"THAT RAMBLIN' MAN" rambles on...
This is Wally's first original recorded song and the video that goes along with it. The video was shot in and around the town of Elora, Ontario. Elora is a very unique place well worth your going there and exploring all that it has to offer in the way of amazing scenery, quaint shops, tasty food offerings and friendly residents.
And because this is Wally's hometown, who knows; you might run into the big guy while you're there. If you do by all means say hello.
This is the VIDEO for Wally's second original song, "I Just Believe In You", Its lyrics were created by song partner, Richard Vande Sompel, who wrote it for and about his wife, Annie Price Bouchard. Keep a Kleenex nearby while you watch and listen.
Check out Wally Maggs singing a great country song, "THE BOTTLE LET ME DOWN".
He was performing this tune at the Golden Country Bar and Grill in Listowel.
Accompanying Wally was one of Canada's best steel guitar players, Dale Rivard.
REMARKABLE PEOPLE WHO ARE UNSUNG HEROES
Some of Wally's favourite places to entertain are retirement centres where seniors are living out their golden years doing a wide variety of activities. And of course entertainment by Wally Maggs is one of those activities. He does his best to bring his brand of country music, some rock and roll and a bit of gospel to their lives.
In doing so Wally encounters staff members; caring individuals who go above and beyond to bring compassion, kindness and caring to the lives of the residents. It's something truly wonderful to behold.
We are going to shine a light here on some of those individuals. First up are the gals in a Brantford retirement centre. Meet Karon and Mary standing there with Wally.
Next that threesome is comprised of Wally with Carlisle and Shannon, both of whom work at a retirement centre in Stouffville.
And of course the next one features Wally with support staff volunteers like Azra and Taylor who spread their special brand of love and caring at a retirement centre in Fergus.
Over in Brantford is a warm and friendly pair of staff members,Taylor and Regan, who work tirelessly to make life interesting for their residents.
And still in Brantford at another retirement centre we have Janis, a long time volunteer, whose friendly manner and cheerful disposition are truly appreciated by the residents there.
