How do you define good showmanship? Does it require an over the top costume? What about nerves? Do you find yourself nervous before going on stage? Not sure how to put on a “show”? Or even what kind of “show”? We discuss all this with Mike who’s back from touring and student extraordinaire Trevor Bernard Sinnott.
Do you read musical notation? I never really became good at it mostly because I’ve never really had the opportunity to sharpen my skills. But I guess if I want to get real serious about playing, it might benefit me more than I think. Hear what Andre and Trevor have to say about the whole thing.

Do you hate on certain kinds of music? Admit it, we’ve all done it one way ore another. I personally learned to let go of this habit not too long ago and decided to quit bashing music I don’t necessarily like. Tune in and see what the boys think.
This episode features Andre and myself. Filling in again for a busy Mike is Cap U Jazz Program student Trevor Bernard.
This week, it’s all about CRITICISM.
Capilano University Jazz Program graduate Trevor Bernard sits in for Mike who is out on tour. Hope you enjoy!
Here’s part 2 of our interview with Joseph Peloquin – Hopfner from Manitoba. We dig into how they started and as young, eager musicians. He defines what he thought was “perfection” in his music and how now he may see it it a bit differently. Make sure to check out all the links from all the groups he’s been involved with. Yup, he knows his shit, alright.
We also got a double serving of Don’t Be That Guy to make up for last week.
It’s our first episode with an official guest. It’s a 2-part series featuring Joseph Peloquin-Hopfner from Manitoba and we talk about everything from playing metal in the middle-of-nowhere, Canada to working with artists to help promote up and coming bands. All here.
