The boogie boy blues show is a live, interactive, theatrical performance of the first volume of the graphic novel
titled Boogie Boy Blues & The Music Awards. Singer, songwriter, entertainer, Ron Beer performs the show along with his associates,
using a wide range of musical instruments and voices for each character in a unique and captivating way. The show is largely influenced
by music- blues music in particular. A variety of instruments, not introduced in the musical curriculum, are used to enhance the performance.
Electric guitars, banjos, melodicas, wave drum, wood flute, and the occasional harmonica are brought to life during the boogie
boy blues performance.
While Ron Beer voices each character in the Stage Show and plays his instruments, the graphic and
novel images are projected onto a screen used as a backdrop to the performance. The most appropriate locations to host a boogie boy
blues show are in either a library, gymnasium, or large classroom setting. A projector is supplied by boogie boy, however, a screen
needs to be supplied by each hosting location.
All of the elements of the Stage Show continue in the Puppet Rock Show, however
now the characters come to life as you actually see Boogie Boy meet and face the other characters in throughout presentation. Ron
introduces the show with his puppet pal Boogie Boy and describes the story line to the audience. He then performs Act I of the story
allowing the characters to interact with the other puppets and the audience. To end Act I, Ron once again comes out front with a brief
musical performance, then on to Act II which also ends with a musical performance.
