The Crooked Mouth
Curious Theatre Branch
We will be honest with you. The Crooked Mouth is pretty hard to classify stylistically. Each of our members write songs, and each has a distinct and different way of coming at things. Our sounds range from folksy to Brechtsy and places in between. There are stories inside them. Many stories. We are also theater people, after all, and members of the Curious Theatre Branch, one of Chicago's oldest fringe companies and founded by Beau and Jenny over 25 years ago. If you've seen us live, you know that no one can tell a tale better than our front man, Beau O'Reilly. Beau and Jenny have been musical collaborators for decades—their previous band, Maestro Subgum and the Whole, was big, bold, cabaret-inspired, and beloved by many. Former Maestro fans have become our fans as well. We will let them tell you what they think. Certainly you can wander over to our music page, have a listen, and decide for yourself. Thanks for coming. We are always glad to see you. We are: Beau O’Reilly – lead vocals, cane, banter Jenny Magnus – drums, vocals T-Roy Martin – guitar, ukelele, trombone, banjo, vocals Vicki Walden – bass, vocals
