The Childhood Edition – Thursday, Sept. 21!

 

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!

Mouth Piece Storytelling – The Danger Edition in Pictures!

Thank you to photographer Collin Meloche for capturing our incredible ‘Danger’ event at Villains Baestro! It truly was a wild evening -and we have the photos to prove it!

Congratulations again to the Master Mouth Piece Storyteller Geoff! He’s the owner of Villains so we already love him – but certainly adds to his cool factor, now doesn’t it?

Feast your eyes on these…don’t worry, it’s safe!

Thank you to all of our stellar and dangerously awesome storytellers:

Allie, Karen, Adam, Geoff, Jodi, Nick, and Larissa!

And thank you to our Guest Storyteller Craig Pearson, who literally had us crying, laughing, holding our breath, and covering our eyes!

Guest musician Brendan Scott-Friel tore down the house! Playing music from his new album ‘Quiet Cars‘ and getting dangerously close to breaking our hearts with his passionate voice and sick guitar talent.

Our Guest Storyteller Craig Pearson – bungee jumping!

MOUTH PIECE STORYTELLING – THE DANGER EDITION!

Ah, what a superb event we had last night! Our Danger Edition was so many things – emotional, riveting, scary, funny, exciting…and literally dangerous – I totally gave myself a fat lip from bonking my mouth onto the microphone! DOH! Our Guest Storyteller, journalist and writer Craig Pearson, gave a dynamic, heart-breaking and humorous photo presentation of his ‘dangerous’ life as a journalist. Honestly, I had to cover my eyes and hold in my tears a bunch of times! Thank you Craig!

It is my great pleasure to announce that the Master Mouth Piece for the Danger Edition is… Storyteller Geoff!

Geoff and I – cheesin’! Photo credit: Collin Meloche

We had seven brave storytellers take the stage – photos forthcoming – and each had a unique and terrifying story to tell!

Yes, there are prizes to win at Mouth Piece!

Watch out! We are a punny bunch over here…

After a day of dangerous down-pouring – the sun came out!

Seven brave storytellers filled the board, the stage and our hearts!

Thank you also to our musical guest, singer/songwriter (and dangerous heartbreaker!) Brendan Scott Friel!
