I met Kweku Owusu after my show with Max Bent at the Takoma Park Earthday in April. He had a booth across the way where he was selling products from his native Ghana, including beautiful handmade djembe drums. He was inspired to grab one of his djembe and spontaneously join in near the end of our set and it was awesome!!
So, it was a treat to have Kweku join me and play drums for my recent Boogie Babes show at Atlas Performing Arts Center on May 22, 2015! The audience loved it and was dancing up a storm! I look forward to playing more shows with Kwe in the future, and hope to have Max and Kwe together with me on the stage soon. Stay tuned for that and check out Upcoming Performances to see who will join me when! In the meantime, check out Kweku's page and amazing project Drumming Up From Poverty.
It was so much fun to be part of all the Takoma Plays action!
An incredible array of activities that ranged from giant chess to climbing aboard a fire truck to making mud pies to getting creative with empty boxes in the "Just Boxes" area was a sight to behold! There were also board games, tennis & yoga activities, and of course music! And I got to hang out with the orchestrator of it all, Pat Rumbaugh (and wearing a clown nose, of course).
Here Comes Trouble. It was so much fun to play with a six-piece band and to sing with them on their songs, too! Here Comes Trouble is led by Kelly Donohue and Jon Babu and features Cindy Huang and Jennifer Jones on vocals, Colleen on guitar, and Jacob (hidden from view) on bass. You can check out their music on their website & look out for their first record in the near future.

Here's a photo from a show at Union Market for the Boogie Babes in May.
There will be lots of opportunities to come out to sing & dance with me this fall! Many free events, as well as low-cost ticketed shows to make it easy and affordable to take in some fun kindie rock with your little ones.
