I’ve been two things my entire life: an entertainer and a nerd. I’ve been hosting game shows in one form or another since I was five years old, beginning with “Family Feud” games on the chalkboard in preschool. When I attended my first anime convention in 1998 and sat in on a trivia show put on by a well-meaning but not particularly audience-friendly group, I decided I’d give it a go. “Anime Match Game” would debut the next year at the same convention.
Eighteen years later, I’m still doing it.
At last count I’ve hosted game shows at events in 28 states, along with France and Canada, entertaining as many audiences as possible, doing what I do best. I’ve still got a ways to go to catch famed anime voice actor and convention veteran Tiffany Grant, whose goal is to do a convention in every state, but I’m working on it.
Joel Beaver's high energy brand of retro-rock has branches in Rockabilly, Glam Rock, Power Pop, and a bit of Blues and Country music. He is an up and coming singer-songwriter and multi-talented instrumentalist. From pounding his piano like Jerry Lee, to performing his own material, Joel Beaver never leaves a crowd disappointed.
Born to a rock and roll family, the son of Rockabilly Hall of Famer Stan Beaver, Joel quickly came up in the ranks of the southeast Tennessee music scene. Joel was also a member of several well known regional bands such as Ballroom Dancing, and The Radiomen. He has also shared the stage with Max Gail(Wojo from Barney Miller), Ray Peterson, Jeff Cook(of Alabama), as well as Chattanooga legends Jimmy Tawater, Charlie Chambers, and Dalton Roberts.
The Imagination Experience
Can you Imagine a fun-filled evening participatory performance that explores Imagination, one of the most basic linking elements we share as human beings? Can you Imagine this being an evening filled with laughs and wonder? Can you Imagine the sense of joy you experience in a world of make-believe? Go ahead, take a second, stop reading, give it a go and really Imagine it... Of course you can, you’re having an experience of Imagining this right now! It’s easy, and you’re doing great!
The best part is that whatever you just came up with, is absolutely right, and perfect in every way because it’s all about your willingness to Imagine. That’s all it takes to make this happen! So, if you can Imagine, we need you at The Imagination Experience and we promise you’re in for a night of laughter and entertainment.
You can probably remember playing make-believe for hours as a child. All the vivid worlds you created, the characters, and the experiences you had in your Imagination. Those are great memories right!?! Everything was so real, so free and so fun. It was easy to do, you just Imagined it and it was there. All of it, building and expanding in real-time, and best of all, you lived it. You really lived it.
As we get older, outside forces try to compel us into the mistaken impression that “it’s just our Imagination.” Asking, if not demanding that we ignore the gut impression that there is something more to our Imagination, something good, something real. Implying instead that we stop trusting ourselves and give up Imagination as something other than real or that we accept Imagination should be seen as somehow less than “reality.”
But tonight, we’re going to say, “no thank you,” to limiting beliefs and skeptical mindsets, and choose instead to make a visceral exploration of Imagination, to re-open that door to child-like wonder. We’re going to accept Imagination as reality, and we’re going to have a great time doing it! You can even start by practicing this right now, go ahead and say, “YES to Imagination!” Really! Go ahead and say it. Whether you choose to do it out-loud or silently to yourself, it’s entirely your choice. It doesn’t matter, just do it!
Be bold and reclaim the power of your own Imagination! Just Imagine what it would be like to experience Imagination as reality again. Imagine the child-like wonder, the possibilities, and the fun. Feel it, experience it, let it in. Imagine what it would be like to do that and just act as if it were so. Even if you have difficulty with that, just pretend it worked, and then just pretend that you aren’t pretending anymore. And most of all, bring your Imagination and come to OUR show, where your Imagination is the star!
***This event is very special and is ONLY for those who wish to immerse themselves, explore the boundaries of reality and possibility, and invite Imagination into their lives for this fun filled evening of laughs and wonder. The Imagination Experience is as unique as the group that takes part, no two shows are the same. Come MAKE the magic happen and invite Imagination into your life!***
The Imagination Experience will be presented by Reality Imagineer Travis Wichman, however, just what The Imagination Experience is, is up to YOU. This must-experience event is so different that even Travis doesn’t know exactly what is going to happen. That’s because YOUR Imagination is the star!
