11 A.M.Magic and Ventriloquism with Steve Charney and Harry

Steve Charney and Harry have been performing their unique brand of zaniness on stage for several decades, Using comedy with magic and ventriloquism, Steve astounds kids and grownups alike. But it’s Harry, with his knack for questioning authority and sticking it to the man (mainly Steve) who always steals the show.
Steve has written dozens of songs for Jim Henson and Disney and has published over 15 books. He was profiled in the New Yorker magazine and his podcast “Conversations With My Dummy” is available on iTunes and Youtube. His Youtube channel has just surpassed a million hits.

 

Live Music:  Too Lazy Boys  

Showcasing the songwriting of Chris Gili on guitar and vocals, with Rod Archer on bass and vocals.
Formed  as an offshoot of “The New Lazy Boys”, Chris and Rod have stripped down the full band sound, to its’ acoustic essentials.
Chris’ upbeat storytelling  draws from the full spectrum of American Musical traditions. At the same time both fresh and familiar,you’ll find elements of folk, rock, country, and traditional music;  with a little bit of Broadway and the bayou thrown in .
