DOUG BALFOUR AND SUZI WESSON: AGEING GRACELESSLY - LIVE AT THE FLYING BEAVER PUBARET!
FRIDAY, APRIL 11, 9pm
SECOND SHOW ADDED AT 7pm!
DOUG BALFOUR AND SUZI WESSON - AGEING GRACELESSLY

After nearly thirty years apart  on the eve of his 60th birthday  Doug Balfour and Suzi Wesson are performing together again!  There will be moving melodies, comedic compositions and original opuses.   There may also be a La-Z-Boy chair for Doug, if he needs it.  We're just not sure.  

Suzi and Doug first performed together at Curtains Up, where they discovered they had sympathetic musical tastes.  Hitting spots like the Groaning Board, Fitzgerald's, and the CafĂ© on the Park, they performed jazz, blues, rock 'n roll, music theatre and whatever eclectic tunes took their fancy.  Although life and work eventually took them in different directions, they found opportunities to work together, including an evening of original pieces, Together Again for the First Time, as part of the Harbourfront Swing Shift Cabaret series.

Subsequently, Doug has played, conducted and arranged just about every style of music going.  An accomplished classical pianist, composer and accompanist, he has also music directed shows across Canada  including Forever Plaid  and Ain't Misbehavin'.   He's played everything from big shows  Wicked, Phantom of the Opera, Ragtime and Sunset Boulevard  to big bands  as a member of the Jessie Award winning big band for Forever Swing  to Dixieland.   He's also a mean rock 'n roll player, having toured for a number of years with The Fridgidaires, a five-piece 50's and 60's band.  If we're lucky tonight, we may get him to kick over his piano stool.  Then, of course, we'll have to help him lift it up again.

Suzi (who is much, much younger) will prop up Doug as best she can.  An actor/singer, Suzi toured extensively with Les MisĂ©rables, joining the original Toronto run in progress, and going as far afield as Honolulu and Anchorage.  Other favourite productions include Oliver!, The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-moon Marigolds and The House of Martin Guerre, where she shared the stage with her then-unborn youngest son.  A songwriter herself, Suzi composed and music directed The 401 Show for the Upper Canada Playhouse in Morrisburg.  She currently keeps her hand in by writing music for a much younger audience, as an Orff Instructor at the Toronto District School Board, where she teaches and leads music workshops.  Her hobbies include picking up after teenagers, running away from home on Monday nights, and lifting up old guys' piano stools.

Doug and Suzi are looking forward to entertaining you.
