Blunderbuss Jones is a musician, circus performer and engineer, combining skills to create a totally unique roving or stage experience unlike anything you’ve ever seen. His flaming trumpet invention is next level, first.
Taking inspiration from New Orleans style marching bands, circus clowning and manipulation arts, and bush doof costume sensibilities, Blunderbuss J creates immersive and entertaining interactions with festival-goers, seemingly out of thin air and wherever he rolls. It might be a little unicycle ride-by beep and wave, a brief personalised performance in passing or a more elaborate roving performance with his wheelie bin soundsystem or his electric art car; the experience will leave you with a lasting “whoa” impression.
He has performed solo or with the Blunderbuss band at many festivals and events including Burning Man (USA), Burning Seed (Aus), Rainbow Serpent, Dragon Dreaming, Psyfari, Tanglewood, Coco Poco Loco, Pirainia Space Burn, 24 Moons nightclub, Beltane, EarthArtBeat, Queen Victoria Night Markets, Winter Solstice (CERES), Earthcore, and more.
The Flaming Blunderbuss is a propane flame effect trumpet.
