Come and see the one and only HOBO LOVE TOUR and get ready to  be amazed by Waltzing Matilda the One Beer Prophet (formerly known as J. Wilber and Reverend Jess Duggan) and Cindy Emch (aka Emchy) of Vagabondage and Rhubarb Whiskey as they embark on the Hobo Love Tour!

That's right, folks – these two talented tattooed ladies are following the harvest moon during the month of September, starting out in Beer City and then following the curve of the big river down to St. Louis and New Orleans.   Then, they'll be cutting back east to descend upon Louisville, Kentucky and, of course, the City of Big Shoulders.  They'll be spilling drinks and breaking hearts through the rust belt and the south.  Whatever you do, don't miss this daring duo!  It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you'll never forget!

Jess Wilber Bio

Waltzing Matilda hails from deep in the heart of the Rust Belt, a melancholy yet ruckus-raising clowngirl if ever there was one!  See! her do pseudo-stripteases to the sounds of Dixieland jazz!  Hear! her squeeze and strum her twisted take on Americana!  Listen! to her cut up jackpots, yarns spun about her traveling adventures!  Watch! as she makes you laugh and cry with her silly hobo-clown antics!

Hear her amaze you and see her wares on the lovely websites http://sadandbeautifulworld.net and http://www.myspace.com/onebeerprophet.


Cindy Emch aka Emchy Bio

Emchy comes from the lonesome, fog-drenched port of San Francisco, an accordion-playing beauty beyond compare!  Hear her play songs of hard-drinkin' and hell-raisin' on her accordion!  Listen to her share with you poetry that'll set fire to your soul!  Watch her closely, for she has surprises in store!

She is also the nefarious accordion component in the bands Vagabondage and Rhubarb Whiskey. Her adventures with Vagabondage are legendary including performances at the Hubba Hubba Revue (2008 Best of the Bay Variety Show), and other sordid venues in California.  You can hear her songs on the myspace pages of
Vagabondage & Rhubarb Whiskey.
