Check out the musical maestros who will be bringing the Greenwood Stakes to life.
Robbie and Matthew
Robbie (Wighton) and Matthew (Winkler) reside in Toronto, Canada and have been performing to crowds all over North America since 2005. They have played everything from pubs, clubs, patios, corporate events, weddings, surprise parties, bus tours, and are the only live music performance on the Edge Walk of the CN Tower!
These two can sing ballads with beautiful harmonies, beatbox and rap R&B tunes, rip a harmonica blues solo, all while having you singing and dancing all night along to the beat of their kick drum and tambourine. What sets Robbie & Matthew apart is our eclectic mix of songs from every genre and every decade, proving the term “you can’t please everyone” wrong.
