Bryce and Ken wound down their Ozzfest tour and it was HOTT.

Starting in Seattle and traipsing across the entire United States this summer, Bryce and Ken managed to keep several unique freaky acts working and survived a blow down. When I saw them I could tell they’d put their heart and soul into their dream and the schedule and miles had beaten them up. I met Ken years ago when he’d come backstage at the circus and hang around. At the time he spoke of pursuing his dream of creating a side show based on historical accuracy. He now has a museum quality collection of artifacts that unfortunately didn’t make this tour. Too hectic. But he has, in fact, followed his dream and I’m sure will continue to do so. It would be nice to see his entire collection displayed alongside his sideshow in a permanent setting. He’s also an accomplished drummer and record producer. Check out Shemp and the songs they’ve produced.

I met Bryce in Dallas when I was touring also and he’s been the force behind Ken to get this show on the road. Great guy and what a hard worker. He’s managed others into amazing careers and I’m sure will continue to do so. His company is called Brown Gravy Entertainment. This guy knows how to get things done.

Here’s to your recuperation and regrouping into your next freak show manifestation.

Thanks guys for the hospitality!
