Cross Country Show band

 Biggar Majestic Theatre 

Sunday April 22 - Majestic Theatre, Biggar - 7:00 pm - Tickets $30.00

The  Cross Country Show Band covers not only a wide generation of country  music but also a lot of Western Canada with dedicated and professional  musicians spread from West of Calgary AB to East of Saskatoon SK. The  band was started with a vision of Keith McConnell, who with a very  successful career in music handpicked friends and fellow musicians  together for a band that not only had been fellow band members but also  friends who shared the same vision, i.e.: ethics, volume control,  professionalism and onstage dress code. They also let the singers sing  and the musicians complement the singers. Keith McConnell is an  accomplished steel guitar player, dobro, vocals, lead and rhythm guitar  and also passes his talent on to other people through instruction. Karen  Blackwell Jones plays keyboards, sings lead and harmonies. Another  versatile player, Chris Studer gives the bass line, lead vocals and  harmonies plus the tasteful harmonica can fill in on guitar and  keyboards if needed. Mr. Paul Simister, what can we say, not much, adds a  great set of lead vocals to the band and also his infectious smile and  gets himself into situations that leads to funny stories and  to the  band. Brad Stratychuk had been holding the band together with his rhythm  and timing on the drums. We can't ask for a more tasteful drummer for  volume and timing. The Cross Country Show Band appreciates the talent of  Brad. They say he's that good that they don't know he's on stage.  Adding more tasteful music is Ken Goodman with his smooth multi  instrument stylings on guitar, fiddle, & banjo.  Kevin Harcourt has a  great time being the MC and causing havoc to the fellow band members.  He also does lead vocals, playing rhythm on his 12 string guitar and  having a great time. All the Cross Country Show Band have the same  objective, to give the listening public controlled volume, clean show  and full value and quality every show.

The Wild Dog Waits- Saturday May 12th 7:30 pm


A  young teacher from “big city” Saskatchewan arrives in a town overgrown  by forest to be the principal of a school in a cage. Now a wild dog has  figured out how to get through the fence… what has she gotten herself  into?

One  versatile performer and three chalkboards tell a goofy and heartwarming  story about a 23-year old principal in Northern Saskatchewan.
