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!
Thank you to Villains – Geoff and Ian and the rest of the staff. Thank you to Suede Productions our forever sponsor, and Cypher Systems for our prize sponsorship. Thank you to Lauren Hedges for doing sound and taking these beautiful photos! Also, for keeping our podcasts alive and well! Thank you to Jeni De La O and her family. And, of course, thank you storytellers and audience – we can’t do this without you!
May the stories continue to flow and grow!
PUT YOUR STORY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS!
Each Mouth Piece Storytelling edition is sound recorded – live off the floor! This is to carry out part of our mission which is to preserve and share the stories you tell. We are proud of our storytellers and are dedicated to keeping the legacy of their stories alive forever.
So, stay connected to our podcasts on SoundCloud!
Here is a link to all our shows...but for the first couple -which are listed on this page as well!
Be sure to listen, remember, share and continue to share your stories!

Put Your Story Where Your Mouth Is!
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.
Join us at our next Mouth Piece event – The Secrets Edition! Thursday, June 1, 2017
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!
We had seven brave storytellers take the stage – photos forthcoming – and each had a unique and terrifying story to tell!
Thank you also to our musical guest, singer/songwriter (and dangerous heartbreaker!) Brendan Scott Friel!
Check out more from Brendan here!
Thank you to our sponsor Suede Productions, and Cypher Systems. And of course, to the team at Villains Baestro – our unofficial ‘home’ for Mouth Piece!
Stay tuned for more photos!
