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!

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!

So, here’s how it’s going work on the night. Our Master Mouth Piece’s will have five minutes to tell a story using ONE of the following themes: Books, Food, Home for the Holidaze, Love, The Road, Music (the themes we had for last year’s competitions). Our Guest Storytellers Satori Shakoor and Dameon Wilburn, as well as some local guests, will be our judges, and vote on a Grand Master Mouth Piece. There will be a surprise prize for our winners, cash prizes for all the Master Mouth Pieces, and more!

We will be serenaded by local funk band the Soul Delegation, and resident Mouth Piece DJ Cam will spin us into a dancing frenzy. This is not a black tie event, but the Rondo will be fancied up with tables and lighting, and we hope to create a snazzy atmosphere for this first annual event.

As per our mission, this event is FREE! It will also be sound recorded and put to podcast.

This Master Mouth-Off is only for Master Mouth Piece’s and the Guest Storytellers in terms of storytelling. So, you dear audience member, get to sit back, relax and enjoy the show! We will be announcing the next THREE Mouth Piece Storytelling regular season competition teams and dates so you can start thinking about your stories and participation!

Thank you again for all your support over the last year! We look very forward to seeing you at our first annual Master Mouth-Off event!

We are Mouth Piece Storytelling – Put Your Story Where Your Mouth Is!
