For THREE nights ONLY, (February 28th, 29th and March 1st) the Fountain Room
will be transformed into a professional theatre, with elaborate sets,
lighting, and sound.

Upon arrival, you will enter into the living
breathing swamplands of the Louisiana Bayou, and you will be taken on a journey back in time, to the depression era of the early 1900’s.

With
a cast of seven, through clothing, set design, and music, you will
venture back nearly 100 years, to witness first hand, what life might
have been like during such a pivotal point in
American history.

To accomplish this with a powerful sense of realism, the Director has
chosen the colorful life and times of legendary Blues and Gospel artist
"Laurence Douglas Miner", born and raised on the outskirts of Baton
Rouge, Louisiana, in 1923. The story is delivered through the classic
theatrical medium of "narrative" and "song", with Laurence himself
as the storyteller. It is not made clear in the history books, whether
or not Laurence was a real, or fictitious character of the era, and in
the end, it is up to you, the audience, to decide. Laurence takes us on an enlightening roller coaster ride of stories and songs, and he treats us to an eye opening and entertaining glimpse of life in these economically troubled times.

Through
his music, he turned the "Blues" into "Gospel", and oppression into
hope. He will captivate you, and move you to your feet, your soul will
dance it’s way home after this performance, guaranteed!

If you are in the Los Angeles area, you will want to check this concert.  You can call 323.284.8081 to reserve your tickets. Most of the proceeds will be going to help people in Kenya who have been going through crises.  This event is sponsored by Artist @ the Fountain, an organization that I co-founded with Daichi Kimura where we appreciate artists as well as fight for social justice.
