GUNMETAL BLUES

Book by Scott Wentworth
Music and Lyrics by Craig Bohmler and Marion Adler

GUNMETAL BLUES is a hard-boiled detective yarn disguised as a lounge act. Or maybe it’s the other way around. Live from the Red Eye Lounge, piano player and tour guide, Buddy Toupee, leads us on a voyage of mystery, murder, music, and good old-fashioned film noir banter as down on-his-luck gumshoe Sam Galahad searches for a missing blonde in a world of smoke and mirrors, shadows and shattered dreams. Will Sam break the murder case before the crooked cops and the bad guys break him? Will he find the love he thought he lost? Only Buddy Toupee knows.
