Charles Phoenix’s Slide of the Week: Felt Guitars in Bob Baker: This is Your Life!
Felt Guitars in Bob Baker: This is Your Life!
1970s vintage dancing felt guitars playing themselves take center stage at a puppet show extravaganza this labor day weekend at the “Fantasyland” of Downtown Los Angeles, The Bob Baker Marionette Theater – a landmark since 1961. Metallic Martians from outer space, glow-in-the-dark dancing skeletons and fez wearing monkeys along with dozens of other vintage handmade Bob Baker puppets appear in a wide variety of amazing musical/comedy acts from every decade since the 1930s.
I will host the colorful tribute to the world’s greatest puppeteer and puppet show extravaganza and tell the story of Bob’s life and 75+ year career as a puppet showman with a short film and vintage slide show. Cake and ice cream reception will follow the final act – a performance by the master himself!
Here’s to Bob Baker, his amazing Marionettes and YOU!!
