Thanks for the invite Heather. 

I have been trying to get a puppet slam together here in Detroit for years but haven't been successful with it yet.

This is subject that I am extremly interested in. I have never considered myself as a childrens intertainer, yet that is often what I do. My wife Is a Head Start Teacher so naturally!  I have often wanted to work nightclub crowd here in small town USA... I'm just not sure what kind of mixed message I might be sending to the community.

I know like everythingelse... you have to have a gimick... well I've got mine all worked out... plus I've made friend with some of the local bands so I think I'm going to give it a go inbetween there breaks. Wish me luck.

@Ron

Where are you located? 

 

Here in Orlando, we've had puppet slams held at a children's theater (after hours, of course!) that have been big successes. Bust a rod with your friends in the band and let us know how it goes!!

@Brad

I know it's not exactly next door, but it's not too far either: Toronto's One Night Slam is organized by Andrew Young from PuppetVision.com.

Have you ever been to one?
