One of my favorite acts is "Mad Lib Songwriting" which involves asking the audience to replace the nouns, pronouns, verbs, place names, etc in a folk song to create new parodies like "I've Been Jumping on the Monorail all the Live Long Millennium" to the tune of "I've Been Working on the Railroad."
I have done this activity with kindergarten classes, festival audiences and open mics. Each time it comes out delightfully unique.
I encourage my audiences to sing along and like to start performances with a short singing lesson. "Take a deep breath, straighten your back, relax, smile and open your mouth wide."
I am a singer songwriter who accompanies himself on mandolin, guitar and piano.
