Mr Velaquez leads a number of troupes in Northern Indiana and the Chicago area, namely Salsation , Makeshift Up , The Tony Stanza’s , Inpronol , Los Improviachi’s and runs his own podcast The Musical Chairs Podcast , To say that Mr Velaquez is busy is an understatement.
We start episode 2 with the history between Nelson and Tim, starting off in 2009 with the Vet Art Project where Nelson was mistaken for someone else.
We move onto the infamous “White Obama” incident with Salsation and Salsa Sketch in 2009 and how being wooden, even pertified onstage can be a blessing in disguise.
Delving further into the current happenings with Nelson, he discusses a new project with Salsation that will be auditioning for actors in October/Nov time frame full length show in March/April 2018, very political show. Los Improviachi’s new shows in October and impeachment party trials are on special. Order your Impraviachi gram today.
Nelson talks about why being a guitar player is not what you would expect and the type of women that he catches, you probably want to cover the kids ears for this portion, but then again you may fit into his demographic.
Before we hit the Satanic Seven Questions we discover a new book/manifesto that Nelson is writing, 6 pages a year about Improv, stay tuned eventually he will get this bad boy published.
Big take away is artists gatekeepers, STOP Being a Dick.
Tada the Seven Satanic Questions and Nelson scores a 5 out of 7, as the first guest he does admirably.
