Endearing, Topical, and very funny.  That is Kenny Shaw in a nutshell!  We first hired Kenny to MC Countryfest in Dauphin over two decades ago and he has worked the crowds every year since then.  He ranges from the cool to the manic in a twinkling of an eye (usually his) and always with a warm chuckle.

 

Kenny is the consummate professional; always on time and on cue.  Ours is a big four day festival and Kenny is out there every day, all day, and he introduces artists, contest winners, talks up sponsors,  shoots their t-shirts into the crowd with his homemade air bazooka, plays guitar and sings goofy songs,  and keeps up a steady patter, poking fun at politicians, music history, pop icons,  all while imitating a wide range of celebs and doing the weather report.  Oh, and I should mention he also does his own kids show on Saturday morning.

 

As you can imagine, we have formed a very warm relationship with Kenny over the years and we count on him to be an on stage link to the crowd,  and the patrons expect him back every year.

 

I highly recommend you make Kenny part of your event!

 

Your truly,

 

Eric Irwin

“What a performance! I had seen you before in a large venue but you really blew the roof off at Boundary Ranch in a more intimate setting, which amply demonstrated your versatility.I can’t think of the last time I heard so many laughs from an audience. In fact, after an hour you just wore us out! And who can ever forget Waylon and Willie. Thankfully you went to Marty Robbins and showed us what a great singing voice you have.I can attest to the fact that all the delegates had stiff “laugh muscles” the next day and many were still chuckling about your routine.I would like to extend sincere thanks on behalf of the Journey 2002 Organizing Committee for joining us – your act truly was and “Incredible Journey”.

"On behalf of the Campbell River Shrine Club, I would like to thank you and the entertainers for the excellent Kid's Variety Show in Campbell River on May 18th. I talked to many people of all ages after the show and they had nothing but good things to say about the performance of all three entertainers. Kenny Shaw had the kids involved right from the start. Michael Harrison was incredibly entertaining with his ventriloquism and involving the audience, both on stage and in the audience. Shawn Watson and his beautiful assistant kept the audience on the edges of their seats with his magic and illusionism. Each of them involved the children around the front of the stage to the entertainment of everybody."
Gordon Clarke, Campbell River Shrine Club

Bunnie Flynn, Interior Lumber Manufactures Assoc.
