Produce Section 1
Wishbone Entertainment is the production company behind Felonious: Onelovehiphop. The company was established in January of 2001 in order to produce quality music, theater, film, and arts education. Since it's creation, the company has been setting and achieving ambitious and diverse goals for itself. Music projects produced and performed by Felonious for Wishbone Entertainment include: 'The Fight for Light' EP, 'The List' LP, 'Bust a Nursery Rhyme' (for Little Big Mouth L.L.C.), and an original score for the New Pickle Circus 2001 Holiday Show. Scheduled for release in 2003 are 'The Produce Section Volume One', BEATBOX: A Raparetta EP in June and 'Felonious: onelovehiphop Straight No Paper' in September. Wishbone Entertainment is also the company who brought the critically acclaimed theater piece BEATBOX: A Raparetta to Theater Artaud in 2001. BEATBOX: A Raparetta, written by Dan Wolf (D Wolf) and Tommy Shepherd (Soulati) of Felonious, is a play in rhythm and rhyme, accompanied by beatbox (vocal drum beats) and DJ Raw B. In development since 1995, BEATBOX: A Raparetta has been performed at San Jose Repertory Theater, New Roots to Hip Hop at the Last Day Saloon, and several South Bay Juvenile Halls and Correctional Facilities. Felonious has performed BEATBOX: A Raparetta in Hamburg, Germany as part of Die Wüste Lebt, a theater festival for young actors and directors, produced by the Hamburger-Kammerspiele. Most recently Felonious performed BEATBOX: A Raparetta for sell-out audiences at The Black Box Theater in Oakland throughout September and November of 2002. The play will run again at the Black Box in May of 2003 before it goes on to the New York Hip Hop Theater Festival. Currently Wishbone Entertainment is developing Is Life a Dream?, Dan Wolf and Tommy Shepherd's adaptation of Calderon De La Barcas' Life Is a Dream. Felonious: Onelovehiphop and BEATBOX: A Raparetta will be featured in a documentary film by Jens Huckeriede The Return of the Tudelband. The film follows Dan Wolf as he returns to Hamburg, Germany to unearth his Jewish and theatrical roots. Look for the film in 2003 at festivals world wide. Community outreach is very important to Wishbone Entertainment and it's members have taught theater and music to youth in almost every established outreach program in the bay area. In 2000 and 2001 Wishbone Entertainment directed an eight month high school arts pilot program called P.A.R.T.Y. (Performing Arts Reaching to Youth). Watch for this production team in the coming years as they uplift the bay area and global community with their one love mentality. Uniting different cultures through hip hop to create positive change for everyone is one of the goals of Wishbone Entertainment.
