Joe Craven, "The One Man Joe Show"
The Mendocino Stories and Music Series is delighted to present "The One Man Joe Show "Jawbones, Canjoes, and Cakepans; The Spokenfolk of Joe Craven" on Saturday, April 6. Wherever he is, Joe's at home and loving every minute of it. Music starts at 7:30PM at the Mendocino Hotel.
Picture a stage that looks more like a yard sale; found objects from the natural environment as well as dumpsters, yard sales & thrift stores. Throw in string & percussion instruments from around the world and around the house. Connect this with a dash of technology involving plugging in electric bedpans, 3 stringed thing-a-majigs and looping landscapes of sound all created in the moment by Joe. Then toss rhythmically with some corny jokes, a little theater thickener, a pinch of audience participation and voila! Welcome to "The Joe Show."
