One-Man Orchestra. Unplugged. Unexpected.
ELECTRONIC PRESS KIT
The evening-length show is all about the stories.
The songs themselves are woven into a dense tapestry of storytelling and spoken word. The music, laid out like a magic carpet, invites the traveler aboard.
Lipbone’s roving lifestyle and unique talent have allowed him access to some amazing experiences. From time to time he has been court jester to the rich and powerful in exotic places, however, he more than
often prefers the spaces in-between, the worthier part of the journey: the journey itself, and the folks who populate it.
A chair, a microphone, a cheap guitar, who could expect so much from so little.
AN EVENING WITH LIPBONE
Lipbone is a one-man dance party who can get a room dancing, clapping and singing along if there is a living body within earshot. He is one of the few solo performers out there that can generate the sound and energy needed to engage festival crowds.
Swing dancers love him, Blues dancers are crazy about the earthy Lip-Bass and Lip-percussion and Free-Folk go wild for that intense Lip-Trombone. Its a groove thing to be sure.
Festivals and parties are the native habitat of the wild Lipbone. Watch him stalk his prey and get to the bottom of the hoe-down honey-pot like a black bear at the trailer park trash pile.Lipbone is a performer who’s energy can electrify a crowd. Rumba lines, Lindy-Hop, Swing and Boogaloo. Lipbone is your guy!
LIPBONE SOLO GROOVE THING
What’s better than a one-man orchestra? How about a three-person party machine! The Lipbone trio will take it there.
Seventies style groove to Twenties style swing, Lipbone has been cultivating his favorite soul and funk musicians across the land. Everywhere Lipbone travels, he finds the grooviest rhythm section and shows up to get down. Great backing vocals, deep bass lines, rock solid drums, hot guitar, fat lip-trombone and even special guests.
Lipbone has spent the better part of a decade refining his band-leading skills and his reputation as a top - notch songwriter/storyteller/groove-coordinator.
There is no shortage of excellent musicians who have joined this worldwide musical family. Wherever Lipbone travels, good times surely follow.
