Sheesh, Windsor is a grand city!
Over the next five days, we’ll be having not one but TWO storytelling events!
Here is the first one: Shout Out! 150! A celebration of Stories about Canada! I’ll be hosting this unique event that will showcase a diverse cross-section of storytellers from our community!
Our next Mouth Piece event is on Thursday, June 1 – The Secrets Edition!
Featuring Guest Storyteller Jennifer De la O and Guest Musician Crissi Cochrane!
Both of these events are free!

Put Your Story Where Your Mouth Is!
Thank you to photographer Collin Meloche for capturing our incredible ‘Danger’ event at Villains Baestro! It truly was a wild evening -and we have the photos to prove it!
Congratulations again to the Master Mouth Piece Storyteller Geoff! He’s the owner of Villains so we already love him – but certainly adds to his cool factor, now doesn’t it?
Feast your eyes on these…don’t worry, it’s safe!
Thank you to all of our stellar and dangerously awesome storytellers:
Allie, Karen, Adam, Geoff, Jodi, Nick, and Larissa!
And thank you to our Guest Storyteller Craig Pearson, who literally had us crying, laughing, holding our breath, and covering our eyes!
Guest musician Brendan Scott-Friel tore down the house! Playing music from his new album ‘Quiet Cars‘ and getting dangerously close to breaking our hearts with his passionate voice and sick guitar talent.

MOUTH PIECE STORYTELLING – THE DANGER EDITION!
Ah, what a superb event we had last night! Our Danger Edition was so many things – emotional, riveting, scary, funny, exciting…and literally dangerous – I totally gave myself a fat lip from bonking my mouth onto the microphone! DOH! Our Guest Storyteller, journalist and writer Craig Pearson, gave a dynamic, heart-breaking and humorous photo presentation of his ‘dangerous’ life as a journalist. Honestly, I had to cover my eyes and hold in my tears a bunch of times! Thank you Craig!
It is my great pleasure to announce that the Master Mouth Piece for the Danger Edition is… Storyteller Geoff!
We had seven brave storytellers take the stage – photos forthcoming – and each had a unique and terrifying story to tell!
Thank you also to our musical guest, singer/songwriter (and dangerous heartbreaker!) Brendan Scott Friel!
Check out more from Brendan here!
Thank you to our sponsor Suede Productions, and Cypher Systems. And of course, to the team at Villains Baestro – our unofficial ‘home’ for Mouth Piece!
Stay tuned for more photos!
This THURSDAY, APRIL 20, 2017 we’re back at Villains Baestro for another edition of Mouth Piece Storytelling! Featuring journalist and writer Craig Pearson (Windsor Star) as our Guest Storyteller, we’re offering you a dangerous treat you’ve not experienced before – a special slide presentation! Craig will WOW and WOO us with his story of living dangerously as a journalist!
Local musician Brendan Scott Friel will open the show with gorgeous music, some of which may be from his beautiful new album Quiet Cars (that will be for sale!)! If you’d like to live on the edge and check him out before the show, please do so via his Facebook page – you’ll get videos, music and more! Creep away!
As per usual, the show starts precisely at 7:30pm! Sign-ups start at 7pm. *News alert* Villains no longer serves food but you can buy from from elsewhere and eat it there. They still serve booze, so there’s that!!
Come on out and share your danger stories, okay? It’ll only hurt a little. Live on the edge. You got this.
I am working with the Jewish Community Centre in Windsor to bring storytelling to the forefront of our Canada 150 celebrations! Yes, Canada is 150 this year and we need to celebrate by sharing our stories about why we love this magnificent country and province!
We are accepting submissions for true stories and our jury will choose 10 storytellers to share their stories LIVE on stage at a fancy reception in May. OH, and the winners get $100! Submissions are to be written, but if chosen, the storytellers will tell their story live on stage – so it’s a two part party!
Here is all our submission information – please share it with everyone you know!
We hope to hear from loads of people! Thank you for sharing!
Put Your Story Where Your Mouth Is!
Our season opener is just under a month away! We’re super excited to get back into it – and with the them of LOVE…what better way to revive our storytelling chops! We’re headed back to where it all began at Villains Bistro in downtown Windsor. Thursday, February 16, 2017 – show starts at 7:30pm SHARP! Like a arrow to a heart, baby.
And we’re ecstatic to announce our special Sponsor for this event: Renaud Partners LLP!
Since we all fell in LOVE with storyteller Daemon Wilburn at our Master Mouth Off Event, she’s back to woo us with a story about love.
This season, we’re adding a music element to all of our shows, so be prepared to hear some fantastic music before, during and after our storytelling! Please stick around! Our first musical guest is Carmel Liburdi, a fiery folksinger from Detroit.
Tell everyone! And get your Love Story ready.
Things to share a story about…
anything you LOVE – people, a book, a song, a food, a job, a pet, a place, an action (ex. I love to brush my hair…here’s why) – any all things that have to do with YOU and LOVE – we know there are stories there! Be sure your stories are UNDER 5 MINUTES. Sign-up waivers will be available on site. Food and drinks a plenty at Villains.
Will YOU be the first Master Mouth Piece of 2017?
With love…yours Mouth Piece Storytelling!
