What does a mid-level local talent musical group like Hearse do when presented with an opportunity to put on a show at the venerable Roxy Theatre? Why, they gather all their local friends (and foes!) and throw a Kitchen Party!

Inspired by the glitzy, and often bizarrely hilarious, 1970’s era variety show specials in the vein of Sonny and Cher and Donnie and Marie, local power couple McLaughlin and Walker have concocted a night of music, comedy, performance, and mayhem featuring a wide ranging roster of Victoria talent and trouble, and of course featuring some of their own greatest hits!

Joined by the Kitchen Party Orchestra (Deleina “Sweet Diesel” Mae on Bass, Joel “Flying Fingers” Fernandes on Guitars, and Gord “Good as Gold” Marshall on Drums,) Hearse invites a baker’s dozen of entertainers to join the party:

Gentleman Jim (Local Hero) warms up the show and our hearts with classic crooning! Wes Borg (“The War of 1812”, Delusional Productions) sings us into submission! Boss Saint B (Britt Small, Atomic Vaudeville) instructs on the value of hobbies! Drew Farrance (The Mash, Phillips Comedy Night) muses on proper social behaviour! Kathryn Popham (The Great Big Show, Delusional Productions) exposes the darkest parts of Hearse through puppetry! Carolyn Mark (The World Famous Hootenanny, Queen of Vancouver Island) chimes in on wine and love! Chelsea Lou (The Hate Locker Podcast, Thursday Night Comedy Pro-Am) lets us know it’s okay to laugh at ourselves! Dane Loucks (Teenage Violets) exposes his inner Elvis! Griffin Lea (Rocky Horror Picture Show, Hedwig and the Angry Inch) blows more than the doors off the theatre! Kathleen Miniely (Merridale Showdown: Slam Edition Winner, Banff & Victoria Spoken Word Fest alum) brings biology to the fore! Eddi Wilson (Animal Medicine, Eddi Licious) reminds us that things could be much worse! David P. Smith (Apeshit Army, Dad’s Juice) issues a musical challenge to the entire kitchen! Jimbo Insell (2017 Merridale Showdown Season Champion) brings out the inner and outer phantoms in us all!

Featuring special audio appearances of the actual DJs of KSQM Radio 91.5 FM from Sequim, Washington! This is by far the most outlandish event Hearse or its members have ever produced or participated in. Yes, more outlandish than Grayson’s Drink-o Bingo Night or J’s UNO Fest performances! Hyperbolically more outlandish than their J and Grayson Ruin Xmas!

It is with sincerely motivated self-interest that Hearse invites those from all walks of life to share in that most intimate space at the heart of the home, surrounded by friends, songs, and laughter, alcoholic beverages available at the Roxy Concession, fond memories of past visits, and vain assumptions of future success.

Hearse (Folk Cabaret Couple)

A hearse is the vehicle which conveys each of us to our final resting place. The word might evoke thoughts of cars and trucks driving us to our graves or the horse cart leading up to the pyre.
