My trip to the Circus, or trippin' on the circus...

The Get-Up, Silver Hat & Gloves, Lester Bowie influenced Lab Coat,    
The Work Station

There is a great thing in Joshua Tree, it is the Zircon & Wish Circus! I was honored to be part of the Ted Quinn Ensemble that closed the show on 12-26-16. Other performers in the Quinn ensemble were, Jeff Boaz, Leslie Mariah Andrews, Kip Powell, Lisa Mednick Powell and Sage Quinn-Blair.
We performed three of Ted's songs and Little Drummer Boy featuring Sage on drums.

The hosts of the event were the Aerial performing artists  Jim Zircon Oliver and Wish PoolOxte. They ended the second set of aerial performances with an amazing duet!

On to the Circus!

I can barely contain the excitement I have for this gig! In the world of "life-events" playing at the circus looms large in my mind! I have the honor of performing with Ted Quinn on the day after Christmas (12-26-16).

If you need an excuse for a desert holiday to Joshua Tree on the day after Christmas, this may be all the push you need. Those awkward days between Xmas and New Years Eve.....what to do....what to do?

Come to Joshua Tree! The Circus, The Park, The Desert. More fun than loitering around the house watching TV! Come on down!

The thing I love about the Santa Ana Noise Fest are the surprises!

 The thing I love about the Santa Ana Noise Fest are the surprises!

Travis brought a siren that started its life on a police motorcycle and traveled through the band LOCUST and ended up with X-Eyes. The original plan was for the motor cycle cop to tilt the siren to rub on the tire of the motor cycle to cause it to operate.....Low Tech Style....

The festival was amazing this year. A great crowd and great performers! I was a fine and noisy time for all.

A big thanks to Astral Violet and Monks for the video. The little TVs across the front of the stage were cute!
