April 8, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
That Great & Dreadful Day – Tall Tales From the American Swamp
Get Tickets Here:
This all acoustic “Swamp Operetta” is a play in the musical theatre variety. The “Tall Tale” is centered on the life experiences of the Blues Musician, Laurence Douglas Miner and his small group of cohorts as spun in the first person by the “Storyteller” in the Here & Now.
Standing ovations and rave reviews continue to propel this production to Sold-out performances EVERYWHERE!!
“There’s concept and then there’s follow-through, and when it comes to musical-act-meets-theatrical-performance, you can’t help but be impressed by the efforts of the Black Tongued Bells music. In their original stage production you’ll hear what’s been described as ‘Electrified jug-band-blues sauce with a Waits-ian twist’, see if your life is changed in a backwoods way forever.”
– Los Angeles City Beat
“This is an exceptionally special entertainment event—there is nothing quite like it anywhere — a class act all the way. It deserves the attention of audiences everywhere”
-Jana Pendragon, KXLU 88.9FM
“A juke joint-style amalgam of song, story, hootin’ and hollerin”
– Mindy Farabee, Los Angeles Times
“If the Rolling Stones grew up in Louisiana, they’d probably sound just like us”
– D Miner
