Thirty years of foolishness and tears: Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers “still kickin'”

A photo essay of Newfoundland and Labrador’s favourite musical-comedy troupe, by Zach Bonnell.

It’s been three decades since Newfoundland musical-comedy troupe Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers began entertaining audiences across the Island and the mainland. With a few dozen releases and countless sold-out tours under their belts, Kevin Blackmore, Wayne Chaulk and Ray Johnson aren’t showing any signs of slowing down.

Indy photographer Zach Bonnell captured the group’s March 14 show at the St. John’s Arts & Culture Centre. Check out his photos below.

If you’re in Gander, Corner Brook, Stephenville, Southern Ontario, Ottawa or Fort McMurray, the b’ys are headed your way and are running through sets of skits and tunes chosen by their fans. Check for more info.
