Song Foolery Poster

Song Foolery

In 2006, I produced an April Fool's day concert at a local Boston comedy club (The Tribe Theater). The show featured three groups: the Loose Canon Chorale, a chorus which I founded in 2003; Inner D, an a cappella group with whom I was singing at the time; and Zubenelgenubi, a jug band I put together and led for the occasion. The show sold out the club. The set lists are below; titles highlighted in green are pieces which I wrote, arranged, or wrote lyrics for. Underlined titles are links to the MP3s from the concert. I also designed the poster for the show. Enjoy!-
