Our Community

We create special profiles for those who provide a physical aspect to the performance; DJs, Actors, Performers, Dancers and Artists [coming soon] are all featured in addition to their volunteer profile

He still remains closely tied to the organization of the event, scheming up exciting new themes for future events. Not only is he the lead cat herder and motivator behind these events, he is also the lead stage designer and the wizard behind the ridiculous visuals at Caturday events.

Gary Bannon

Hi, I’m Gary and I like to party. After almost loosing all hope in humanity I decided it was time for a life change so I moved to the coast in mid 2013 for Audio Engineering & Music Production on the North Shore of Van City. After being invited into such a diverse crew and being introduced to an abundance of great times and great people the Caturday crew changed my mind and faith in humanity was restored. While attending my first Caturday event (Eden Prime) and being blessed with the opening set to Saturday nights adventure, they had shown me not only a party but also a friendship as close as family. With several small gatherings the next step into providing for the crew was when I was asked to Engineer a studio session for the Voice over portion of their 8 Bit Reloaded party, and it couldn’t have went more smooth and everyone delivered an amazing session. I want to conclude my section with saying I couldn’t be more blessed to have met such an awesome family of friends, and I look forward to many more amazing memories!

I started attending Caturday events back in early 2013, and fell in love with the people and atmosphere instantly. Everyone is so inviting, and the vibes are always positive, it is exactly where I love to be. I only started getting actually involved as of recent, with some theatrical contributions to the Ascension of Atlanteans event. Ive been long friends with some of the deeply involved members and figured it was time I circumvented the love I can offer through the community that brings myself and many others amiable experiences, and amazing memories. I plan to continue to help this community grow in any way i can and outreach to as many people as possible who share the same passion for this sort of thing.

ZoSo, aka Andrew Stackhouse, Is a man.. who is also a guy! You may know him from such rolls as “that movie guy voice in 8 bit”, and.. “that guy who is the evil dude in Atlantis”. Or you may have seen a fire show or two. ZoSo, like many wayward travellers, checked out a few Caturday parties here and there back in 2012, and quickly discovered his niche. These were people he could relate with, and be complete fools with! Artists, musicians, jesters, clowns, fire shows, freak shows and an extra large order of amazeballs with a side of rice! He has since then become increasingly involved in the making and creative efforts of the Caturday parties, and hopes to add even more creative content in the future.

If Jessica were actually, for real, a cat, she would be a creepy dark black kitty, and totally allergic to herself. But since the cats at Caturday are not the furry variety, allergies are not a problem. Aside from pretending to be a cat, Jess does all kinds of things for Caturday, since she has known them for like a billion years. Currently she is the fearless leader of the Interactive group, making sure everyone has as much fun as possible at events. Previous involvement included making art and monsters, creating gruesome décor, and generally making sure Caturday has just a hint of creepy and dark elements to balance its super fun and bright side. You can generally spot her looking very fancy and decked out in a costume, sometimes even wearing human faces as masks.

My first experience with Caturday was at 8 bit reloaded back in 2013. I fell in love with the uniqueness of the shows and the sense of community that caturday has. I unfortunately had missed a fair few shows after 8 bit but I knew I would be back soon. When I found out about the opportunity to help out with Guardians of the Mystics I jumped right on board to help with anything I possibly could. I helped work on the swords and shields, did a little bit of costuming (even if it was just for myself) and I was fortunate to be part of the theatrical team.
