Jeff DeMark has been performing in Humboldt County for over 30 years. He has written five theatrical storytelling shows, including  “Went to Lunch, Never Returned”, “Hard as a Diamond, Soft as the Dirt” and “Writing My Way Out of Adolescence.” Three of the shows  debuted at Dell’Arte’s Mad River Festival to sold out houses and acclaim.  DeMark toured widely with the shows from San Francisco to Minneapolis to New York City. The past few years DeMark has concentrated on songwriting and shorter stories, plus live music with narratives. The December 12 benefit will feature a variety of songs written in the past year.
