Yard Dogs Road Show
Conceived by Eddy Joe Cotton, Fletcher
Fleudujon, and Miguel
Strong, the Yard Dogs
started out in San Francisco as a small jug band. Several
years later and they became
a full-blown tour group with burlesque
dancers, jugglers, fire eaters, a sword swallower,
and an assortment of musical
characters. It's difficult to describe the goings on,
however it is very
entertaining show with over a dozen cast members, numerous
costume changes, and
a variety of musical scores that range from
campfire gypsy through blues, jazz,
Joe operated as the main barker for the show which included "Guitar Boy",
"Hellvis", and "Miz Lily Rose
Love." You might have also run into Five Livrd Larry,
Sidecar Tommy, Lil
Leila, Bellpodd, Tuesday Blue, Tobias, Ricardo, Washboard,
and the Hellvettes.
Their costumes were very colorful, the music was lively and
varied as were the
acts. Lots of spandex, fire, hocus pocus, music, snake medicine,
girls, and a few circus acts such as Tobias The Mystery Man pounding a nail into
his nose! It was show business at it's finest.
