Another 'On-Location' episode this week, Chad Vice and Unpaid Promoter Maryse Delorme attended the Find A Contractor Ottawa Flood Relief Benefit Concert held over 2 days this past weekend June 15th & 16th 2019 in the village of Cumberland ON, and even though it was a rainy rain day, we had lots of fun and people turned out to support the community with monetary and time donations, as well as supplies and other items to help victims of the recent floods of the communities lakeshore properties with rebuilding and fixing damages to their homes and properties affected by the recent infux of climate changes. We spoke to Tina Arvanitis, the Boss Lady of said event who rallied her friends family coworkers and community together to help those in need and have fun doing it. Rain or shine, the time was fine, and I'm happy she agree to share the message over the podcast.
I'm happy to report that the donations for the weekend totaled over $4500! Nice work people!!
Her portion of the episode is/was available on the Nobodies Are Somebodies Podcast Face Page and group as well as Find A Contractor Ottawa Facebook groups in order to promote the event when it was still going down. Now you can hear our chat plus a little extra from your boy Chad Vice in another special location episode of the show! Remember, rain affects certain technical aspects - and a little human error !

This week on the podcast, I'm proud to bring an 'on location' special from The Arena in St. Isidore, Ontario where The Voices Contest in Prescott-Russell hosted by Maryse Delorme took place on June 8th, 2019 and it went on like a total superstar event. Lots of great singers, performers and of course the judges that made one young lady's dream come true! By now we know that that young lady of all of 15 years old is Nathalie Burden (NATT B) from Limoges Ontario, and she is about to take her beginning career to the next level!
I was fortunate enough to speak with Felix Mongeon, Bella Cat, Nathalie Burden herself after she won, producer and studio owner Paul Harrison, Chantelle Blanchard and of course I pulled Maryse aside and got her post show feelings. The show was amazing, the performers even better, and big shout out to the judges Chantal Hackett, Josie Patenaude, Diane Marie George, Ed Lauzon, and we must not forget the entertaining and funny MC of the event, Brian St. Pierre
Links of what all that talent has going on are here below:

Xavier Himma originally did an episode of the show wayyy back in August 2018 promoting his cycle ride from the Canada/U.S. border to Argentina, where he was joining Chad Vice via Skype in the midst of his journey. Now he is back safe at home in the small town of Rockland Ontario, outside of Ottawa and he is sharing his entire journey with us! For fans of cycling and adventure or those who just love a good story, this is the return of Xavier Himma, We talk about some of the major events that occurred during his trip, some times when he felt not so safe, as well as where he is heading next. And yes, he is not home for long! Glad we got to catch up with him while he stays put for a bit. Below are some links to support Xavier on his journeys and to a service he used while on his ride!
