    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 legendary DC-area skilled & smooth bassist Wardell Howell, and talented djembe drummer, Kweku Owusu. Wardell is a longtime professional bassist whose playing has taken him around the world. Kweku has also toured the world playing drums, is a versatile percussionist, an excellent drum-maker and the proprietor of local drum shop, Hands on Drums

Depending on the occasion, the band also includes multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and music teacher, Ayanna Gallant; superbly talented djembe drummer, drum teacher, and leader of Bele Bele Rhythm Collective, Kristen Arantand 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!)
