Bob Wegner
Bob Wegner
Bob Wegner has over a decade of experience in the studio and on stage. In 2006 he was selected by Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor to play guitar in the Toronto production of the We Will Rock You musical, ultimately leading to about 1,200 performances in various incarnations of the show around the world. After several tours with Classic Albums Live, he contributed to a project called Fabletongue, many of whose tracks were in collaboration with Grammy-winning producer David Bottrill. In 2015 he began performing solo acoustic guitar shows on cruise ships, playing anything from Indian classical music to flamenco to Bach to complete classic rock albums. Bob's one man show is a fun evening of great music and (often silly and embarrassing) storytelling. His debut album "Changing Of The Guard" is set for a 2017 release.
Taylor Abrahamse
Taylor Abrahamse
It wasn’t until he was four that Taylor talked – but almost immediately, he was humming music & impersonating Elvis. Now 25, Taylor is a professional voice actor, musician, and co-founder/operator of the professional recording studio ‘Silverthorn Studios’. Once a finalist on Canadian Idol, Taylor has performed across Ontario & writes, produces and performs songs that garner millions of views for Youtube’s ‘Super Planet Dolan’. Taylor also wrote the music & lyrics for ‘The Beaver Den: A New Canadian Musical’, has written for CBC, and hit artists including Danny Fernandes & Peter Driemanis (of July Talk), along with writing the official theme song for two upcoming animated series, as well as Disney XD’s ‘Fangbone!’

A section contributor to the Amazon #1 best-selling book ‘The Song Creation Formula’, Taylor has co-lead the acclaimed ‘Song Creation Workshop’ with Signe Miranda, and is half the duo Taylor & Bryn.

In recent years, Taylor has also become an in-demand voice actor. He can be heard as a leading role in many series including ‘Fangbone!’ (Disney XD), Yuki in ‘Beyblade: Metal Fury’ (Cartoon Network), Jonas on ‘Bob The Slob!’ (Teletoon), Luis on the multi-Emmy nominated ‘The Future Is Wild’ (Teletoon/Discovery Kids), as well as supporting roles in series such as ‘George Of The Jungle’ (Nickelodeon), ‘Beyraiderz’ (Cartoon Network), ‘Looped!’ (DHX), ‘The 3 Amigonauts’ (YTV), and more. For the popular live action sitcom ‘The Stanley Dynamic’ (YTV), Taylor plays the lead character of Luke Stanley, who, is a normal teenager, except for the fact that he’s a cartoon. In order to seamlessly have the cartoon of Luke interacting with live action characters & environments, Taylor goes through the same rehearsal & filming process as all the other cast members.

Taylor also has many on-screen commercial & film credits from his childhood/teenage years, including playing Jimmy Osmond in the ABC biopic ‘Inside The Osmonds’, & Eliott in PAX TV’s ‘Doc’ starring Billy Ray Cyrus, a series for which Taylor was nominated for a Young Actor’s Award for ‘Best Performance In A Supporting Role’. Taylor also played ‘Cinco’, in the Ross Petty musical pantomime ‘Snow White & The Group Of Seven’ along with rock royalty such as Alan Frew of Glass Tiger, and can even be heard in a small vocal cameo in the underground movie classic ‘Hedwig & The Angry Inch’ (Newline Cinema).

Taylor has created numerous charitable initiatives, including the monthly music comedy variety show ‘Hey Lets Make Music!’, and ‘The Captains Of C.O.D.E’, a leadership program for youth grades 2-6. He is a graduate of, and has served as production supervisor, coach & assistant for various programs created by Landmark Worldwide, a highly regarded personal & professional training & development organization.

Taylor also provides coaching for voice acting, singing, guitar & songwriting out of his professional Toronto recording studio/Airbnb.
