Truth or Dare Productions

Truth or Dare is the result of countless hours of co-creative effort from its founders and co-producers, Cybil Unrest and Nick Fedoroff. The production duo creates memorable events with an emphasis on burlesque, body positivity, consent culture, safe spaces for entertainers and audiences, and maximum entertainment! You can see their monthly burlesque series at the Nevada Theatre in Nevada City as well as pop-up events at venues in cities over California.

Cybil Unrest has been gracing the stage for over a decade with her always clever, sometimes comedic, burlesque performances. A crowd favorite, Cybil is also Ultimate Reveal 2018’s crown winner. Seeing the need for more burlesque in the world, Cybil not only decided to produce shows under Truth or Dare Productions, but also founded Cybil Unrest’s School of Undress to send a whole new crop of fresh faced tassel twirling burlesque artists to the stage.

Nick Fedoroff comes from the world of magicians. From coast to coast and country to country, Nick has been dazzling audiences with his elegant, witty, and always funny stage performances for nearly two decades. Working mostly with corporations, such as Samsung, Google, Apple, Salesforce, and more, Nick has made a career of making what would be otherwise very boring and stuffy business into engaging and energizing events.
With the production expertise and performance experience needed to make Truth or Dare Productions come to life, Nick and Cybil teamed up in 2013 to make their burlesque dreams come true. Truth or Dare Productions has since moved on to producing other events from Rocky Horror Picture Show with a full shadow cast to late-night dance parties that rage until sunrise, from fully online Covid-Lockdown Live(ish) Streams to fundraisers for natural disasters.

 

 

Sailor Beast

Sailor Beast is a multi genre music producer with an emphasis on tribal and experimental music.  In 2018 she released her first  tracks, leading not only the music production, but also the creative direction for her music videos.

Moreover, Sailor is at the charge for giving voice to women in the music industry. Prominently in the realms of DJ’ing and music production.  Consequently, you can find Sailor playing at festivals in the US and abroad, local club nights, and renegades, enveloping dancers with her warrior energy and deep tribal rooted sonic vibe.

Beta Series: C.J. Boyd

BUY TICKETS

Miners Foundry is pleased to present an intimate evening of acoustic/experimental/non-mainstream music featuring C.J. Boyd, and supported by Stephanie Siehr and The Stratospheres, and The Unfortunate Bastard on July 6, 2019 at 8:00pm.

 

Bassist turned vagabond C.J. Boyd uses bass loops and voices in order to try and stop time. On perpetual tour since March 2008, movement and stasis are both at the center of his music. Weaving together improvisation with a sparse, minimalist aesthetic, Boyd creates waves of sound, worlds of provocative unlived memories through a singular approach to the upright bass and electric bass guitar that makes everything near and far. For more about CJ, visit www.cjboyd.com

 

The Unfortunate Bastard are Dave Dalton of Screaming Bloody Marys and Die Laughing Records, and Brian Tierney of The Gargoyles. They liken their sound to a “busker,punk,pub-rock electric… Violent Femmes on on the street corner with Billy Bragg…for more info, visit them on Reverb Nation.

 

 

 

Stephanie Siehr is a musician schooled by old song books, errant radio signals, wandering minstrels, and trees. She grew up in  the Midwest, playing piano and organ, alto and baritone saxophones. Guitars, singing, and rock ‘n’ roll came later, in California. Her sound is a mix of pared-down twang and proto-punk, Lucinda Williams meets the Modern Lovers.  Stephanie has also performed in the duo Better Odds (with drummer Carl Helm), with the Bob Woods Trio, Curse of Cretins, The Climate Music Project, and others. Contact: [email protected]

Depending on which way the wind is blowing, “The Stratospheres” may include a number of friends. This performance will be enhanced by Liz Stuart (Vocolot).

Like many of his own musical heroes (Stevie Wonder chief among them), Allen Stone pulls off the near-magical feat of channeling a weight-of-the-world sensitivity into his songs while still radiating hope and promise.  Stone’s breezily poetic lyrics touch on topics ranging from rampant materialism to the toxic takeover of technology in art.  Allen Stone’s newest release Radius features a lush yet raw sonic landscape staying true to his pledge to rely entirely on live instrumentation.

Jon Pareles, chief popular music critic for the New York Times praised Stone for possessing “a tenor voice with the eagerness and frisky syncopation of [Stevie] Wonder.”
