Shaw and Temple mix wit and musical chops for Cowichan boomers
Two old guys with a ton of good humour and two tons of old tunes.
Kenny Shaw and Brian Temple are all about entertaining the baby boomer generation and make no bones about it as they prepare for their new "comedy and harmony" '60s tribute extravaganza for Crofton.
Shaw is a three-time winner of the B.C. Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year and has performed internationally including three trips to Afghanistan to entertain the troops. Temple is an original member of the Hudson Brothers band and a studio musician.
"He teams up with Kenny in an unbeatable comedy music show that’s all about the time when Rrock and roll was fun," event promotional material reads. "You know you're going to have a blast with these two fun guys when the Twist contest breaks out , or they get you to try and remember the chorus in the songs you grew up with.
"Having the outrageous “class clown antics” of Kenny unexpectedly spun around by subtlety of Brian’s dry didn’t-see-that-coming humour, has brought a whole new dynamic to what they both enjoy performing: parodies, skits, and hits by the harmony duos of the fifties and sixties.
"Their musical tributes are not only gut achingly funny, but delivered with the kind of high-calibre musicality you’d expect from more serious concert musicians."
Tickets for the Feb. 2 Crofton Hotel show are available at the hotel. Showtime is 8:30 p.m. and the night includes trivia contests and prizes.
