Under The Mistletoe with Those Guys

Made up of nine performers who represent a cross-section of the Winnipeg music and theatre community, Those Guys have built a reputation for dynamic, feel-good performances since 2009. Their repertoire, which ranges from The Nylons to Justin Timberlake (and everything in between), features complex (often original) musical arrangements performed without a single instrument. In 2012, Those Guys released their first studio recording, “That Album”. Their follow-up EP, “LIVE!”, was released in December 2014, followed by a holiday album, "This Christmas", in 2015. Their most recent album, “At Home”, comprised entirely of covers of songs by Manitoba artists, was released in February 2020.

“The guys take on one of my all time favorite artists here. Great job! …they really got it goin’ on and I’m so proud of you all!” -Jerry Lawson (of The Persuasions and Jerry Lawson & the Talk of the Town)

“To see ‘Those Guys’ live is to love them. They’re brilliant. I had no idea I was into a cappella until they came along…[Those Guys] make people happy.” -Ace Burpee, host of 103.1 Virgin Radio’s Ace Burpee Show (from Ace Burpee’s 100 Most Fascinating Manitobans 2012)
