The Spiel

The Museum of Oddities from Gainesville, Florida consists of John Young on vocals and Bruce Johnson on guitar.  Friends for twenty years or so, we travel the back roads (2-3 of them anyway) to bring our own take on a wide variety of music.

With over ten hours of music from which to choose, MoO setlists can be tailored to the needs of a specific venue or event. Currently/Previously booked gigs include Satchel's/Lightnin' Salvage, The One Love Cafe, The Away from the World Cafe (Cedar Key), First Magnitude Brewery, The Crafty Bastards, The World of Beer, The Brass Tap, The Whiskey House, Marineland of Florida, Beef O'Brady's, Tasty Buddha, Napolatano's, The Library at Market Street, North Florida Pioneer Days Festival, the High Springs Music in the Park series as well as various private and charity functions.

At a MoO show, expect some traditional acoustic fare such as James Taylor or Cat Stevens, semi-contemporary tunes by Dave Matthews or Darius Rucker, some classic rock like The Allman Brothers or Little Feat, and even the unexpected (MileDavis, Darrell Scott, Etta James, Rodgers and Hammerstein)...all mixed together with a hint of west coast psychedelia.  Click on the various setlist links for a full list of songs.
