Last night most of us, in town for the folk Festival meetings went over to the Virtigo Theatre, situated in an ironically appropriate location, at the foot of the Calgary Tower, to see Buzz Job, billed as the true story of Cal Cavendish.
This calaboration between David van Belle and Kris Demeanor brings us Cal Cavindish's last gig and walks us through Cal's life and what for him was the last straw and the event/adventure that changed everything.
Kris Demeanor and his Crack band give us a great story and some really good music, some of Cals, some written by Chris Demeanor. It is a sad and funny story. I am not sure when I have laughed so much.
As an added treat, Cal was there last night and after the play was invited up to play a few songs and to meet the audience.
The play has a short run so, if you happen to be in Calgary. Get a ticket pronto.
You won't regret it.
