    A bit about Claude A. Godin (Saxophonist) – Biography

    A dynamic and versatile musician, Claude Godin creates mood and memories with music. Born on July 27, 1963, in Montreal and raised in the village of Robertville in New Brunswick, Mr. Godin deeply believes in sharing the gift of music. He spent much of his youth in New Brunswick and a decade in Prince Albert Saskatchewan, setting the foundation for an enduring career in the arts. He desired to see the west and later relocated to the growing suburban city of Red Deer, Alberta, Canada.

    Coming from an extremely musical family, Claude Godin was immersed in music from early childhood. Initial training began with inspiration from his father who often held jam sessions at the family home. He diligently focused on the basics and grew as a musician over the years. Focused and driven to perfect his art, Claude became well versed in Alto, Tenor and Soprano Saxophones as well as the Clarinet. He is also well versed in many other complementary instruments including: piano, guitar, bass and the drums.

    Claude invested time training with a variety of bands across the country while developing a love for what he calls ‘rootsy’ styles of music such as Jazz, Latin, Blues and Funk. He expanded his social circle to make contact with great players and producers in the local and national industry, those that encouraged his unique voice and expression.

    Claude is a promoted artist on the national scene and plays at open microphone opportunities to expose his style and the sultry pretty tones of his saxophones. He performs with several bands, some specifically designed for certain special gigs. Currently, he is excited to be forming a groove and funk band under his own name ‘Claude Godin Groove Ensemble’ and is performing with Edmonton Blues/Funk band -‘The Whisper Kings’. He has been featured as a solo artist on many albums with bands such as Greg Godovitz ‘Goddo’, produced by the Canadian rock guitarist Paul Dean of ‘Loverboy’.

    In 2011 & 2015, Claude won the prestigious ‘Saxophone Player of the Year’ from the Calgary International Blues Music Association. He has been featured in print and radio across the country and television on CBC. His enduring passion is; “To elevate the value and importance of the arts in our world, it is a gift and therefore should be treated with respect and shared freely with all humankind. If you can speak the language of music, share it with the world…it is yearning for it.”

    Todayville Top 5 features five facts about favourite fooderie… Earls

    on




  • Todayville Top 5 is a sponsored segment produced by Jock Mackenzie (learn more about Jock below).   In this feature we learn (you guessed it) 5 things about some really cool aspects of Red Deer that make this city, our home.

    If our very first segment, Jock features a staple in Red Deer’s dining scene since it opened in … well let’s leave that up to Jock.  Welcome to the Todayville Top 5 with Jock Mackenzie.

    Todayville Top 5 Featuring Earls Restaurant

    1 Heritage

    Earls in Red Deer was the seventh-ever Earls in existence. Bill and Rhonda Olafson purchased the franchise and opened the current restaurant in 1984. Chef at the time, Andrew Lam, is still involved. Over the years, additions to the west and north have been added as has the covered, heated patio. The patio is unparalleled by other outdoor dining facilities for comfort and its Hawaii-like greenery. Today there are over 70 Earls restaurants across Canada and the United States. The founder, Leroy Earl “Bus” Fuller, brought A & W to Canada and is also the founder of the Fuller’s and Corkscrew restaurant chains. 

    2 Community Support

    Giving back to the community is a cornerstone of the Earls Red Deer philosophy. Those in need come first: rebuilding the youth camp at Camp Alexo, the Youth and Volunteer Centre, support for the Women’s Shelter at their annual gala, title sponsorship for the last six years at Rotary’s Black Tie Bingo, a 5-year ongoing plan to support the new Child Advocacy Centre, wine and wine service at the preview dinner for the Festival of Trees since the Festival’s inception . . . and many more.

    3 People

    With over 80 people on staff, Earls has provided employment for high school and college students over its 35 year history. The Earls philosophy, the practical skill set, and menu knowledge make up the intensive training each support staff and server undergo. Consistency is a hallmark. Numerous staff members have made life careers at Earls–and that’s one reason why you can count on a great meal every time. 

    4 Menu

    Fresh ingredients are key! The kitchen deals with “just in time” orders so that produce and proteins (delivered three times per week) come fresh to each table. The menu is becoming more and more inclusive–it meets an ever-increasing variety of dietary needs: numerous gluten free and plant-based options are available.             

    5 Interesting tidbits

    Beer? Earls brews its own Rhino beers (pale ale, lager and a seasonal beer) in Surrey, BC at Central City Brewery. There are also local products from Troubled Monk, Blindman and Snake Lake as well as a wide variety of domestic beer.

    Four Earls “Test Kitchen” chefs travel the world looking for new ingredients and dishes. A “Test Kitchen” in Vancouver will roll out a new dish and tailor it to an appropriate market in the 70 locations across North America–the furthest away is Miami.

    Todayville Top 5 features the freelance writings of Jock Mackenzie.

    Jock is an original Red Deerian!  Educated at Lindsay Thurber and Red Deer College (with a stint at the U of A), he became an educator himself, spending 31 years with the Red Deer Public school system.

    It’s safe to say Jock knows Red Deer about as well as anyone (OK.. maybe not Michael Dawe).   As a confirmed life-long learner, Jock never tires of getting to know his surroundings even better.  That’s where the Todayville Top 5 comes in.  In each feature, Jock shares a few ingredients that go into the mix that makes this delicacy called Red Deer the place we want to call home.  As a well organized person who knows you’re busy, he’s choosing just 5 juicy tidbits to share each time.

    Parts – the difference between Good, Better and Best!

  • This month we want to talk about parts.

    Your GM vehicle is a finely tuned piece of machinery, and while it’s designed to run beautifully right from the factory, parts will wear out over time. We know you’ve probably heard the old saying “parts is parts” and maybe you’re thinking that there’s really no difference when it comes to what parts you use.

    When it comes to parts, you’ve probably heard the name ACDelco. What you may not know, is that ACDelco provides GM with Factory Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts for all of their vehicles and manufactures parts to fit most other makes and models. When it comes time to replace those parts, Kipp Scott GMC’s Parts Department has choices from good, to better, to best.

    First, the Good, ACDelco Advantage. These parts are designed to fit both your GM vehicle and your budget. From Brakes to Wiper Blades and everything in between, Advantage products offer fit, form and function for most makes and models, but a more attractive price. This provides a competitively priced, quality alternative to unbranded aftermarket components.

    Next, the Better, ACDelco Professional. These are the parts that you’ll find being used in the shop when higher quality is demanded but cost is a factor. The Professional category of high-quality aftermarket products covers most GM vehicles as well as many other makes and models.

    Finally, the Best! GM Original Equipment. OE parts replace those installed during the production of a GM vehicle and are designed to meet or exceed original equipment specifications. Kipp Scott has access to the ACDelco portfolio of more than 33,000 parts that fall into this category.

    In closing, parts matter, and Kipp Scott GMC’s Parts department works with your needs and budget to provide the parts you need to keep your ride rolling!
