Squiggly Vaudeville IV recap

July 21 we had a fourth edition of squiggly vaudeville with clowns, comedians, dancers, singers, a cellist and a baton twirler! Vanilla Jills is a perfect home for us, being all ages, outdoors, and having great food and beverages (including ice cream cocktails, or alcohol infused milkshakes). It may even be worth a drive)


I debuted a new clown act where I'm a square accountant who just wants to learn how to play bongos! ( but I'm a little scared of my bongos)

Mike Sevigny informed us which Pokemon moves he can and can't do.
The controversial and sarcastic emily doerr.Kailey mckay did baton twirling for us! (She said I could pick her music so I chose Perez Prado and Ursula 1000)

Owzzla had an enthusiastic volunteer!

It was very classy to have a classically trained cellist playing for us. I don't have photos of bijou Nix or ms muffit, but they both did two numbers. We had a blast, please join us next time, August 18. We will be joined by Jon deline, Trudy Bauchery, dame peaches Von killingsworth, and more!

Squiggly Vaudeville Recap

 

We had many performances from local entertainers who volunteered their time to support two local establishments that help make Eugene special:  Tsunami Books for Network Charter School.

Eccentric clown John Roy read us some ee cummings and played some silly music.

Mary Leighton and Maya Rabasa are running for school board and told us some words to convince us their a good fit for the position.

Jon Deline did magic, sang us a song and juggled! what a triple threat.

Student band “Feeble” played for us songs they have been practicing at school with their instructor Mara.

 

Ari and her Banjo is always a delight, such fast fingers.

I think Gabby Jesus is one of our funniest and most unique local voices. She told us about her problems dating.

The beautiful and exotic Souzana danced for us with her wings and her finger cymbalsDSC_0125.JPG18157665_10155490147953690_1853719634190074026_n18198652_10155490148228690_7602823161677442280_n18194570_10155490147633690_3793339723139333643_n

Royal Famille duCaniveaux

This drawing has been in my notebook awhile. I found a video of their performance from 2016 in YouTube! This troupe has many more performers that I didn’t draw, and I’m not sure about their costumes and hair color, and the page has some splotches on it because my markers were water based and I had it in the rain! It was a good show, full of laughs.

Squiggly vaudeville recap

Tunami Books in collaboration with me, Isaac Paris productions put on this show! Squiggle time! (maybe I was considering the name squiggles the clown because it sounds less dangerous than sketchy the clown, and I like tentacles.)  

  

 Jon Deline’s brave volunteers. 
 Ausla the ok is very enthusiastic!

  Invincible Vince amazed us!  
    
Ari and her banjo played us beautiful music!    
 
One of our clowns had her head turned 360 degrees! Child abuse, right?  

We had a great time! There will be future vaudeville shows in town! Next time I hope to have a belly dancer, an accordion a player, and do live art creation, drawing audience members! What else should we have? I’d love to find a contortionist, and a puppeteer or marionette artist.
