FLOOD EDITION – Photos and More!

The Special ‘FLOOD’ Edition of Mouth Piece Storytelling took place on Thursday, September 21, 2017 at Villains Baestro.

It was a hot, sunny, beautiful day! Although we had a small crowd, it was the perfect crowd! We settled in and listened to musician Dominic Carlone sing us some wonderful ‘water’ songs.

We had six incredible storytellers sharing stories dealing with all sorts of floods!

Storyteller Stefan – it was his first time up at the mic but he’s a total natural!

Storyteller Stefan started us off with a musical vibe of his own!

Storyteller Tammy shared a story about some leaky bladders. Construction bladders! It was her first time at the mic as well – and she rocked it!


Storyteller Karen told us about her grandmother’s beautiful flood home care and love.

Storyteller Geoff, a past Master Mouth Piece, made us laugh to tears with his Istanbul story.

Storyteller Peter had a load of a story. #shitty! Check out his facial expressions – a born storyteller!

Storyteller Alicia, also a first-time Mouth Piecer, gave us one powerful story of the flooding of the blood.

Because of the generosity of several local businesses, we were able to give each storyteller a gift for braving the stage, and AWARD THREE PRIZES FOR MAST MOUTH PIECES!

THANK YOU TO OUR FABULOUS DONATING FRIENDS AT 

Suede Productions

Windsor Vacuum

DeZenio Hair Salon

The Mouth Piece Family

The generous audience filled out their forms and voted on three storytellers as the winners or the MASTER MOUTH PIECES.

Congratulations to storytellers….GEOFF, PETER AND ALICIA!!

Each storyteller will advance and continue onto our annual Master Mouth-Off!

Oh, and did we mention that CBC NEWS was at our fancy little event? Indeed, they did! Journalist Chris Ensing came to cover our show – and we made the news!

CHILDHOOD STORIES WANTED!

Our next Mouth Piece Storytelling event will take place at Villains Baestro (256 Pelissier) on Thursday, September 21, 2017. We will feature guest storyteller Janice Smith, a laughter yoga instructor with a mouth not just for laughing but for sharing incredible stories! On guitar, Dominic Carlone, a major staple of Windsor’s music scene, will bring us original and cover tunes.

So childhood…we don’t know about you, but come September when the scent of Crayola and new running shoes is in the air, we get crazy nostalgic. Do you feel an aching need to buy a new lunch bag? Me too!

What are your childhood stories? Is there a back-to-school moment you just can’t forget? How about a bad haircut or an outfit you just can’t forget? Maybe you built a fort or took a trip that is forever in your storytelling repertoire? Whatever it is that you’ve lived through in childhood  – we know there are countless stories you can unload on us!

We hope to see you there! Bring your memories wrapped in a childhood story! We are all ears!

The Secrets Edition – Photos & More!

Mouth Piece Storytelling – The Secrets Edition! 

Thanks to Guest Storyteller Jeni De La O, the theme of secrets was uncovered! Right away, I knew it would be a wonderful theme for our little storytelling engine that could! Jeni is a Moth storyteller (she recently was on a main stage as a guest storyteller – this is a MAJOR storytelling accomplishment!), and she began her own bilingual storytelling series in Detroit called Relato! Detroit. This is Detroit’s FIRST bilingual – Spanish/English – storytelling event! Congratulations to Jeni for creating another wonderful space for storytelling.

At our Secrets event, Jeni shared a true, fascinating and love-filled story about her double life. Be sure to check out our podcast to hear her tell it! We were lucky to hear Jeni tell not one but two stories! Thank you Jeni!

A super thank you to all our Secret storytellers: Dorothy, Geoff, Ian, Kate and Steven.

AND CONGRATULATIONS TO THE MASTER MOUTH PIECE: STORYTELLER DOROTHY!
