I'm performing at an amazing witchy market so there will be lots to see and do at the show! I hope you will come!!! It takes place at Avant Garden.

Apparently, the episode of Mysteries at the Museum in which I play Joseph Pulitzer aired tonight on the Travel Channel. It airs a few more times this weekend. Scroll for episode name and info. I haven't seen it so let me know if I should be proud or ashamed of my performance. Lol! #mysteriesatthemuseum #josephpulitzer
My next shows are in Harrah, OK on April 7th and in Knoxville, TN on April 21st. Have you got your tickets yet???
My next show is in Harrah, OK at the State Theater on Saturday, April 7th!!!!
I'm presently trying to book a show in Houston, a very under-serviced city when it comes to Voltaire shows. ha! I play in Dallas and Austin at least once a year each (sometimes more!) but Houston always eludes me. I try to book there every year and every year I fail. So... I'm taking matters into my own hands (like I've done with show in Tampa and Boston). So... does anyone know any promoters in Houston or venues in Houston who might be willing to host my show on Friday, April 6th? All terms are negotiable!
In the meantime, See you in Harrah, OK! Get your tickets TODAY!!!
Baphomet and Kurai Kirin taxidermy gaffs look on as the Bats and Bones chandelier evolves in the Lair of Voltaire. Also in the shot is a throne by Absolom Roche and vinyl wall decals from Vinyl Wall Adornments.

I love it when people bring stuff like this for me to sign at shows! This handsome, young fellow brought my card from the Rum and Bones miniatures game by Cool Mini or Not. It was part of one of their stretch goals in their Kickstarter campaign. It all starts out with one person having a creative idea and acting on it. In this case, they thought of me and gave me the honor of being involved. Then people as far away as Russia chose to contribute to the campaign and in doing so made the project a reality. Anyone can have an idea, even a great one. But to me this is a testament to the power of giving your creative daydreams the respect they deserve and getting them out there into the world. You just may have people from distant continents support it!!! #rumandbones #coolminiornot
