Pen & Piano Tour

4 musicians, 1 train set, a fire, and a sweet summer breeze

Description:

“Our world hangs like a magnificent jewel in the vastness of space. Every one of us is a part of this jewel: and, in the perspective of infinity, our differences are infinitesimal. We are intimately related. May we never even pretend that we are not.” 

Fred Rogers

“It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood.”  Mr. Rogers has a warm place in most of our hearts.  So when envisioning an acoustic tour Andrew wanted to celebrate his legacy.  We jumped at the idea to create a quaint theatrical film set environment to house an intimate evening of music among friends.  Pulling inspiration from 80s sit coms, Wes Anderson films, and Mr Rogers himself we crafted a playful evening of music, comedy, and heartfelt stories.  Rather than touring with an opening act we created one fluid show which weaves together music by 4 friends who love to play together; Andrew McMahon, Bob Oxblood, Zac Clark, and Allen Stone.  Throughout the course of the 160 minute evening Andrew shares tracks from his 20 year musical narrative — from Something’s Corporate to The Wilderness. Original solos to duets to trios to the full 4 person band covering Summer Breeze the evening is light and you never know who might ring the doorbell.  Zac Clark is welcomed to the neighborhood, Allen Stone suddenly appears through a painting in the wall, Bob Oxblood swaggers onstage in leather.  There’s even a mysterious Sand Lot inspired visit by Babe Ruth.  As the evening progresses we learn more about these men, as musicians, as friends and by the end of the evening the world feels smaller, a little more like a neighborhood.
