Audiences will be whisked from one city site to another to witness the whimsical tale amongst unsuspecting local residents.

Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers, the Eagles and Aerosmith of Newfoundland, comprised of Front man Buddy Wasisname – capable of playing air harmonica and vocalizing at the same time, Other Feller Wayne Chaulk, the venerable song writer responsible for “Saltwater Joys” and Other Feller  Ray Johnson,  the  bastion  of traditional Newfoundland music for 50 years, backed up by the wizard of Bass guitar – Byron Pardy, are in their 34th year, making music and creating fun, making people laugh until they hurt and cry with emotion on a roller coaster ride which is called “a concert”. There are few acts to ever have succeeded in the way they have, making and growing an audience continually since they began in 1983. Theirs is an entirely original presentation,  sponsored  by…themselves.  No government subsidies here. Rock on.
