Bohemian Misfits

To whom it may concern, I hope this letter finds you in excellent spirits. My name is Marcel Dou Roig, and I would like to introduce you to the Bohemian Misfits Productions. As a director I am a passionate Performer with a reputation for delivering captivating and mesmerizing shows. I am writing to express my interest in contributing to the Fisher Peak Performing Artist roster and to present my performance of Ed the Elephant for your consideration. With more than 25 years of experience within the arts, I have honed my craft to offer a show that is both unique and engaging, designed to leave audiences spellbound and craving for more. Here’s a glimpse of what the show entails: Our show includes ten performers showcasing a 16 foot tall Elephant puppet, powered by humans. The performance takes place in the streets, it is reminiscent of the 1923 circus as they enter town. This is a very interactive performance between actors, puppets and the audience. Our little circus moves audiences in streets, squares or parks, regardless there age. Children and adults enjoy the up close and personal interaction with Ed the elephant and all the circus performers. As in the 1900’s our show attracts and captivates audiences through the streets. Our show is a high energy, moving parade that travels from point A to point B spreading happiness and amusement. I am confident that our performance would be a perfect fit for Fisher Peak Performing Artists audience. With a track record of leaving crowds in awe, I believe I can contribute to the Fisher Peak Performing Artist success by providing topnotch entertainment that attendees will remember for years to come. Thank you for taking the time to consider my proposal. Sincerely, Marcel Dou Roig  

Tick Magnets/Two Ticks

Tick Magnets is a group of enthusiastic musicians who play an eclectic mix of folk/country/bluegrass/gospel/old time music for audiences young and old, living and dead.  The group – composed of Rollie Cummins (vocals, guitar, autoharp) of Wycliffe and Steve Knowles  (vocals, guitar, banjo) from Cranbrook – originally came together as a quartet, out of a love for acoustic jamming and vocal harmony.  Recently, the group is down to Rollie and Steve, who perform as Two Ticks, but they often welcome a bass player to join them so they can once again offer the full Tick Magnets majesty.   In the face of the trials and tribulations that come with the pursuit of the perfect chord, the group takes heart from its motto:  “Ticks Dig Us.”

Brother Ray Lemelin

Born and Raised in the Eastern townships of Quebec, Ray was raised in a family where musicians were common on both sides of the family. Playing music was a natural move for Ray as he himself affirmed as a child (Jigging for change at gatherings) and in blues Rock local bands at house parties or wherever else he was allowed to perform as a teenager and young adult.

In Calgary, after attending a Willie Dixon concert, he proceeded to get a hair cut, buy a suit, a Stratocaster and tube amp. Everything changed and he started searching and listening to anything Blues in all styles but always digging the Roots. Once the King Eddy opened, he spent every opportunity there to listen and learn at the feet of masters. Being at the king Eddy all the time led to an opportunity as one week a friend had a P.A. at the club but could not do the sound gig for the artist, Clarence Gatemouth Brown. Ray jumped at the opportunity and in turn was asked to do the two-week gig along with the rest of the Western Canadian gigs. That started a friendship with Gate and a few other gigs as Ray took care of the stage and sound along with being Gate’s valet. During this time Ray led or was part of the blood of the Alberta blues scene, playing with Jimmy Payne, Tim Williams, Ron Casat, Amos Garrett, Rusty Reed, Back-alley John, Johnny V, harp Dog Brown, all the while leading his own groups in between jobs backing other on the Blues scene.

As time went on Ray would keep getting calls to put together a tight band to back up touring blues artists in his part of the world. Subsequently he has had the opportunity to back up or work with and share the stage with many artists such as: Wes Mackay, Lowell Fulson, Fenton Robinson, Jimmy Payne, Pinetop Perkins, Billy Branch, sugar Blue, Sherman Robertson, Johnny Copeland, Sonny Rhodes, mark Hummel, Johnny Nitro, Carl Weathersby, Michael Coleman, James Coffon, Lurrie Bell, Country Pete, Alabama Mike Big Dave Mclean, and Brent Parkin.

Ray released his next album, Dark/Out of Phase. This album is all acoustic and features Tim Williams throughout the Album. He is also busy leading a full time band the “Matinee Kings”, along with teaching and mentoring which is very important as this is how the craft is learned and passing it on is an easy thing to do as all his idols and mentors were very generous.
