      Simply being able to see the performers! I have all 3 of their CDs, but listening to just the audio isn't the same as getting to actually see them perform. I hope they do this again in the future, and I hope the clipping and mic'ing problems are better next time -- the clipping wasn't bad and was tolerable; sadly the vocals were often slightly overpowered by the volume of the instruments, but again it wasn't horrible and was quite tolerable. Personally, I would have liked to have heard more "new" material, but being a musician myself, I understand that you need to do what the paying customers want, and most of those submitting requests wanted to hear their favorites tunes from the various recorded CDs. All in all, the show was fantastic, and I feel like I have a new, personal connection to the group now.

      What was your favorite part of the performance? Getting to hear the new tune! When will it be on a CD?

      The WSA is my favourite Band! They are all outstanding musicians and I learn something every time I see them perform. Stacey's vocals are like no other! Her voice is a Canadian treasure for sure! The band is so well rounded at every position, from Chappy's incredible Guitar work, to Ed's smooth and tasteful Pedal Steel, the Fiddle work of Shane and Dan, the solid Bass of Matthew and the foundation drum work of Jimmy! It is hard to find such an amazing collection of musicians in one band! Waterloo, Ontario and Canada can be very proud of these Western Swing ambassadors! Keep up the excellent work folks, and the online event was a great experience! It was super to be able to text requests and see the comments from many people across the country! Looking forward to the next event! Sincerely Malcolm Quick!

THE WESTERN SWING AUTHORITY

The Western Swing Authority is Shane Guse (fiddle, vocals), Stacey Lee Guse (vocals), Ed “Pee Wee Charles” Ringwald (steel guitar), Dan Howlett (fiddle, vocals), Paul “Chappy” Chapman (guitar and vocals), Matthew Lima (stand up bass) and Jimmy Boudreau (drums).

This stellar cast of musical peers and friends not only share a common love of Western Swing music, but together create a sound that fuses the old with the new, paying homage to the roots of traditional music in their own “new classic” original songs.

The “WSA” is a favourite with music lovers of all genres and ages. Their live shows are upbeat and fun, and the musicianship top-level.

Though individual members’ touring and recording credits are impressive, including names like Gordon Lightfoot and Dean Brody, it is the sum of the parts that is garnering attention and recognition worldwide.

“Love the WSA. Great accomplished players who play Western Swing like it should be played!” - Ray Benson/Asleep at the Wheel

“The Western Swing Authority is taking our music into the new millennium. With exceptional musicianship and knock your socks off vocals, they’re everything a swing band should be!” - Carolyn Martin/Western Swing Hall of Fame inductee

“As Merle Haggard brought the music of Bob Wills and Western Swing to a new generation of listeners, The Western Swing Authority is paying it forward not only by recording and performing these classics, but also writing new material proudly carrying on the style of traditional Western Swing music.” - Scott Wikle – My Kind of Country

“It’s impossible to listen to this record and not feel happy afterwards.” -Country Perspective

“A retro treat” - New Canadian Music

“Lush and fabulous. ” - Robert Oermann, Music Row Magazine

“Perhaps the finest album I have heard for some time” - Russell Hill Maverick Magazine
