s live shows draw from a four-LP-deep discography in energetic performances that led Spinner.com to crown them a Can’t Miss Act. As dusk recedes into twinkling night, the outdoor stage's moody lighting adds atmosphere to early hits such as the folksy “Brother Down” as well as new material from last year’s Collider. Recorded in Chicago with producer Brian Deck, known for his work with Modest Mouse and Iron and Wine, the album marked new terrain for the chart-toppers and multi-Juno winners. Tracks such as “The Last Crusade” brew a soulful atmosphere by interweaving horn-fed funk with the needling guitar of Dave Nugent.
