An Evening with Deven Green

An Evening with Deven Green 7

Last Saturday evening, the Mark Twain House & Museum in Hartford played host to the one and only Deven Green. For those of you not familiar with Ms. Green’s work, consider moving out from underneath the rock where you presently reside. You could say she’s a singer, a comedienne and a ukulele maestro but that doesn’t really tell the tale.

Deven’s performances, much like the woman herself, are a force of nature. She grabbed the audience by the collective, metaphorical balls and didn’t let go until multiple encores were finished, every poster was signed and every future Facebook profile picture was taken. The audience was taken on a ride all the way from Etta James to No Diggity​​, with stops along the way at Lana Del Rey and Kermit the Frog, all while spending copious amounts of time in the 1980’s.

At one point, Deven brought up a ukulele master, Dr. Uke, for a fast-paced ukulele duet cover of It’s the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine) by REM. I would argue that was the first time that had ever occurred. Smiles, laughter and sing-alongs made frequent appearances throughout the evening but it was Deven’s stunning rendition of Crying by Roy Orbison, based on the A cappella version from the movie Mulholland Falls that could have brought a tear to the eye of the most hardened of hearts.

I’d tell you that you if you have the opportunity to see Deven Green perform, you simply have to go but I wouldn’t be telling you anything you don’t already know. Sadly for you, if you weren’t there in Hartford, you missed an amazing show but fortunately, thanks to Ms. Green’s generosity, you can take home a piece of the show! She personally autographed a copy of the event poster for one of our lucky readers so keep your eyes peeled this week for a chance to take home a little bit of Deven!

    I have seen Ms. Green many-a time performing in LA and she is as warm and kind as she is HILARIOUS and CRAZY-talented… which really says it all.

    Someone get her a record deal, followed by her own show!!!!
