    Marsha and the Positrons


Marsha and the Positrons are a kindie   band led by singer/songwriter Marsha Goodman-Wood - music and drama teacher, former neuroscientist, and mom. The band features the talented djembe drummer, drum teacher, and leader of Bele Bele Rhythm CollectiveKristen Arantmulti-instrumentalist, vocalist and music teacher, Ayanna Gallant; legendary DC-area skilled & smooth bassist Wardell Howell. 


Depending on the occasion, the band may include djembe drummer, drum-maker and the proprietor of local drum shop, Hands on Drums, Kweku Owusuand from time to time,  talented Baltimore-based beatboxer and Young Audiences of Maryland roster artist, Max Bent.



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!)
