Has been seen busking, singing and dancing (practices musical
bricolage) on the streets of America,
including Berkeley, San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, Venice

San Antonio, Austin, New Orleans, Albuquerque, Boulder, Denver, Minneapolis,

Known to have acted in a Christmas Carol production, playing both Marley's
Ghost and a homeless worker (go figure...), and Shakespeare's "Scottish"
Play...as a messenger to Lady MacDuff. Loves Puns...Anagrams, and Spoonerisms. If
seen, please feel free to say, "Hello, How-ya-doon?" Better yet, ask,
"Can we sing a jubilee song?"
If you ask him, "Where do you Live?" He may well answer, "Home is where
the heart is...the 2 houses I grew up in were sold to someone else." If you
then ask, "Well, now...Where's your heart?" He might just reply, "On the
wings of those snow white DOVES those upstretched hands on that Habitat for
Humanity poster on my guitar case have just released."
Calls himself Jesse Slokum, will answer to: Hey! You!! Nobody Special, Honeybee,
