I have known Darren and his family for years.
Very early on in my career the Walter's Family invited me to be a part of their annual Christmas show at the Brantford Sanderson Centre. It shows you how long ago we met, I've hit the Sanderson Centre stage probably two dozen times or more times since that first performance.
I've also bumped into Darren's brother, Bradley Walters several times in random places around the world. Most recently in San Juan we walked right past each other the day before boarding the Celebrity Summit.
There are a lot areas our lives overlap. My life however is completely vapid of any music talent whatsoever.
The Walters Family are essentially unicorns. There is something incredible about each of them. Together they pool their magical powers together and bundle it all into a picture-perfect farm in Bright, Ontario called the Walters Family Theatre.

What a dream. I can't imagine how much grass has to be cut and snow plowed but the idea of making your own coffee and performing in the same place feels like winning the lottery. A lottery that requires several people's full-time efforts. Did I mention it's a dinner theatre that they've been selling out for over 20 summer seasons?
See what I mean, unicorns.
