The Clockwork Crooner project
With childhood memories of his father doing puppet shows & things like Punch & Judy
it was only a matter of time before Jake built himself a booth. Here is the result which was built and premiered last summer . The idea behind this creation is a human juke box where the audience CANNOT decide the 'actual' song but can control by turning 5 sets of cogs on the front a variety of settings. These are:
1) The setting be it 'Wild West' 'City Slicker' "'By the Shore' or 'Spooky Night'
2) The style Happy, Sad, Cheeky or Angry
3) The instrument - Banjo, Guitar, Uke or Accordion
4) The tempo - fast, slow, clippity cloppy, variable
5) Special Effects - Yodelling, Scatting, Bluesy etc
The One Man Knees Up Party
For several years now Jake has been performing bespoke parties for all sorts of folks. These 2 pics are from 2 different parties .
One was a cockney knees up booked for friends and families the other was a hen party for a lovely group of Dutch women who wanted the bride to be to become a one man band.
Jake is currently developing a webpage with testimonials etc and info on this new venture he is promoting
