About The Videos...

Here are some clips of recent performances hosted at The Creative Center, as well as several highlights from our 2013 season during which we took our show to several different venues around Greensboro. It was a lot of work AND a lot of fun collaborating with artists and venues alike. Our desire was to take a fresh approach to live creative events, and that's just what we did. We were able to incorporate live collaborative painting with improvisational music, live body painting with a jam band, and indie music presentations covering, jazz, bluegrass, Americana and blues, among other genres.

We'd like to thank Doug Mokaren for the videos of Sam Frazier and Molly McGinn, Lawyers Guns & Money, and Joanne Shaw Taylor. All other videos are captured largely for documentation purposes. We've been learning as we go, and among the challenges to editing large quantities of footage has been the often unpredictable lighting, not to mention the learning curve inherent in recording people who are, in fact, moving around a great deal. We've loved it all and look forward to learning more - hopefully you'll see our footage here improve over time. Until then, thank you for being gracious.

For the remainder of what we've been able to post you can go here. There's way more footage in the vaults and hopefully one day we will get to put up much more of it. For now, we do what we can given the time and budget we have to work with. If you'd like to help us do better in this regard, don't hesitate to contact us. For now though, enjoy these performances!

Talk of Teronus


Talk of Teronus with Wezo & Drave

We love collaborations and here's one that we are proud to be involved in. "The Talk Of Teronus" is a lively music interview and performance show. Hosts Dave Fox - A.K.A. Dr. Drave - and his partner Wezo get together with talented artists from around the Triad area to chat and jam; all in front of the camera for you to enjoy. There's no telling who will show up or what they will talk about, but there is always something interesting, funny, or unexpected that comes up in the course of their conversations. But, when it comes down to the music, you can expect nothing less than top notch performances. It all takes place in the Tone Lounge at Megatone Amps. So, grab a snack, a drink and a comfortable seat and check out these episodes from their first season.

To even understand what or where Teronus is, it's probably a good idea to start from the beginning. We can't promise you'll get all the insight you need, but at least you'll have a better glimpse into the mad genius that is Dr. Drave.

Guest Martha Bassett talks about bee keeping which sparks Wezo's curiosity and leads to some laughs before she sings with The Talk of Teronus Rimshot Band (featuring Chuck Cotton along with Dr. Drave and Wezo).

Wally West stops by to banter with the guys and tries to set the record for the most rim shots heard in one show. Then it's time for some signature saxophone playing as only Wally can do.

Rob Slater was the Wezo & Drave's third guest. They share memories and tongue-in-cheek comments about being neighbors back in the day. Rob takes to the Tone Lounge stage to play some tasty licks with the band..

The boys - Drave & Wezo - get off to a comic start  by declaring that their guest Roger Kohrs is a Frenchman based on his last name "Kohrs". Roger sets them straight . After the interview Roger lets his bass do the talking.

In this the last episode in their inaugural season out Talk Of Teronus hosts, Wezo and Drave sit down to banter with one of North Carolina's finest guitar players, Scott Sawyer We get to learn about some of the things Scott is involved in besides performing and there's some reminiscing about favorite players from the past.

Sadly we don't yet have a catchy video all about the incomparable Dr. Drave's co-host, **Wezo, whose harp (harmonica) playing you've been enjoying in the videos above. Still, you can listen to him play.

**Who also goes by Mike Wesolowski.
