Welcome!

Hi, I’m Roxy — a creative soul who values music, laughter and community as the pillar of my entertainment and educational programs.  I specialize in music education and roving entertainment at venues such as festivals, trade shows, birthday parties and more.  With many roles– as a performing musician, music teacher, Music Therapist, events co-ordinator and children’s entertainer–with each I get to laugh, sing and play everyday!   I have a wide variety of characters and skills to choose from, each with a unique personality that will tease a smile from people of all ages.  I invite you to get in touch so that we can customize something to meet your needs.

Here is some more information on my involvement in events and entertainment:

Events Co-ordinator

For the past two years I have been co-ordinating offstage entertainment and interactive experiences for the Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Festival to inspire play in people of all ages at the festival.  I have also been involved with planning and facilitating a variety of local events, including my role as a co-founder of Shuswap Event.  Shuswap Event is an online local calendar of events in the region, integrated with social media channels.  It has also expanded to book venues and entertainment and partners with a variety of community organizations.

Performing Musician

I am currently performing as a solo artist with easy listening pop/rock tunes or as part of Bright New Empire, a latin influenced gypsy jazz rock trio.

Family Entertainment

I have been clowning around for over 15 years, beginning my roots at the internationally known Clown Camp in Medicine Hat, AB–earning a Degree in Clownology.  Since then I have had countless blunders, hecklers, wardrobe malfunctions, technological difficulties, tears, hugs, knee-slapping good times and heaps of pure JOY!  Performances include venues such as trade shows, birthday parties, mall gigs,  festivals and more.  A selection of notable events include:

      • The Mall At Picadilly – Easter, Halloween + Xmas Events, Salmon Arm – BC (2010-present)
      • Roots + Blues, Salmon Arm – BC (2011-2014)
      • Home + Garden Trade Show (Burnco), Kelowna – BC (2013)

Entertainment Services Include…

A variety of children’s characters have blossomed, over the past 15 years, into an entire family of mishaps that make up the zany Clown Clan.  These characters were born to the wildly creative imagination of performer Roxy Roth, whose multiple talents include (but are not limited to):

      • roving tom-foolery,
      • facepainting,
      • creative balloon art,
      • bad jokes,
      • live music,
      • teaching music & workshops,
      • interactive sing and play-a-longs
      • living statues

All the world loves a clown. ~Cole Porter

Treble Spot Jams

A great fit for roving entertainment for any festival/event.

See a “Treble Spot Jam” on YouTube!

‘Treble’ is one of the many zany characters from performer and music therapist Roxy Roth’s Clown Clan.  This character is inspired by the creativity of students in her music studio and music therapy practice.  It is these student souls who challenge her to experiment and explore the possibilities…beyond the typical methods of music learning and experiences.  Roxy reckons that tying technology and music together, in our fast-paced high tech society, might just be a key to re-igniting the community music traditions of our ancestors, traditions which nourished the community and the individual’s well-being, a time when EVERYBODY played for the joy of it, and the process, not just the performance, was valued.  Roxy Believes this is a tradition we desperately need to become reacquainted with for the well-being of our society.
Her character Treble is always getting into trouble with technology and tunes in tow…Colourful sights and colourful sounds created on the spot put the ‘I’ back into YOUR iTunes. [/one_half]
