State of Comedy

Comedy has been an important aspect to Sal Demilio’s life since grade school. Growing up in an Italian household and having lived in Italy, Switzerland, New York City and finally, the Detroit metro area, he has woven his Italian heritage into his comedy routine.

Having been a fan of comedy all his life, Sal took a class at Mark Ridley’s Comedy Castle, and got hooked on the laughter and applause after putting on a show for his graduation assignment. From there he went on to area bars, coffee houses and restaurants to hone his skills. Since he started doing open mics 14 years ago, Sal is a national headliner, performing at comedy clubs throughout the United States, and has also performed at all the comedy clubs in the Detroit metro area. His professional inspirations have been Rodney Dangerfield, Richard Pryor and Jerry Seinfeld.

After attending Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti, MI, Sal finally graduated after 12 years. It took that long, as he took time off to spend at various clubs perfecting his act. His observational style and family-oriented materials appeal to all ages and all walks of life. Since Sal touches on a variety of topics, everyone in the audience can relate to at least one of them. Much of his humor focuses on growing up in an Italian household, where no one spoke English, and on his extensive sports background. Other topics he includes in his routine hit on college days, current events and topical humor, the movies, and dieting and exercising. Sal is very likeable and has a knack of building great recognition with all types of audiences.

Sal has opened acts for Lewis Black; Pablo Francisco; Dave Coulier; Dave Attel & Nick DiPaolo

Steve Caminiti has appeared with Jay Leno, Tim Allen, Robin Williams, Wynona Judd, The Commodores, Hootie and the Blowfish, and Ray Charles. Steve’s big smile and friendly style ensure a great night of entertainment. Proudly Italian, he gives his unique viewpoint on everything from family life to the awkward relationship between men and women.

He was voted the Funniest Man in Cincinnati by his peers, Funniest Person in Ohio by Showtime, and picked as Best Comedian by Cincinnati Magazine and City Beat. Steve is a regular on the nationally syndicated “Bob & Tom” radio show, and was also featured in Rolling Stones Comedy Issue.

Four men. Four microphones. No instruments.

This is the formula for Canada’s celebrated vocal band, Cadence.

The stage lights fall, the crowd goes quiet, and four harmonious voices rise and fill the air. The melodies unfurl into something both familiar and fresh. What comes next may be a classic song by Joni Mitchell or Louis Prima. It may be an old bebop standard or cheeky arrangement of a 1980’s hit. But these are arrangements like you’ve never heard them before – containing all the richness of a full band, but performed using just four voices.

This is Cadence, Canada’s premiere vocal group. Based in Toronto, this a cappella ensemble has been wowing audiences across the country and around the world for nearly 20 years. Whether performing at sold-out jazz clubs and concert halls, at music festivals, for educational outreach, or for corporate functions, the members of Cadence bring an infectious energy and uncanny verve to every song they sing.

The group’s four critically acclaimed studio albums, Cool Yule (2011), Speak Easy (2010), Twenty for One (2005), and Frost Free (2000) have won or been nominated for numerous awards, including three nods from the JUNO Awards and 10 from CARA, the Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards.

Cadence’s live shows are always a it. They feature a hypnotic blend of complex harmonies, intricate arrangements, vocal dexterity, and just plain fun. On-stage antics and audience participation are par for the course at any Cadence show, but so too is a mesmerizing display of musical genius. What these boys can do with their voices needs to be heard to be believed.

The band is made up of David Lane (baritone and base), Ross Lynde (tenor), Lucas Marchand (tenor, and Kurt Sampson (base and vocal percussion). They each bring many years of training and performance experience to create a rich musical event appropriate for all ages.

Meet the Guys!

Hailing from Red Deer, Alberta, David Lane’s musical life began with piano lessons from his mother and being part of an elementary school choir. Once in middle school, he took a hiatus from piano and voice to explore saxophone and drums, which oddly led to him joining the high school choirs. After high school, David left Western Canada to attend the School for Music Vocations in Iowa. It was here that he developed a love for jazz piano and voice and ensemble vocal jazz singing. David went on to complete a Bachelor of Music (First Class Honours) in Jazz performance at St. Francis Xavier University, majoring in voice. He also sang and played shows in a variety of student-led projects, ranging from beat boxing (a natural merging of his love of voice and percussion) in a hip-hop group, to playing keys and singing in a Funk band. He went on to obtain a Bachelor of Music Education from Memorial University in Newfoundland, and has now settled as a performer and teacher in the Greater Toronto Area.

 

Ross Lynde has been performing since he was a teenager. His training began in high school where he played first trumpet and went on to place within the ‘top 5’ in the Canadian National Stage Band Competition. Self-taught on piano, guitar, bass guitar and drums, Ross became involved in many groups, productions, rock bands and recording projects. Despite constant activity in the Toronto music scene, Ross desired a deeper musical experience and enrolled in York University’s music program where he studied piano, vocal improvisation, and world music with Casey Sokol, as well as south Indian drumming with mrdangam virtuoso Trichy Sankaran. He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in performance in 1998 with the intention of pursuing his education degree, but instead he became the second tenor in the newly formed Cadence and is now fulfilling his dream by performing for audiences young and old worldwide. Performer, arranger, composer, producer, and teacher, Ross continues to play rock’n’roll guitar and piano while taking on small recording projects and teaching in his home studio.

 

Originally from Victoria, Lucas Marchand has been singing on the stage since he was three years old. In high school, Lucas played keyboards and sang with the Vic High R&B Band where he had the opportunity to perform with Martha Reeves. He went on to study voice at the University of Victoria earning a BMus with distinction. During this time he sang with the UVic Chamber singers, touring and performing across four continents. In 2005 Lucas moved to Toronto where he won a spot singing tenor with the Nathaniel Dett Chorale and performed with them for six seasons. During his tenure, The Chorale had the distinction of being chosen to represent Canada by performing at Barack Obama’s inauguration in Washington DC. Having settled in Toronto, Lucas began building his own private voice teaching practice and frequently traveled to Los Angeles to study vocal pedagogy with renowned instructor Seth Riggs (Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Luther Vandross etc.). Lucas completed a Master’s degree in music education at the University of Toronto in 2011 before joining Cadence in January 2012.

 

Originally from Charlottetown, PEI, Kurt Sampson began his musical endeavors at the age of 11 with the trombone, guitar, and singing, and eventually moved on to the bass, drums, and piano. At 17, he moved to Montreal to study jazz music at McGill University where he earned both his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in jazz trombone performance. He also taught at McGill, directing one of the university’s widely acclaimed jazz orchestras, and University of Toronto, conducting the Hart House vocal jazz ensemble Onoscatopoeia. Kurt has gained experience in many musical disciplines while performing across North America, Europe, Asia and the Caribbean. He has performed in several million-dollar award winning production shows such as “C’est Formidable” and “Point & Click”. He has worked for Carnival Cruise Lines, the Ceremonial Guard Band in Ottawa, and has taken part in numerous festivals, workshops and camps throughout Canada. In addition to performing with Cadence, Kurt continues teaching private lessons, doing voice work for TV and film, arranging and composing music, contributing to Canada’s jazz scene, and supporting all facets of music.
