Audio Eye Candy
With backgrounds in Film and Theatre the four great minds of Milton Roe have spent the last two years struggling to become the next great American authors. Since no one was writing any great books, the four men; Jon Ong, Ben Petry, Dave Kempher, and Adam Ty Miller, sought fame and fortune elsewhere. That elsewhere was sketch comedy and, thanks to a generous campground in late 2003, they were able to start to perform that sketch comedy. In mid 2004, during a run of "The Sound of Music", Jon Ong ran into Adam Ty Miller and Dave Kempher. The three chorus boys hit things off splendidly and, when Jon discussed his desire to start a sketch comedy group, he had no problem signing up both Adam and Dave. In August of 2004 Milton Roe had it's first paid show and since then have done numerous live performances at Eby's Pines, Bristol; KOA, Bristol; Manapago, Orland; New World Arts Center, Goshen; and the Middlebury Summer Festival. They've been the opening act for other Sketch Comedy groups in the area and have taken those groups to open shows for them as well. This CD is the first season the boys wrote as a group and has many of their favorite characters in it. Mostly written by Ben Petry and Dave Kempher this CD has the flavor of all the boys involved and each character was brought to life by the actor portraying it. They feel deeply that this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship and hope you can share that beginning with them by purchasing the CD and becoming one of their family!
