Can you believe another CB has come and gone? It was a fun party though I could only be there for the first half. (I’m working on a movie). I am thankful for Kyle Batley for these incredible photos! Some of the photos of me performing are by Elliot Wilson or Amanda Bent.

I played to a crowd of about 60. Teens and young adults love the live comics. I performed the “Beard Rap,” some family friendly stand up Comedy, and a fast forwarded version of “The History of Vaudeville and Performance Comics.” I Played a banjo song “You don’t need money to have fun,” which is one of my favorites from the new album, and an old song “The Anthropic Principle Lullabye.”

Squatter’s Temple played a very hard rocking version of their songs. “people can’t read and people can’t write” and “hop on one foot hop on the other” and many other of his odd lyrics will be stuck in your head for days. He is getting better as he keeps at it, and I recommend you catch him playing live near you.

The Phineas Gage play socially conscious hip hop with a powerful live band sound. They are incredible, not to be missed, especially if you like lyrics that have something thoughtful to say. Raif and Sonny Golden spar off each other with a charming rivalry.

Usually at these festivals i try to draw 50+ people, take their photo and let them keep the drawings. Some people collect them every year. I could only stay a little while, so I couldn’t continue the tradition this year.

Jazz Farm and a color vision of the stage

Jazz Farm and a color vision of the stage

Jazz Farm (or Jass Pharm… or some other spelling) played a chill set including the old standard “Goodbye Pork Pie hat. They are two talented musicians who happen to be married with kids. Alan used to play in Stov and Amanda used to play in “3 Chord Ho!” Sometimes they play at the Marlin or Ivory Jacks with a full band and get their Gypsy jazz on.

The next big Fairbanks Festival is Angry Young and Poor. It will be at Ester Community Park on July 15th. I will not be playing, I am traveling to Homer.
