Background History: Over 20 years ago, The Cowguys started their performing career doing outdoor shows on the Sparks Street Mall, and in the Byward Market in Ottawa Ontario Canada. Starting out in these busy outdoor spaces helped the Cowguys to hone their performance skills, and helped them learn to stage a show, how to organize, build and warm up and audience. They utilize these skills today in Corporate environments, theatres, and even in school shows.
