In addition to a bunch of kindie shows this fall, both solo and with the Positrons, I am thrilled to be playing a show with music for grownups on Wednesday, September 6th at 7:30pm at Friendship Heights Village (4433 South Park Avenue, Chevy Chase, MD)! 

Rock Creek plays a mix of folk, rock, & jazz crossovers, plus pop hits from yesterday and today.  Rock Creek features my fabulous and multi-talented friends Ayanna Gallant and Ford Combs, and I'll be mostly singing. Hope to see you at our inaugural performance!

Fun Times in Frederick

It was a blast being a part of the Frederick Summerfest Family Theatre series this year! Marsha and the Positrons hit the stage in July with Wardell Howell on bass and Max Bent beatboxing.  It was a super-hot day, but thanks to the sponsors, Celebrate Frederick and radio station Key103, the audience was given free water and free Rita's Italian Ices!

It was so much fun to play at the Port Discovery Children's Museum in Baltimore with Max Bent on Labor Day! Am looking forward to playing at the museum in November, and then in February and May 2016!  Details over on my Upcoming Performances page.

I'm pleased to be partnering with the National Museum of Health and Medicine to present a program about helmet safety on Tuesday evening, August 25th! It promises to be fun & educational, and from the looks of things, you might get to try on a brain patterned bike helmet!

Family Fiesta Time!

Join us at the Family Fiesta! Kweku Owusu joins me on drums.  Start your weekend off right with singing & dancing in the lovely El Tamarindo restaurant.  Work up an appetite and stick around for lunch if you're in the mood for delicious Mexican or Salvadoran food, too.

Hooray for Collaborations!

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.

Takoma Park Plays!

I had a blast performing at Takoma Park Play Day at Takoma Park Middle School on September 27, 2014!  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).

Playing with Here Comes Trouble

On  Saturday May 10th I played a show at FNDTN in Kensington, MD with 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.
