Dale Walton recruited a rock-solid lineup of performers and artists for the first (but hopefully not the last) mind-blowing Dale Walton’s Rock N’ Roll Circus. Held at Gilly’s night club in downtown Dayton, this experience had to be seen to believed, as it was a multi-sensory experience enjoyed by all ages.
While musical acts The Rubbles, Team Void and c. wright’s Parlour Tricks aurally assaulted the audience with blistering sets, artist Mike Elsass lent his brushes, paint and canvas to any willing patrons, creating pieces of “community art” that visually interpreted the night’s festive atmosphere.
Add to that a gang of two-steppin’ clowns, an impromptu sword swallowing spectacle, and the pyro-acrobatics of Soul Fire Tribe, and we had the makings of something special.
I’m not sure what to call Dale Walton’s manic vision.
Call it magical.
Call it a “jam”boree.
Call it an experiment.
Just call me when the next one comes ’round.
