Confessions of a Radical Chicano Doo-Wop Singer
Sun, October 15, 2017, 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM PDT
Confessions of a Radical Chicano Doo-Wop Singer--a solo multimedia theater experience from Casa 0101 Theater in Boyle Heights--traces the musical and personal journey of ground-breaking musician, artist, poet, and Boyle Heights native Rubén "Funkahuatl" Guevara. The piece takes us from Guevara's beginnings as an ambitious teenage doo-wop singer in the 1950s and on through the extraordinary six decades that follow. Supported by archival video clips, photos, and of course, music, Confessions reveals a roller-coaster career with dizzying heights of success that saw Guevara performing alongside the likes of Tina Turner, Bo Diddley, and Frank Zappa; opening for the Doobie Brothers T-Rex, and Three Dog Night; and acting in and composing for films with Cheech & Chong.
