A Very, Very Musical Weekend!

This may have been my most musical weekend to-date. It certainly was my most musical weekend as a kindie artist!

Over the past weekend, I performed at a Mommy & Me fitness group Halloween party, a 5th birthday party and a new friend’s CD release party.

For starters, I entertained several cute little Halloween revelers and their grown-ups thanks to a connection I made with Fatima at Fit4Mom Stroller Strides (Westfield/Warren, NJ).

After a break in the action (which was happily spent attending my 2-year-old cowgirl’s friend’s 3rd birthday party, complete with pony rides and a mobile petting zoo!) it was off to Rutherford, NJ for a 5th birthday party arranged by a new friend of mine, concert promoter John Grande at New Memory Productions. This time I put on my wireless headset-mic and added plenty of movement to my songs (3 sets of original, cover and traditional songs). The birthday boy loved strumming my guitar in his Avengers/Iron Man costume! Since a young partygoer asked me to sing a superhero song, I made one up right on the spot – look for it in the near future once we refine the lyrics!

Sunday meant one more stop – this one with the full band, in support of Baze and His Silly Friends’ CD Release Party! What a blast that show was! Of all the shows we’ve played since we started this kindie band this past March, this was the first one we played in a rock club, and – Wow! – when you have a great sound technician like Mark at the Crossroads in Garwood, NJ operating a great sound system, what a jolt of energy it gave every member of every band on stage. Add in a genuine kindie superstar like Suzi Shelton and a TV voiceover star (literally – she plays the voice of Star on Sprout’s Good Night Show!) – that’s Stacia Newcomb – it was an atmosphere where kids and their grown-ups couldn’t help but have an amazing time!
