Singer/songwriter

JUNO Award-winner Al Simmons leads action-packed sing-a-longs and pits his bizarre, homemade instruments against the string, woodwind, brass, and percussion sections of the WSO. He manages to coax music out of tin cans, soda straws, garden hoses, turkey basters and doorstoppers. In the slapstick process, Al shows the science behind the music by comparing his crude instruments to their more expensive counterparts.

“For those in search of the truly zany, the undisputed king is Al Simmons.”
– Maclean’s Magazine

“Riotously funny! Simmons‚ props and costumes are wildly inventive in concept and ingenious in execution”
– Winnipeg Free Press
