EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT!
We are thrilled to announce the judges and host for your 5th annual Toronto Air Guitar Championships. We have three new Judges and two returning veterans to the panel!
Our first newbie is none other than Jamie Gutfreund – the Co-Host for CP24 BREAKFAST WEEKEND and News Anchor/Reporter/Weather Specialist throughout the week on CP24. Jamie is also a ‘real’ guitarist and has been a long-time supporter of numerous charitable events and causes. We are thrilled to finally get him to judge the ‘fake’ guitar.
Marilla Wex is a comedian currently starring as the Foreign Correspondent in “The Beaverton” on Comedy. Her superpower is her British accent which enables her both to complain effectively in restaurants and say terrible swears while still being considered charming. It is impossible to overestimate her excitement at being asked to judge the Toronto Regional Air Guitar Competition Event.
Our last newbie is Reece Lubbock from Collective Arts Brewery. He holds a special place in our hearts and bellies as the purveyor of all beers amazing or all amazing beers, depending on how you state the obvious. Here’s what his good friend and work colleague Graeme Steele had to say about him: “Reece works in Toronto for the most Rock n’ Roll brewery out there, Collective Arts Brewing. He brings with him a love of tunes, surfing, and beer. To quote the man himself ‘to err is human, to air guitar is divine’
To round out our judging panel – Returning for another occasion on the Jury is the queen of Living Life to the fullest – Tanya Casole-Gouveia from Art Battle Toronto. Tanya has experience with Air Guitar, having judged the 2017 National Championships. She knows self expression on a competitive level. A dancer, emcee and social butterfly, she has an eye for what’s what. She truly believes the genius is in the details. We are proud to welcome back Tanya to the mayhem and mimicry that is Air Guitar.
Then we have the 4 year veteran judge Brandy Dawley who is back again in some other super amazing version of her costumed, made up, magical person. If anyone ‘knows’ air guitar at this point in the game… it is Brandy. She also makes really cool bath products!
Also back for more stage time and keeping us ‘on’ time is Nyree MacPherson, our two-time Air Guitar Host and producer of some of the finest Burlesque productions in the city of Toronto.
We can’t wait to welcome the performers to the Rivoli Stage on June 23rd for our 5th Air Guitar Toronto Championships!
