Our concerts are always family-friendly events that are fun, playful, and educational — and entertaining for adults as well as kids! We mix our original tunes with kid-appropriate popular songs and traditional favorites designed to energize and engage the audience. Marsha’s debut solo album, Gravity Vacation, has catchy original songs about science & how the world works. It has garnered critical praise and several songwriting award nominations. Marsha uses her music teacher’s sensibility for what works to move kids of all ages, and brings fun and science together!

Marsha and the Positrons love to get the audience singing and dancing along!  We love songs for kids with fine taste in music about dancing penguins, non-conformist sheep, helpful ninjas, and the moons of Jupiter. (Psst...watch out kids, or you might learn something while you boogie!)
