About This Show

“Wayne Harris skillfully interweaves deft character sketches…gripping!” -SF Chronicle

“Harris takes his audience on a joyful ride” – SF Bay Guardian

“Just the sight of them big butt girls in short skirts doing the “dirty dog” down Newstead Blvd. put the crowd into a frenzy…I mean, folks were following the band down the street. Ain’t seen nothing like it before or since.”

There’s a parade coming! …so, get a seat on the curb with a snow cone and watch as Wayne Harris portrays 1 Baptist  preacher, 3 generations on a porch, a 4 man  bass drum ensemble, 12 rather large “letter” girls bumping and grinding down a mid-town boulevard and the 100 member Pleasant Green Missionary Baptist Church Drum & Bugle Corps. Award winning performer and San Francisco Bay Area favorite, Wayne Harris, takes us on a road less traveled…(or maybe less marched) as he prepares at 8 years old, for his first parade maneuvering between a jealous big brother, a drunken deacon, a foul mouthed banner partner, new shoes and a grandmother of biblical proportions…. all while learning the value of family, history and the importance of staying in step!
