Born and raised in Nairobi, Kenya, Rahat has always had a passion for music especially from Hindi cinema, often known as Bollywood. From a very young age, she used whatever tools and technology at her disposal to learn about the songs, dances, lyrics and even made her own mixed tapes, many of which she still holds on to. This may reveal what era she was born in but that will not stop her from still pursuing her passion for music. 


Rahat immigrated to Canada in 2002 and made Sherwood Park her home. She is a proud Ismaili Muslim and joined the community band Jazbaa in 2017. Being part of the music scene again after almost 25 years made her realise how much she missed it. Singing for the band in Hindi, Gujarati, Swahili, and even some Punjabi there was always something new to learn. She would like to now share the different genres and diversity of music from India, including Hindi Movie hits (Bollywood), Ghazals and Punjabi with Bolly Beats.

 

Rahat is married with three beautiful children, who refer to her as Mama Bear, with love ofcourse. Her contagious and bubbly laugh is one of her trademarks and hopes to bring smiles and laughter into your homes too through Bolly Beats with her chats and selected melodies.

Martin considers himself a storyteller and that journey began at a very young age. He was about four or so. He would learn short poems and recite them to anyone who would listen. This natural ability to capture the attention of an audience through his art evolved into a life on the stage, screen, print and radio - primarily as an actor and a singer in musicals and operas, but also as a stage director, choreographer, producer, author and radio host. Martin’s radio roots go back to the late nineties when he co-produced, then later in his senior year produced the high school radio. He then hopped on a plane in March of 2000 and immigrated to Canada. Broadway is his passion. He dedicated the past 2 decades to learning about and practicing the art form itself and brings a tremendous amount of passion to On Broadway, which he is super excited to co-host with the amazing Rebecca Bissonnette. He currently resides in Sherwood Park, Alberta with his amazing wife Stephanie, daughter Cassidy and three retired greyhounds Wacky, Slider and Cash.

Rebecca has always been dramatic, borderline obnoxious, passionate, loving, stubborn, hilarious and vulnerable - now she's just owning it all.

 

A lover of all things art, she both attends as well as performs in anything she can get her hands on that allows her to become immersed in a story. A triple threat around Edmonton, Rebecca has her own production company DEPTH Perception Productions, is part of a dance company No Big Deal, sings with Not My Circus Singers, is a reporter with Arts Talk, an arts educator with Sage Dahlia Collective and of course a host with Sound Sugar Radio.

 

Rebecca is always looking for ways to use her voice and hosting shows on Sound Sugar Radio is an unique way to get to address issues that we all deal with, while being honest, sharing her experiences and letting people know they aren't alone.

 

If there's a controversy, a wrong to be righted, or a confrontation to be had, Rebecca will usually be smack dab in the middle of it.....with a grin.

Dan Moser was born horribly disfigured/deranged on Christmas Day. Shortly afterwards, his parents made the wise choice to set him adrift in the drainage ditch of a zoo. Luckily, he washed up in the Arctic bird exhibit. Not much else is known of his early life. Dan later reemerged to take his revenge on the city. After a run for mayor was thwarted by a video tape which revealed Dan claiming to have "played this stinking city like a harp from hell", he attempted to escape the wrath of the populace in his rubber-duck boat. Dan failed to escape and ultimately passed away after being pushed into a pool of poisoned water through a large window in his lair by a swarm of bats released by The Batman.

(EDITOR'S NOTE: It has come to our attention that this is not the biography of Dan Moser. Instead, it is the biography of The Penguin from the 1992 film, Batman Returns. We are terribly sorry for the mix-up. Dan's real bio is printed below.)

 

Dan Moser is an adult male.

 

 

 

 

Jordan Ward was born in 1985 on the coldest day of the year after a twenty minute labor. From humble beginnings he began his journey by playing on a junk pile and entertaining himself with his imagination. Jordan was raised to respect nature, to harness its power, and has survived many harrowing encounters including a bear attack.  He continues to perform comedy and he is not secretly a highly skilled crime fighter with a heart of gold. He likes to eat steak and enjoys cooking food.
