California Gwen a Tribute to Katie Perry and No Doubt

Pam and I decided to take Sprout out to a hot concert at Waterford Lakes Town Center (413 N Alafaya Trail, Orlando, FL 32828) The stage was in front of Wahlburgers in the shopping center parking lot. Monica Leamy is the lead singer of Subliminal Doubt, a full band tribute to No Doubt and Gwen Stefani. Also featuring our alternate persona,  Katy Parody and the Teenage Dreams: A Tribute to Katy Perry.

Storm clouds were looming on the western horizon but the rain held off as the Subliminal Doubt gave an energetic performance. Monica even recruited some back up dancers to give a stadium worthy performance. Attendance was unfortunately spotty. A bounce house was set up in the far corner of the parking lot and a little girl stood directly in front of the stage dancing and clapping.

Actually since this sketch was done Monica and her lead guitarist Jonathan Leamy got married. AS they say, the family that plays together stays together. I have bumped into this tribute band multiple times, even when I least expect it, as I search out sketch opportunities. They are a fixture of the Orlando scene. Sprout never stopped wagging his tail. That is a great review coming from an excited old pup.

This band will be performing Smelly Cat: The All That 90’s Show at Boxi Lake in Lake Nona on September 21, 2019. The show is from 7-10pm. Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat, what are they feeding you?
The members of Subliminal Doubt are STOKED to bring you an all-new show featuring A variety of hits from the years 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998 and even... 1999! Expect a fun time.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
