Easter May Week
A singer of death chants, breakdowns and haunted waltzes - a boiling stew-pot of vaudeville, blues, garage and lies.
A night of theatrical parlour tricks, airs, ditties and tall tales.
Joe Rubini is a Birmingham junkyard poet, armed with a reel-to-reel tape machine, death-defying ancient guitars and a zoo of electrical oddities. For one night only. On stage. In person. The nation’s favourite vaudevillian songster returns to the stage of the Corpus Playroom to regale you with songs, stories, storysongs, a spiritualistic musical séance and ghost show. And I mean that most sincerely, folks.
“An expert in rough-edged excellence, Rubini didn’t fail to leave his audiences in gob-smacked awe.”
***** THE TAB
“A lone performer, a lengthy set and a truly original act.”
