The Klown Boenobo currently produces, co-produces, co-produced, founded, and/or co-founded:
- The Klown
This painted renaissance ape bounced out of the sludge in 2001/2002, partly as a result of his band Gooferman’s early evolutions. He’s produced events, DJ’d, performed and walked around the house in that altered state with gusto ever since.
- Trapeze Worldwide
The internationally acclaimed bass music / electroswing / swing-hop / glitch / breaks dance party and burlesque showcase, now in its 8th year.
The all-klown electro-funk band, now in its 19th year.
- The Klowns
The Bay Area-and-beyond collective inclusive of The Kops, now in its 17th year.
- Red Nose District
The 100-250-person seminal circus camp and destination of choice at Burning Man.
- Circus Metropolus
The special-ops, SF-based performance and event production collective, co-producer of Bohemian Carnival, LoveFest VIP, and Crazy Maze, among others, and sister biz of The National Revue.
The Klown founded this musical micro-circus of a band in 2015 as pithier extension of his DJ adventures — electronics with horns, percussion, mouths, and a bombastic stage show.
- Bohemian Carnival
The critically acclaimed ‘indie circus and music orgy’ showcase variety show and dance party — a monthly for the first 6 years, now occasional, still ticking 14 years and counting.
The Klown’s worked in performer, crew member, music director, and special-ops marketing capacities for Vau de Vire Society since 2006.
He’s operated in associate-producer and/or business-partner capacities with or for New Bohemia NYE, Lagunitas Brewing Company, Vau de Vire Society, Edwardian Ball®, Burning Man, Symbiosis Gathering, Sand By The Ton, and others.
He’s performed at Electric Daisy Carnival, Bumbershoot, New Orleans Jazz Festival, Lightning In A Bottle, Symbiosis Gathering, Hardly Strictly Blue Grass, Burning Man, Lagunitas Beer Circus, Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend, Drai’s in Las Vegas, Vegoose, Download Festival, LoveFest, 911 Magazine’s Super Village Superbowl Party, Edwardian Ball, Exotic Erotic Ball, New Bohemia NYE, Sea of Dreams, How Weird Street Fair, Masquerotica, The Soiled Dove, The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence’s Easter Party, SF Pride Parade, Northwest Vaudeville Festival, and Deschutes Brewery’s CycloCross Crusade, as well as myriad music and dance venues across the country.
The Klown is managed and booked by Circus Metropolus, and sponsored in part by Lagunitas Brewing Company.
