Victor was born in Plattsburgh New York and since has traveled much of the world producing outdoor television. Music has been a staple in Victor’s life for the past 20 years and recently he has experienced an overflow of original writing “I have a bad habit of putting my foot in my mouth. Music is an opportunity for me to collect my thoughts, put them down on paper, and then deliver them. Without music I think I would be in trouble a lot more frequently.” Playing in and around the Quinte area, Victor has been able to fulfill his passion for performing in his very occasional free time. He now lives in Quinte west with his wife Jodi.

“[Pat Maloney’s] music is soulful, honest, hilarious and smart” – Fingers on Blast, 2015
Pat Maloney went out on a limb. He put in his notice, hopped in the car and did it.
Root Rot and Repotting, two full-length recordings, and a two-part series, describe a transition from village to town to city. From school and working world to creative freedom. Both records are sold out of the first run, planted with care all over Canada and The United Kingdom.
Followers know to love Pat’s handcrafted stop-motion animated music videos. Whether he uses chalk, or felt, or a house-plant leaf, the videos are entertaining examples of some very quirky, DIY film-making.
RIGHTHERE is Pat’s first fully acoustic, live-in-studio album. Set for release in June 2016, digitally on the Be One Music label. The record is an honest representation of his live show, featuring songs about touring in England’s rugged midlands, his travels across Canada and his life in Toronto.
Pat Maloney is the 2015 winner of The Canadian Organization of Campus Activities’ (COCA) “Singer-Songwriter of the Year”.Visit Artist Website

imagery with dark humour and biting social commentary. In September 2017, Jack Pine

The Laramie Project
PRESENTED BY THE VILLAGE THEATRE
Join us for a riviting night at the theatre. Options available for show only, dinner and a lunch matinee. Click the link below to review show times and ticket prices.
In October 1998, a twenty-one-year-old student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, severly beaten, and left tied to a fence in the middle of the prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming. His bloody, burised, and battered body was not discovered until the next day, and he died several days later in an area hospital. His name was Matthew Sheppard, and he was the victim of this assault because he was gay. Moises Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theatre Project made six trips to Laramie over the course of a year and a half, in the aftermath of the beating and during the trial of the two young men accused of killing Sheppard. They conducted more than 200 interviews with the people of the town. Some people interviewed were directly connected to the case, while others were citizens of Laramie, and the bredth of the reactions to the crime is fascinating. Kaufman and Tectonic Theater members have constucted a deeply moving theatrical experience from these interviews and their own experiences in Laramie. The Laramie Project is a breathtaking collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.
