Vaudeville's half-century of popularity may have passed, but don't tell that to Al Simmons. He has delighted audiences with his gadget-filled musical-comedy style for over three decades, inspired by the work of Spike Jones and Danny Kaye. Simmons is the 1995 Juno Award-winner for "Best Children's Album," and his illustrated children's book "Counting Feathers" was short-listed for McNally-Robinson's "Book of the Year" in 1997. He has produced thee audio CDs, all of which were Parent's Choice honorees and Juno Award nominated. Simmons is proud to have a hot dog named after him in his hometown of Anola, Manitoba.
