    The Arrogant Worms began their journey to musical comedy success (oxymoron) in 1991 in Kingston, Ontario on campus radio. Those nine listeners were very impressed and The Worms could have retired at the top of their game but they kept going , into the frightening world of live shows. They were quickly abandoned by the nine radio listeners who preferred not to leave their homes. A new audience was cultivated and the meagre income from those early shows was enough to record their self titled debut album in 1992. The Arrogant Worms received airplay on national radio in Canada and were soon touring across their vast homeland.

    The Worms have since released nine more independent albums - Russell's Shorts, C'est Cheese, Live Bait, Christmas Turkey, Dirt, Idiot Road, Toast and most recently, Beige. They have consistently topped the sales charts for their distributors and have sold over 150,000 albums to date. Recognizing this valuable Canadian resource, American label Oglio Records released Gift Wrapped, a 'best of' collection in 2002. The Arrogant Worms released a DVD of their concert with the renowned Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, also a national television special. Quite the show.

    And it is their show that keeps the people coming back for more. The Arrogant Worms have provided tuneful and silly escapism all over North America and Australia in venues of all shapes and sizes - from small clubs to theatres to arenas to Disney to Central Park to The Grand Canyon. In 2006 they will embark on their first ever tour of the United Kingdom. They have shared the stage over the years with the brightest lights and dimmest bulbs of the music industry and no one got hurt. The Worms have entertained at corporate events, sung anthems at sporting events and emceed at major festivals. No matter where they are, they are having fun and the audience is too.

    The Arrogant Worms have become part of Canadiana. Their songs are used in lesson plans across the country and one has even made it into an English textbook. Their song "Dangerous" was played aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour for astronaut and fan Chris Hadfield. The youth of Canada have voted them the most popular band on a national radio show. The band that came in second was AC/DC.

    The Arrogant Worms were recognized in 2003 as the Touring Act of the Year by the Canadian Arts Presenters Association. However, their biggest honour came in 2005 though when they read in the New York Times that Carrie Fisher and Meg Ryan were singing along with the Worms on a driving trip in Newfoundland. Princess Leia!! And Sally!! That's just crazy.

    The Arrogant Worms have shamelessly decided that the world needs The Arrogant Worms. And so they will continue to travel the world extolling the virtues of the noble cow, taking Celine Dion down a notch and singing twisted lullabies to children. Maybe they can even win back those nine original radio listeners. Big dreams.
