Barbary Ghosts – Folk / Roots Music / Acoustic
Three castaways washed up on the shores of San Francisco telling tales of whiskey, women, and mutiny on the high sea. Having no boat and no money, they took to playing the dives, dance halls, and street corners of the Barbary Coast. The rest is history…
The Triffles – Rock Comedy Punk
How unexpectedly taxing it is to locate adequate images of trifles. I have been trolling the virtual galaxy for what seem like endless hours, my mind clogged with dense, creamy images of suffocated strawberries and pieces of dessicated cake, cast adrift in the cold lava of custard. These forlorn fossils of British dessertery sling me back to dark summer afternoons where the clouds hung low, and I sought comfort in the brilliant depths of the fridge, as the moon prepared for its evening chores… As for the band, it’s a multilayered melange of odd-shaped bits that stick in your throat and make you want to sing for joy! Trifles! And now, the all-new MINI TRIFLES!!! It’s the Trifles gone all cute and acoustic, with accordion, vibraphone, tinkly-tackity percussion, and even a bit of violin. Same people, same songs – VERY DIFFERENT!!!
Cheshire Rock Opera
Cheshire Rock Opera – Psychedelic / Classical Opera and Vocal / Melodramatic Popular Song
The Annual Cheshire Rock Opera
Culminated from an early love of the writings of Lewis Carroll (who was also a favorite literature of my household), into a rock opera which features his effect on popular music & some of the poetry from the book set to music of my own device. it’s first performance, first show was january 27, 2004 @ Van Kleef’s in Oakland. It was quite a production including the queen’s concert, tea party trio, suitcase puppet show of walrus & carpenter and the jabberwock monstermasks. Twas a mad evening of fun… [myspace]
