VERONIC VOICES (DiCaire)

VERONIC VOICES (DiCaire)

 

Singer and imitator, Véronic DiCaire has a path punctuated with versatility and perseverance. Recognized to interpret with incredible accuracy the greatest voices of French, Québécois and American song, she rakes broad and impresses wherever she goes.

A Canadian born in Embrun , a small community in eastern Ontario, the singer-imitator has had a blistering career in recent years.

Passionate about singing since her youngest age, Véronic impresses the jury of the Ontario Pop contest when she was only 17 years old. She won 1st prize in the performer category. Then, she will touch the world of the musical one time with the role of Sandy in the Quebec adaptation of GREASE.

But it is under his own voice that Véronic DiCaire really made a name for himself in French Canada with a first folk-rock album released by Warner in 2002, which earned him two nominations at the ADISQ Gala and five Trille awards. Or at the Gala de la chanson and Franco-Ontarian music in 2003.

In March of the same year, she returned to the musical to perform Roxie Hart’s role in the French production of CHIGAGO – La Comédie Musicale, alongside comedian Anthony Kavanagh (in Montreal) and Stéphane Rousseau (in Paris). Success in Quebec first and then at the Casino de Paris in 2004. She had previously doubled the voice of Renée Zellweger for the French version of the film, which again demonstrates his talent and versatility as an artist.

Spring 2005-2006, she released a second album and followed the tours, galas, TV shows (a first as an animator), a TV series and a theater revue.

In 2007, she began to unveil her talents as an imitator, notably at Just for Laughs in Montreal and Le Grand Rire in Quebec City.

In 2008, Céline Dion and René Angélil entrusted him with the first part of Taking Chances at the Bell Center in Montreal. In one evening, his life had changed! With the triumph she won, she sold out everywhere in Quebec and carried her many voices to Europe. If the French first knew her as judge on the show X factor, they soon discovered the exceptional talent of this artist who can especially imitate Piaf to perfection. Her great European tour took her 12 times to the Olympia de Paris and all over France, Switzerland and Belgium from 2010 to 2012.

Between June 2013 and 2015, Veronic presented a brand new show – Voices – at the Jubilee Theater at Bally’s Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. She personified fifty of the greatest American and international voices. Her show – co-produced by Celine Dion – won Best Singer at the 2014 Best of Las Vegas Awards and she was selected Best Impersonator – successor to Danny Gans by the contest’s editorial team.

Between her stays in Las Vegas, Véronic also presented a brand new show – La Voix des Autres – touring French Canada. She is now preparing her second tour in Europe  … but before it will be Dance with the Stars, on TF1 !

THE OFFICIAL BLUES BROTHERS REVUE

THE OFFICIAL BLUES BROTHERS REVUE

There have been many imitators, but there is only duo in North America
hand-picked and sanctioned by Dan Ackroyd and Judith Belushi to don the official hat and sunglasses and walk in the legendary footsteps of Jake and Elwood Blues. Discovered in Las Vegas, performers Wayne Catania and Kieron Lafferty capture the infectious humor and unbridled spirit of the Blues Brothers like no one since John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd walked the stage. Backed by a powerhouse band, they’ll give you a show to remember packed with classic hits from the Blues Brothers catalog including Soul Man, Rubber Biscuit, Sweet Home Chicago, Flip Flop & Fly, and many more.  For a night of laughter, dancing, and foot-stompin’ fun, this is the show!

Blues Brothers Wayne Catania and Kieron Lafferty are the subjects of an A&E award winning docudrama/comedy “Lost in Las Vegas” about two performers impersonating two actors playing two fictitious brothers in a town where almost everything is a replica of something else. Produced by Paul Jay, the documentarian who created the multi-award winning expose of the World Wrestling Federation “Hitman Hart: Wrestling With Shadows”, this film explores pop culture and the underlying social issues of life in Las Vegas. It’s a fascinating back stage view of the entertainment world.

 

DR. DRAW

DR. DRAW

At age nine, Eugene Draw was a child prodigy violinist studying at the Royal Conservatory of Music. By age thirteen, the young virtuoso left the structures of formal study and began busking in Toronto. Encouraged by the growing acclamation and the utter joy of performance, Eugene developed the confidence to incorporate earlier dance training into his onstage violin performance, easily mixing classical movement with pop locking break-dancing. A performer was born: at once theatrical and authentic, musical and visionary.

Influenced by Chopin, Pink Floyd, Charles Minges, Peter Gabriel and David Bowie, Eugene’s renditions of classical masterpieces as well as his original compositions defy singular classification. Is it “Beethoven with Beats” as one critic described Draw’s music or are the sounds more at home in a downtown lounge with a dry martini in hand?

Over the last few years, Canada’s hottest violinist has been invited to perform for Toronto Tourism at events in the US, worked across the country at events for The Canadian Olympic Committee, opened for Bette Midler in San Francisco, Seal in Hong Kong, for the Prime Minister of Singapore and in such far off places such as Dubai, New York, Seoul and Kuala Lumpur. He has become one of the most in-demand festival and event performers in North America playing small country fairs to large international festivals.

Whether opening for A-list acts like Cyndi Lauper at an open air festival in the U.S., creating near chaos at the Toronto Beaches Jazz Festival or playing luxury brand events like Chloé and Dom Pérignon; Dr. Draw inspires kudos wherever he plays. Lately, his reputation is growing eastward. Performances have included playing in Singapore and a spate of Louis Vuitton events in Hong Kong, Malaysia, and South Korea. Performing in such frenetic locales energizes the 28-year-old performer all over again allowing him to “creatively interact with cultures all across the world.” The result is a constantly evolving musical style that brings together the seemingly disparate elements of classical violin, jazz-rock fusion, folk and pop into a riveting masala that feeds the soul and invigorates audiences.
