What’s this – crowd-control issues at an FYI Show? Okay, that's an exaggeration but as FYI sales rep Nancy Gibson explains, there was definitely an enthusiastic lineup of guests waiting for the doors to open at 10 a.m. sharp on Sunday, May 6 as FYI hosted its annual spring lifestyle show at the Royal Botanical Gardens on Plains Road in Burlington.

A mild and sunny day, free access to the RBG and plenty of attractions and great entertainment at the show led to throngs of folks eager to get into the show. “A few people were even trying to go around and get in early,” Gibson chuckled. And once the doors opened, it was elbow to elbow as the guests inundated the exhibitors. Not that anyone minded. “It’s been busy,” said Mitch Lovelock from the Hamilton operations of Zabell Hearing. Zabell teamed up with Siemens Hearing Instruments offering a total of four reps at their booth; also on hand were Kathy Gross and Kate Minnes from Siemens and Andrea Sloan of Zabell.

By 1 p.m., attention turned to the atrium at the RBG where 22 members of the Toronto All Star Big Band held court. Crowds filled the atrium and found other nooks including a second-floor gallery to catch the popular youth band.

Vocallist Michael Keyes rounded out the entertainment with a well-appreciated performance at 3.

“It’s been a great day,” FYI sales manager Kathleen Jackson beamed.

Here are clips of the Toronto All Star Big Band in concert yesterday.
