It was great to see people
brave the cold weather in Beaverton to come up to the see the show!
Although the crowd was small, the support was big! It was great to see
people in the audience out to enjoy our performance and raise some
desperately needed funds for Acacia House.
A few of us from "The Wiz" were battling various forms of viruses and
colds, but that wasn't going to stop us for putting on the best show we
For one night only, I will be making the trek north to
Beaverton to take part in a special holiday show to raise money for
Acacia House in Kenya. The show, entitled "HOLIDAY EXPRESS" will
feature a number of the actors from "The Wiz" and will take the audience
on a trip as we explore how Christmas is celebrated around the world!
The show will be held at the Beaverton Town Hall and it starts at 7:30
It's sure to be a fun show - and certainly a great cause. 'Tis the
season to give back to other and celebrate with those you love.
It's too bad that this is only a one-night event - but every bit helps
when you're raising money.
Hope to see you out!

"The Wiz" in "THE WIZ"
There are few words to say
about such a giving cast and an amazing show. I was so honoured to be a
part of it and be given the opportunity to work with some truly
wonderful people. I am very happy that we were able to raise some much
needed funds for KW Cares. Your generousity towards the cause and
interest in my performance really made it a joy to get up on stage and
really let loose with my character!
It was a good workout indeed - but I loved every minute of it! There are
some truly talented people who are associated with T3 Productions and I
hope that I am able to work with them again.
Thank you again to everyone who came out to see the show! I look forward
to the next one!
Hey all! This will mark the 2nd show I have done with T3
Productions and KW Cares. This time, we are doing the classic 70's
musical "THE WIZ". I am playing the great, omnipetent, mighty Wizard of
Oz! It's a fun role indeed and one which I enjoy! The cast is really
great and many of them were also in "TO
Life" back in the spring.
It is playing at the Papermill Theatre at Todmorden Mills.
Tickets are $25.00. and seating is limited. For more information on the
show, please call: 416-997-4224 or check out: www.myspace.com/t3_productions. Please check

the National Anthem for the Toronto Raptors
Talk about a great match! Our
hometown boys did us proud at the ACC against Miami! IT was a great
It was really nice to see all the CF personnel out to enjoy the game
with their families. A special thanks to those kind members of our
community who donated tickets so that our people could see that game -
your generousity is greatly appreciated.
It was a new experience to stand on the floor of the ACC - without ice
beneath my feet! It's quite a different sensation - but one that I
could easily get used to.
My thanks to everyone in the Toronto Raptors Basketball Club and Maple
Leaf Sports & Entertainment Ltd for another great CF Appreciation
It looks like this may be my last CF Appreciation event of
2008. What a great way to go out with my debut appearance for the

the National Anthem for the Toronto Maple Leafs
Wow! What a great game! Both
the Leafs and the Habs fought hard all night! It was great to see the
Leafs take the win! What a match!
The inductees from the Hall of Fame were in great form and it was
fantastic to chat with some of hokcey's legends!
On a sombre note, it was a very humbling experience to share the ice
with some true heroes - our veterans. Singing the anthem tonight was an
amazing experience once again as a part of the Remembrance Day service.
My thanks to everyone in the HMCS York colour guard who joined me
tonight and to the folks in Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment for making
this event possible once again
Continuing with a proud tradition for me, I have been asked
to sing the anthem for the Remembrance Day service game which will take
place on the 8th of November. This is probably the most important game
of the year for me - as it is time to reflect on the brave men and women
who served both domestically and overseas. They fought for our freedom
and many of them never returned home again. They fought and paid the
ultimate sacrifice so that we can be free.
The Leafs face off against the Montreal Canadiens. Tickets can be
It's sure to be a great game - c'mon out - show your support for the
veterans and enjoy a great night of hockey!!
Hope to see you at the Air Canada Centre!!!

The National Anthem for the Argos
Well, it was a hard fought
game, but in the end, Montreal took out our hometown boys. Oh well, it
was a great afternoon of football and friends. The band sounded great
and everyone was incredibly supportive.
My thanks to everyone who have been so supportive
of me releasing my album. I am quite happy that it is finally out and I
look forward to the future.
My next event for the Canadian Forces
is the CFL game between the Toronto Argonauts and the Montreal
Alouettes. It takes place on Oct 18, 2008 at The Roger's Centre. Tickets
can be purchased here.
As always, I hope people can make it out to see the hometown team and
and show your support for the CF!

The dinner was such a success
and really inspired me! To see the atheletes there with their families
was really moving. I was honoured to be a part of this incredible event.
Special thanks to Rocco, Gail, Esther and all the other organizers of
this event. I'd also like to thank Brian
Roman for allowing me to share in his show - I had such a

Scotty Newlands Takes
Part In Charity Show for Variety Village
What can I say about such an
amazing run? Nothing short of wonderful! I was so happy to be a part of
this experience. The cast was incredible, the music was such a joy to
perform and it was great to have the opportunity to take part in such a
meaningful and important cause.
It was such an honour to share the stage with some truly talented and
wonderful people. My thanks to everyone at Keller Williams and the KW
Cares organization. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of such a
memorable and important venue! I also want to thank all those who came
to support the cause and see a great show at the same time!!!
I have been asked to take part in a charity show put on by
Keller Williams. It is called "TO Life" and it will be held at Todmorden
Mills on the 10th 11th and 12th of April. It is a showcase of a number
of Toronto-based performers ranging from actors to singers to dancers.
All of us have come together to raise money for Variety Village. The show will touch on issues
surrounding life - including everything from the highs to the lows of
everyday existence. There are comedic pieces and a number of more solemn
numbers - but each are great in their own forum.
Tickets are $30.00. I certainly hope that people can make it out to this
event. It's for a great cause and I am happy to be a part of such a fine
production. For more information on the show, please call: 416-997-4224.
I Hope to see you there.

the Anthems for the Toronto Maple Leafs
What an incredible game! Both
teams fought it out - but in the end - Toronto came out on top! It felt
great to start the night off with the anthems and the crowd was really
appreciative. My thanks to everyone who made this possible.
I will be singing the anthems for the Toronto Maple Leafs -
again as...myself. The Leafs face off against the Philadelphia Flyers at the ACC.
I'm looking forward to this game - here's hoping for a good night of

the Anthems for the Toronto Marlies and Toronto Maple Leafs
Well, it was an incredible day
overall! Although the Marlies lost to Rochester, the Leafs beat Ottawa
in a well fought match!
It was a true thrill to share the ice with the Chief of the Defence
Staff - General Rick Hillier during the pre-game ceremonies. Everyone
enjoyed themselves and a lot of deserving troops got the chance to see a
Leafs game - some for the first time!
My thanks to everyone who made this night possible. I'm always honoured
to be a part of it. For those who missed it, you can watch it on the press page.
Well, it's a new year and so far, it's been a series of new adventures
and opportunities for me. I continue to represent the Cdn Forces - this
time not as a Private, but as a newly commissioned officer - a 2nd
Lieutenant. Fortunately enough, I will still be able to perform my vocal
duties whenever possible.
So here's a double whammie!!
This day will be a busy one! I will be singing the anthems for the AHL
Toronto Marlies at 4pm at RICOH Coliseun and for the Toronto Maple Leafs
at the ACC at 7pm. I will again be accompanied by a composite band from
32 CBG for the Marlie's game and the Central Band of the Canadian Forces
for the Leaf's game.
