SMC Entertainment Lineup

The HumSingers
Friday, November 16 | 10:00 am

The HumSingers is an a cappella group that formed six years ago when some of its current members, under the direction of Wayne Rollack, gathered 'round a dining table simply to enjoy the camaraderie and sheer pleasure of harmonizing together. Over time, as both the repertoire and its membership grew and changed, the group decided to share their joy of singing as a service project. They continue to donate much of their time and effort to performing at numerous care homes, hospitals, benefits and fundraisers. The HumSingers' eclectic song repertoire is composed of a variety of music genres: madrigals, folk, pop, jazz, sea shanties, sacred and world music. The present group members are: bass singer Corwin Klassen, tenors Wayne Rollack and Al Bond, alto Tammy Lemay and sopranos Sandra Ellis-Rollack and Lorna Roblin. All of its members have been involved in musical experiences both professionally and non-professionally for many years.

Mountain Ridge Band
Saturday, November 17 | 9:45-10:15 am

This band of outlaws first became known for their mischief and shenanigans. While rarely seen now, the band is known to live their days making music in the secluded and illusive mountains of Saskatchewan, getting together occasionally to perform at underground speak-easies such as The Bassment. The Mountain Ridge Band features “Fast Fingers Picker Padalec” on banjo, and his sidekicks, “Mad Dog Doc Carter” on guitar and vocals, “Pick Pocket Frenchie” on fiddle and vocals, “The Swindlin’ Prezident” on bass, “Black-Eyed Slick” on Pedal Steel, “Cheatin’ Lady K” on keys, horns and vocals, and “Wild Man Burnie” on drums. They are often joined by “The Jazz Bandits” horn section. And, should anyone ask, they were never seen here!
