's live show is a careful mix of kooky original songs, crazy comedy and familiar sing along tunes performed only like Mr. Langham can. He plays a mean Ukulele, a wicked Guitar, sings with reckless abandon, is a masterful throat trompetist, and is quite the whistler. He can also skip rocks. For many years he played under the name of Gilligan Stump! but underwent a name change after a vision he had while lost in the desert. His roots in the music business were sprouted in West Texas, fertilized in Austin, Tx. and his tree has grown like a weed rocking stages across the nation ever since. He is now based in New York City where he lives on a sailboat with his lovely wife. See what the press has had to say below.
