Working as a duo, their stage and song patter will keep you rolling in the aisle - while their musical talent will leave you breathless. From John\'s famous medleys, including "Movie Night in Vinylland - 33 Movie Themes in 5 Minutes," to spot-on impressions of Sean Connery singing "Wild Thing", (as well as his popular rendition of Stuart McLean being, well, Stuart McLean). Wendell will mesmerize with his Chet Atkins virtuosity on guitar, along with favourites such as "Throw Another Fiddle on the Fire." A few duets will even recall the days of Flanders & Swann. Beyond the hilarity, you\'ll be dazzled by their incredible musicianship.
- he and Wendell have added the great Dennis Pendrith on upright bass for this night only! One of Canada\'s finest, he has worked with Lightfoot, Cockburn, Bachman and Murray Mclaughlin.
