I tell ya – Windsor Storytellers – YOU ROCK MY WORLD!! We had another incredible storytelling event this past Tuesday at Vesta Pizzeria! The restaurant was packed! Folks came to eat, drink and tell stories! We had eight brave storytellers take the stage and share stories that made us think, laugh, cringe, oooh and ahhh!
Our day began dark and early in the CBC studios with the Windsor Morning team to talk about Mouth Piece. As always, the studio was warm and cozy, and the questions were great! Thanks to Peter Duck, Mike Evans and the rest of Windsor Morning Team!
Here’s a link to the show so you can hear it! Thanks again CBC Windsor Morning! (You too Jonathan Pinto!)
Our set up at Vesta Pizzeria & Antipasto Bar was warm and festive. DJ Cam brought his sweet gear, and we set for the show!
Starting the storytelling with an honest, vulnerable, heart-felt story about her wanderlust beginnings, photographer/tour guide and Guest Storyteller Sandi Wheaton quoted Pico Iyer and reminisced about sailors. Such a wonderful story! Thank you Sandi!
We had 8 storytellers (well, 9 if you count when my hubby got up to share!) who were a bit shy to start, but after several musical interludes by DJ Cam, folks signed their lives away and took to the mic!
Our list of storytellers for the Home for the Holiday edition is:
It was a close competition with everyone sharing entertaining and beautiful stories. Poor audience has a hard task to choose a winner!
The Master Mouth Piece for the Home for the Holidaze edition is:
Oh such fun we had! Hosting, as usual, was a complete blast! I told some bad jokes, quoted our favourite holiday films, and shared a story about my soggy childhood leotards !
After the stories were told, DJ Cam played some of our favourite music and we danced into the night!
A Mouth Piece thank you to everyone who made this event another grand success! To the storytellers, the audience, the staff at Vesta (Orlando, Rio and Alexa), CBC Windsor Morning, The Windsor Star, our sponsors Suede Productions, photographers Marty Gervais and Steve Kriemadis, and the hottest volunteer ever Nick (my hubby!) – THANK YOU!
See you at the next Mouth Piece event…
