with Grant Simpson
“Thank you for recommending Grant. He was a real hit! Many attendees spoke to him afterwards about how much they enjoyed his performance or to ask him about future gigs. He was so popular, he was given a standing ovation!! That hasn’t occurred in over 13 years.” – Kathy Deyman RWTA
Grant’s 45-minute one man show that includes as much vaudeville performing as he can squeeze into 45 minutes.
Grant performs a mix of vaudeville songs, comedy, ragtime piano, musical-saw playing, banjo strumming, mental telepathy and magic.
- Opening Vaudeville Number complete with imaginary cast and a huge imaginary troupe of the most beautiful dancers you could have ever imagined.
- Vaudeville Songs and Stories
- Tiny bits of historic wisdom thrown in from time to time. Just enough to keep us honest.
- Ragtime Songs
- Piano Rags
- Comic Songs
- Musical Saw
- Banjo Numbers
- Guitar and Ukulele Soos
- Mental Telepathy
The video below is Grant playing musical saw accompanied by Howard Swan, a 97 year old vaudevillian who performed in the Winnipeg Theatres of the 1930s & 40s. The performance was recorded at the Millennium Library’s presentation “Greasepaint on the Prairies” in Winnipeg. March 30, 2019
