“A rare character.” – The Onion.
George Peele has been a fixture in the Mile High Denver club scene for 15 years. As a musician, he has hit elevated notes on Red Rocks' upper terrace with now-defunct “Best Club DJs” Friends in Stereo for Global Dance Festival. As a stilt performer, he has cavorted onstage with Top 40 pop stars including LMFAO and Will.i.am at world-renowned EDM events like Ultra and Electric Daisy Carnival (he even had a cameo in feature length documentary The EDC Experience). As a singing telegram, he has introduced Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper and ambushed 9 News Denver Executive Producer Jack Maher—in a diaper and wings—on live TV. As a music journalist, he has interviewed artists from Bassnectar to Henry Rollins.
Peele has never been one to shy away from larger-than-life character roles. He has impersonated Zombie Michael Jackson, Alice in Wonderland's White Rabbit, Pumpkin King Jack Skellington and Gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson. He performed an uncanny homage to Johnny Cash for years. He even brings a unicorn to life via quad stilts and a silver saddle. Peele is currently growing his boutique entertainment agency Citric Acid Arts and putting the finishing touches on his new insect-themed love song "Butterflies" with Nigerian producer Daniel Iyere.
"Your voice is ill. Love the beats and bass."
"This guy is awesome! He came to my salon for my birthday and sang me "Hairdresser on Fire" by Morrissey...dressed as a gorilla:) It was totally memorable and the reactions from the people there were priceless.
He also custom writes songs to fit the person and occasion. What a totally unique service :)"
"The impresario of this singing telegram service is none other than Orange Peel Moses, a true local original & talent. The 'custom' referenced in the name of his business is truth in advertising, as he tailors every 'special delivery' to the lucky recipient. If you want to make any special occasion that much more special, call this guy and see how he makes it a unique & memorable experience".
"Song is awesome!"
"Thank you so much for your awesome song for our baby blessing."
Stilt walkers are excellent for entertaining large groups because their heads and antics will be visible to many simultaneously. Children are also often wowed by stilters, due to their immense difference in height. Citric Acid Entertainment founder George Peele has been strapping on height enhancements for nearly eleven years now, and does so much more than simply stand around on sticks. Dancing, singing, hula hooping, playing guitar, juggling and making orange peel sculptures are just a few of the tricks in Peele's elevated repertoire. Scour the Stilt Life gallery for past costumes and future possibilities.
George Peele aka Orange peel moses covered Colorado music and entertainment for over a decade, beginning with a bi-weekly electronica column for long-defunct Go-Go Magazine and culminating in a role as Music Editor for Denver fashion magazine 303 and freelancer for Vegas Seven.
