Established in 1982, we’ve been entertaining roaring crowds ever since. It used to be that logging shows were limited to the confines of small logging communities, where men would compete after the work was done to see who was the fastest sawer, quickest climber, and most steady on the logs. The lumberjacks showed off their skills, knowing that the best logger could earn more money when work started again. Today, the dangers of the industry are still very real and…

I learned how to play rhythm guitar at the young age of 11 and had already been playing piano years before that. I so loved music! I sang all the time and announced to my neighbours I was going to be a star one day. Well,…
