Master of satire at Wave

Todd Butler and his band will play Oct. 12 at the Waverley Hotel.

On tour with his trio, Canada’s Master of Satire puts his musical prowess forward, showing audiences another side of his award-winning talents.

Todd Butler and his band will play Oct. 12 at the Waverley Hotel.

Todd and his band go from slow, smoky blues to breakneck bluegrass with such ease the audience is left in a state of excited suspension wondering where the next turn will take them!

Todd is a veteran contributor to CBC Radio and Television.

With over 20 years of live performance experience as both a musician/vocalist and a comedian, Todd’s skills are finely tuned to an exquisite point and he swings easily from lambasting politicians in hilarious political parodies to interpreting the latest news story with a twist.

Then, Todd the storyteller takes over, enrapturing the audience with poignant tales of love, friendship, what it means to belong, to be an outsider, to be searching for something real in these crazy, virtual times.

There’s a $7 cover charge at the door, which opens next Friday at  9 p.m.
