Noir O’Clock

From the dim dark shadowy recesses of your mind lurks the last sonorous remnants of a beautiful dream gone bad. Enticing electronic Mata Hari’s dance to an otherworldly tango from the future to lure unsuspecting saps, like you, into an eternal quagmire.

Where sonic crime and passion collide.

Welcome, it’s that time … it’s Noir O’Clock.

Music Box Micro Stage

“I am a Micro Stage with a lot of Macro Magic. I travel far and wide, with the help of That Guy (my assistant), to bring performers of all kinds, and kind performer watchers together in whatever space we can all fit together in (just about anywhere).”

The Music Box is a truly mobile, self contained ‘micro stage’ (all battery powered), complete with lighting fx, 8 channel p.a. with on-board recording, and optional sitting (the famous Cherry Bench). Also, a mini box extension for rhythm accompaniment can be made available upon polite request.

Typically a solo, singer/songwriter venue, there’s nothing typical about the Music Box. It’s 4 foot wide/2 feet deep foot print (not counting 2 feet more of the apron), has handled duets to 4 piece bands; stringed instrumentalists to percussionists; keyboards to Autoharp; accordion to comics (even a comic playing accordion); a cappella singers to overly equipped Loopers (good thing there’s an apron). And the sound coming out of it is great. However, there is a height limit of about 6’2″, so tallers (or folks with big hats) will be on the Bench.

Whether out in the wilderness or on city sidewalks; on the beach or poolside; the B Stage at festivals and gatherings or the perfect backdrop for an on-line performance, the Music Box Micro Stage offers a Macro Show experience.

It is currently moving around in the Los Angeles and surrounding areas.

Prince Diabaté

Prince Diabaté hails from a prominent, Malinké family from Guinea, West Africa. He learned his art from his father, Djéli Sori Diabaté. Breaking with tradition, his father also taught Prince’s mother, Hadja Djeli Sira Cissoko, to play kora. The young boy became an exceptionally early starter by accompanying his parents to their concerts throughout West Africa. Despite his father’s disapproval, he decided to make music his life. When he was eight years old, form Guinean President, Sekou Toure, came to his home town, Kindia, for a celebration in Independence Square. Braving the outraged soldiers and his own fear, the young musician grasped his kora, threw himself at the President s feet and played a special song for him. Greatly touched by his skill and audacity, Sekou Toure became his benefactor, enrolling him in the National Children’s Theater in Conakry. At 16 years of age, in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, he stumbled upon a videocassette of Jimi Hendrix, and entered the international kora competition. Taking first prize that day ‘Prince Diabaté, Prince of the Kora’.
