Over the many years of operation under Riopelle's watch, Masquerade had grown into a popular entertainment facility that saw such diverse performers as Merle Haggard, the Zombies, the A3C Hip-Hop Festival, and countless other diverse punk, hard rock, hip-Hop, and alt. country acts, covering most of the popular music spectrum.
Riopelle often performed as "13," the frontman for the notorious Impotent Sea Snakes, a consortium of odd characters whose music was laced with profanity, dark humor, accompanied with outrageous costumes and stunts. The Snakes were a regular feature at Masquerade for many years, but their live performances had slowed down significantly over the past few years.
In his Milton community, Riopelle was also well known as a controversial figure, often called the "Monkey Man." He raised monkeys and many other non-native wild animals on his property, and recently got a permit to turn it into a zoo of some sort, which was hotly contested by many neighbors.
Details regarding memorial service will be posted here as soon as they become available.
