The Crestone Eagle, January 2003:

Gimme Fever! Cabin Fever rides again Jan. 25
by Jim Barnes

On January 25 in the Moffat Gym Auditorium, beginning at 7pm, (sharp!) the residents of the San Luis Valley will once more be entertained with laughter, drama, music and dance in the annual Cabin Fever Revue. This year acts will include Terry Ulrich’s new band which, at this writing, is still forming and morphing. We will also be treated to music by Gary Roth, accompanying himself on guitar as well as other musical acts, including Rachel Amor with dancers, Roni Chernin, administrative assistant of the Crestone Charter School, and Glen Irvin, Spanish teacher and basketball coach at Moffat School.

New to this year’s show are The Goat Tree Drummers, a local drumming troupe who have been drumming in a Saguache circle for the joy of it and learning from visiting African drummers. Moffat High School Drama class will perform their hallmark original skit. This year they will treat the audience to a truer version of the Harry Potter myth. And my good friend and fellow performer, the poet laureate of Shyt ‘n upon Avon, the famed Shameus Hoboken will perform original poetry and ancient songs from his native land.

Despite the fact that organizer Kizzen Laki has passed the unquenchable torch to me, the show will still rely on the technical backup so artfully provided by experts such as Kailash, Dennis Neuhaus, Talmath Mesenbrink, and others behind the scenes and in the flies. But most importantly, we will enjoy the incomparable, unstoppable social critic and sly humorist—emcee extraordinaire—Mark Joke-Master Jacobi.

To help defray growing costs of the Cabin Fever, which some say may soon eclipse the Crestone Music Festival, the admission charge is $4. That’s still an unbeatable bargain for a night of wild and raucous entertainment. So grab your friends and your woolies and meet everybody who’s anybody at the Cabin Fever Revue—the show that makes all musical, political and spiritual persuasions equal.

So come out and enjoy “The Greatest Show on Earth” (or at least in our neighborhood!) For info call 256-4275.
