!, briz FREEDOM STAIRWAY (Travels on the Human Highway) National Tour History,
Multicultural- Other,
Music
The Freedom Stairway saga is based on the Slave Narratives conducted by our government in the 1930's. I have already performed Freedom at a number of schools and libraries. My Freedom songs portray the sacrifices and hardships that slaves endured to reach freedom via the Underground Railroad. The Freedom songs are sung to a multi-media backdrop, including beautiful black and white period photos provided by the Library of Congress to enhance the experience. In addition, I also include short narratives between songs and display African instruments from that troubled time in our nation's history. Plans are currently underway to bring this entertaining and informative program to the new National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati, Ohio. Don't miss out on the chance to include this wonderful program in your schedule this year.

This fast-paced program traces the development of the music video, from the movie shorts of yesteryear up to the big-budget clips of today. The program is illustrated by dozens of music videos from all musical genres, and includes a fun Powerpoint presentation. Topics covered include:

  • The evolution of music clips, from the 1930s to today;
  • How MTV launched and succeeded against the odds;
  • How videos and MTV changed pop culture forever;
  • The Top 10 music video clichés;
  • How the web ‘viral video’ craze is reinventing music clips;
    …and much more.

    As a highlight, the program profiles the top music video directors, showing how artists such as Dali and Magritte, and classic films like Apocalypse Now and Casablanca influenced their visions and techniques. Special attention is paid to the golden age of music videos, which began on August 1, 1981, when MTV played its very first clip, Video Killed The Radio Star, by the Buggles.

    Your patrons will discover they’ve been watching a lot more than just pop songs!

    Sackett, Richard The Mean Clowns Music
    Originally formed in 1979, The Mean Clowns enjoyed a brief stint of local NYC-metro area popularity, releasing self-produced cheese-ball 45rpm homage to the 3 Stooges, and playing CBGB's, The Uncle Floyd Show, U.S. Blues, Grumpy's Place and several other obscure dumps. Originally launched as a cover band boasting a set list of upwards of 100 tunes, TMC would crank-out Slade and Dr. Feel good covers while their more popular peers played it safe with insipid AOR covers of the day. Fast forward to 2008 - through the wonders of technology, three of the original clowns have reunited (Anthony/Heath/Priceless) - and with the addition of former Corpse Grinders/Brats axeman extraordinaire Jerry 'Pat' Pucsek - they have reinvented themselves as a totally insane, kinetic powerhouse of the unpredictable - starting out with cool covers of some of their fav. bands, from The Kinks and The Yardbirds, to the original Alice Cooper Group and Ziggy - The Mean Clowns promise to deliver many other wild & wonderful vibes from the 60's & 70's and beyond! Stay tuned, oh true believer!!
