Valley Meadows

BandComedyHip Hop

Valley Meadows combines hilarious lyrics, bangin’ beats and two extremely memorable characters created by a pair of award-winning stand up comedians and improvisers. The backbone of the act is comedy music, with heavy doses of sketch, improv and audience participation. Imagine Bob and Doug Mackenzie mashed up with the Beastie Boys.


Valley Meadows is the duo of Gary Schishynszenski (Chris Knutson) and MC Tom Johnson (Zach Coulter). The pair combine hilarious lyrics and high-energy stage antics with the bangin'-est beats to blow minds throughout the land. Where Bob and Doug MacKenzie meet Tenacious D, Valley Meadows emerges, fly enough to score in loafers and man enough to croon ballads about the rain. Founded in 2009, Valley Meadows spent the last several years honing their stage act. In 2012 they finally went in to the studio after a successful Kickstarter campaign. The product of those sessions is their debut, self-titled album recently released on Stand Up! Records. Knutson is the winner of Acme Comedy Company’s 2010 Funniest Person Contest and Coulter is the winner of the 2011 ABSOLUT Funniest Comedian Contest.
