Ymoonlightingsf1eah, it’s been a little while since I had a solo gig in San Francisco. Sorry about that, so…how’s Thursday?

Come one, come all: The One Mouth Band will be improvising with the audience and looping it up as part of the hilarity at this month’s Moonlighting San Francisco Variety Showcase at 50 Mason Social House at 8pm on May 28th. This will be my first time at one of these monthly, packed-house, too-much-fun events that’s quite a success!

tc-helicon-ditto-mic-looperThis will also be the debut of my nifty new Ditto Mic Looper with Mic Control™ as part of the show! This novel setup bears a striking resemblance to some “ideal looper” sketches I made almost 20 years ago, and I’m really glad that the technology has finally evolved enough to make it real.

Basically, rather than pushing buttons on the floor or wearing a small battery-powered looper on a guitar strap (as I have been for 5+ years), now I have a button on the microphone that turns the looper on and off. This allows me to keep my attention on the crowd, and the crowd’s attention on where the action is. That’s the idea, anyway. We’ll see how well it works in practice. I’m fully prepared to ditch the looper, rock another mic as needed, and give’em a great show just as I did for years before bringing any loopers into the act.

I’m really looking forward to this show, which will also feature a magician, a comedian, a DJ, an acappella group, a burlesque act, and other ridiculous surprises. There’s way more on the Facebook event, but here’s a bit about it to entice your click:
