Sketchy Jésus and the Questionables is a loose collective of musicians and vocalists that has no permanent members, no genre, no formal identity, and no egos. As a label for whichever group of artists happens to coalesce for a Post Productions project, when Sketchy Jésus and the Questionables materializes into a brief period of existence its purposes are to explore and nourish creativity, empower artists – and continually strive to tiptoe the thin line dividing sincerity from satire and authenticity from parody. Each project by Sketchy Jésus and the Questionables is a work of sincere, authentic, devout satire and parody as a form of creative exploration. How far can a song be pushed, tested, stretched, and vivisected before it ceases to be that song? What deep truth can we learn by drawing attention to a song’s clichés? We have no idea and we’re fine with that.
Musical Director/Project Leader/Composer - Bass
Shane Trowbridge is the musical director, project leader, session bassist, and composer for this unique festive project. When he isn't working on unique Christmas albums, he is also a film director, screenwriter, film composer, and bassist for the bands The Cursed & The Graceful (EP coming soon) and EarthBound (undergoing a name change and a re-recording of an old release). His favourite pastimes are playing Zelda games, watching movies, eating spicy food, and doing so many artistic projects that he has no time to do the first three activities. This Christmas album was a challenging, ambitious, yet enjoyable ride! If you don't like Christmas music, we think this album will change your mind. Happy holidays! Christmas rocks, Abode rocks, Post Productions rocks, and you rock for supporting local art!

After years of playing guitar in his room with a combo amp, he discovered the world of amp sims and Digital Audio Workstations in 2020. This newly discovered obsession sent him on a deep dive into music production that led him places he never thought imaginable - being a full-time member and writer in two bands and founding his own mixing and engineering company. The journey of taking a song from imagination to final product is what fuels his passion. He cannot wait to explore more genres, artists, and audio!

A relative neophyte and dabbler in music, Michael K. Potter is the Managing Director of Post Productions and co-owner of The Shadowbox Theatre. In addition to his work as a director, producer, educator, philosopher, writer, and actor he has found time over the years to experiment with punk and folk performance thanks to the low standards of his collaborators. Michael’s musical influences include David Bowie, Dolly Parton, Trent Reznor, and Peaches.

In 2022 he received an award for Leadership in the Performing Arts (theatre) from Windsor Endowment for the Arts.
