Fred Ho’s Memorial at BAM Cafe Oct 3.

I went to Fred Ho’s memorial celebration at the BAM Cafe last night. Fred was one of the first innovators of cultural fusion in the arts. He mixed Asian instruments with American jazz to tell new stories of America from a non Eurocentric perspective. It was bold and rockin. It was fresh. It was sexy. Fred will continue to be one of my main inspirations. Below is a cast shot of Deadly She-Wolf Assassin at Armaggedon at La Mama April 2013.  It was one of funnest shows I’ve had the pleasure of performing in in over twenty years of doing theater in New York City. Knowing Fred, I sure he’s wreaking havoc in the after life.    fredhoshewolf2
