Drawing inspiration from New Orleans style marching bands, hip-hop, circus clowning and manipulation arts, Blunderbuss Jones creates immersive and entertaining interactions, seemingly out of thin air and wherever he rolls. It might be a unicycle ride-by and wave, a personalised performance in passing, or an epic solo stage show with his original and fun dance music; the experience will leave you with a lasting impression.
