Why an Interview,,,
Over the years we have been able to meet and talk with some very interesting people. They have shared with us their knowledge and have provided us with a great deal of insight as to how and why festivals and events work and why they are so important to our communities and to the Province of Ontario. With this in mind, we decided that we wanted you to meet and hear from some of the wonderful people who work so hard to provide us all with such wonderful Ontario Festivals and Events! We are pleased and proud to present "THE INSIDE SCOOP"!

Interview with Spider Jones (Part Two)
Master of Ceremonies/Motivational Speaker/Radio & TV Personality
Love Train Revue Show
Spider met George St. Kitts at CFRB Radio and has been a fan of George’s for years. As well. Spider tells me that George is most likely one of the greatest performers around and is an amazing producer as well. They hooked up and wondered about hosting a tribute to Black History Month through music. He tells me that they thought that this production would be a great way to show the “pride in what we gave to pop music”. It’s about recognizing the contributions over the years and to help raise awareness regarding artistic contributions made by members of the Black Diaspora. Spider himself is an accomplished singer (although as a professional world renowned motivational speaker, Spider tells me most people are not aware of his vocal talents). Spider has his own 10 piece band called Spider Jones and the Fabulous Web. Spider tells me that “music is his passion”! He states “music is like opium to him, he gets high on music”. He comes by singing naturally and attributes his focus and part of his success to his strong family unit. Specifically, Spider gives praise to his “closest friend”, his wife, partner of 37 years. He says “she keeps me anchored, she is a great advisor and very logical”. You might be wondering why I asked Spider all of these personal questions. He has led an incredible life and journey. He is a most interesting individual and I wanted to share with you some of his story to help you become aware of the wonders of such accomplishments.
