!, Spook Handy The Songs of Peter Paul and Mary History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
There's a great picture of the Beatles back stage at the Ed Sullivan show in 1964 staring in awe at Peter Paul and Mary. The Beatles knew they were in the company of incredible and important musicians. This trio did more to make American folk music accessible to the masses than anyone else. People all over the world sang along to "Puff the Magic Dragon," "Leaving on a Jet Plane" and "Blowin in the Wind." And audience members can't help but sing along with Spook as he leads them through this heart-opening, educational, and voice-raising program! (Occasionally, Spook is joined by Paul Prestopino who toured with PPM for 15 years as a back up musician.) An excellent program for Libraries, Arts Centers, Churches, Schools and other meeting places.

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!!
