One of the longer running Canadian trios of comedic songwriters and vocalists, The Arrogant Worms have been combining those elements along with a compelling stage presence to entertain audiences far and wide since 1991.
From a 2013 blog review I wrote after seeing them perform at The Calgary Folk Club, "there's plenty of vocal and musical talent to back up the silly. Which is why they continue to slay listeners with hilarious tracks like "The Guy Who's Always Out Of Tune", "Uncle Lou", and "Jesus' Brother Bob".
I chat here with Chris Patterson about the wide range of venues they have played for over a quarter of a century, the current murky waters of both the music business and humour in the age of social media, and discover a bit about the 2017 release The First Farewell Album.
The Arrogant Worms are Chris Patterson, Mike McCormick, and Trevor Strong.
