Joey Chang aka CelloJoe is an anomaly in the world of cellists.
Cello + beatboxing + vocals + live looping = Cello Joe
Cello Joe plays the cello while beatboxing, looping, and singing. It’s Classical Hip Hop. He creates fat beats with a cello and his mouth and he does it live! His lyrics weave together sustainability, environmental justice, and social awareness. They entertain, inspire, and make you wonder.
By beatboxing, throatsinging, singing, plucking and bowing the cello, CelloJoe can mimic many styles of music from dubstep to folk to rock to classical to hip hop.
CelloJoe is the world’s first long distance musical bike touring cellist. He has ridden his bike over 10,000 miles in the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe and Australia.
Cello Joe & Toni Tone have have been coming to the Oregon Country Fair since 2001. Cello Joe first came to the Fair on the suggestion of some friends in Portland. He came, he busked, he was amazed. After 8 years of applying every year, Cello Joe made it onto the Ambiance Crew in 2009. In subsequent years, he performed at The Monkey Palace, The Morningwood Odditorium, The Ritz Sauna Stage, The Blue Moon, Shady Grove, the Spirit Tower, and at every food booth that has a stage. He’s sat in with Tarkka, Obo Martin, and so many great artists and friends. Cello Joe is known for his quirky, funny songs as well as songs that have a message of social responsibility, respect for the earth, and sustainability. He plays the cello while beatboxing, singing and looping. Toni Tone and Giant Puppets Save the World have had a giant puppet installation in Xavanadu just about every year since The New Area arrived. Her giant butterflies, giant phoenix birds, giant caterpillar, giant dog, and many other giant puppets have brought wonder and delight to young and old and provided an interactive experience for all.
