An award winning hip hop artist and accomplished host, the Professor has performed all over the world at everything from festivals to wedding parties, hip hop shows to bizarre burlesque. A regular on the worldwide convention and festival scene he has played everywhere from Canada to Cambodia.
With a career spanning a decade, Professor Elemental first got noticed with ‘Cup Of Brown Joy’ which notched up over two million views and headlines in the national press. This was soon followed by a scuffle with another rapper named Mr B, resulting in the follow up ‘Fighting Trousers’; which has been viewed over three million times and gained worldwide acclaim.
A word about Professor Elemental appearances
Yes, Professor Elemental is coming all the way from Brighton circa 1897. We're stupid-excited, too. Here are some things you might want to know…
- Tickets currently members-only. This was a tough one for us. To accommodate the people who support what we do (a 3-day extravaganza), Saturday night's show is reserved for "members". If/when we can extend availability, we'll update here and on our Facebook page. Inquiries will be met by the stony silence of very busy event coordinators.
- Kids Show. (Saturday 4pm) The Professor's show at the Hootenanny is 21+. But we wanted to ensure under-age folk can see him. We've scheduled an UNDER-AGE ONLY show at the Key City Theatre. This show is free to:
- Anyone under 13 accompanied by a Membership-carrying adult
- Anyone 13-20 with a Student Pass
Any adult MUST be accompanied by child under 13
Hot Damn Scandal
Hot Damn Scandal finds its songs under park benches and in forgotten alleyways. The resulting outlaw ballads, dirty jazz, circus freakouts, shanty-rags, string band funk, lonesome heart-breakers, and whiskey bottle love songs blend together in a sweet song syrup somewhere between a ramble and a roar. Sometimes called ‘Northwest Devil Swing’, Hot Damn Scandal pulls no punches and and puts thunder in your molasses.
The Green Fairy wishes you welcome. Step into a slightly altered reality to savor the scourge of Paris's intelligencia. Experience an exemplary selection of absinthes from around the world crafted and pains-takingly sampled by our panel of deranged, eccentric and irredeemably disordered experts. Every last one of them now willing to promise you've never tried better. From here on out, all states are altered.
Ranger and the Re-Arrangers
Seattle Gypsy jazz band Ranger and the “Re-Arrangers” evoke the spirit of a Paris cafe and the raucous energy of a Gypsy campsite with their version of Gypsy jazz. “At the heart of their sound is Ranger Sciacca's sweet violin playing… his sense of melody and daring improvisations” (World Rhythm). The band’s repertoire includes swing standards, traditional Gypsy melodies, the music of Django Reinhardt, and Ranger's unique originals.
