Brent Butt was born and raised in the small farming community of Tisdale, Saskatchewan (population 3000). As the youngest of seven children, one does what one can to be noticed, and at an early age Brent discovered that being funny was a good way to get and hold people's attention. When he was 12 he watched a stand-up comic on television and immediately told his mother that he was going to become a comedian. Not fully understanding what he was talking about, she said, "Go ahead".
Brent honed his comedic storytelling prowess at the local coffee shop, where he and his friends would sit around – literally for hours at a time - discussing everything from world domination, to the most comfortable kind of socks. Brent insists, "Coffee shop conversation was a great way to learn comedy. It's relaxed and conversational and the jokes build naturally without forcing them."
In high school Brent performed stand-up comedy at variety nights and drama nights. When he was 20 a comedy club opened up in nearby Saskatoon, and Brent moved to the city to pursue a career in humour. He moved through the ranks incredibly quickly, and within four months of his first amateur night appearance, he was offered a tour on the road. After a year he was headlining in Toronto, and after only 4 years, he was showcased in his own gala performance at the world's largest international comedy festival - Montreal's JUST FOR LAUGHS.

Hailing from Prince Edward Island, the award-winning Gordie MacKeeman and his Rhythm Boys serve up old-time roots music with an energy level that practically yanks you out of your seat by the collar. Tom Power, host of Deep Roots on CBC, recently called the Rhythm Boys his "Best Discovery Band" at the 2012 East Coast Music Awards. If ever someone was deserving of the nickname "Crazy Legs", it just might be Gordie MacKeeman. His thrilling dance style mixed with great bluegrass vocals, Peter Cann's blistering guitar solos, and the lively multi-instrumental talents of Thomas Webb and Mark Geddes, and Gordie MacKeeman and his Rhythm Boys are a complete entertainment package.
Within months of forming the Rhythm Boys and releasing their self-titled debut CD, the band received two Music PEI awards in 2011 for Roots/Traditional Group of the Year and Instrumental Recording of the Year, and were nominated for Roots/Traditional Group Recording at the 2011 ECMAs.
"These lads from PEI have taken their great musical skill and love for the repertiore and added engaging, sometimes jaw-dropping, stagecraft and showmanship. Man for man there may not be a better roots band playing in Canada today. Booking them is a no-brainer".
– Matthew Large
