Bio: Jeff started promoting shows in small towns throughout Alberta and Saskatchewan in 1980. Eventually he saw an opportunity to produce top of the line tribute experiences and has grown Annerin Productions over the years to being an international business having produced shows on The West End and Broadway – a long way from driving a Ford Topez to gigs in Estevan, SK. Jeff loves music as well as playing hockey, golf, hot yoga and bike riding. The best part about this business for Jeff is watching an audience react to something he’s helped created, knowing that you are taking them out of their day to day lives for 3 hours.
Jeff’s favorite song: Jeff doesn’t necessarily have a favrorite song but he always wants to listen to the Beatles though.
Position: General Manager

Scott has been working at Annerin Productions for just about 12 Years. He started off with Annerin on the road as a fill in drummer with one of Annerin’s productions which eventually lead him to Road Manager / Stage Manager, and Creative director with numerous productions.
Scott now holds a position as General Manager of Annerin. Annerin has given him the opportunity to be on a team that creates unique, entertaining successful productions touring world-wide.
