We’ve had a fantastic time playing some of our favorite summer concert series like Everett’s Children’s Concert Series at Silverlake, Bonney Lake’s Kids Club Concert Series, Puyallup’s Noon Tunes, and Kent’s Summer Concert Series.
We have also been fortunate enough to play a couple of very special annual events like the 4th of July Celebration at Cal Anderson Park, Awesome Kids Day in Burien, and the super amazing family music festival in Carnation called Timber!
Since our last post, we’ve been in the artist spotlight on the Seattle Channel’s ArtZone with Nancy Guppy, we played our last show for this season’s Kids Rock Series at the Mount Baker Community Club, and played a super fun show in Portland, OR at the Village Ballroom.
But….. We spent this weekend in Austin, Texas, (something we’ve been looking forward to for a long time!!), seeing lots of great music and playing a couple of awesome shows for the ever popular and wildly famous South by Southwest Festival. It is a great honor to be here for the second year in a row, and we look forward to coming back to rock the kids of Austin!
Today we celebrated the release of our 6th album, Are You Listening?, with a FREE “sold out” show at The Vera Project and FREE cupcakes from Trophy Cupcakes. Our good friend Nancy Guppy from the Seattle Channel’s Art Zone was there to introduce us. We couldn’t have wished for a better way to introduce this new album to the world!!
What a fabulous year it has been… We traveled more in 2015 than ever before and have rocked the faces of many a city AND continent. We also recorded what we think is our best album yet — Are You Listening? will be released in February of 2016.
We are so excited to be finishing up 2015 at Legoland ringing in the New Year with their Kid’s New Year’s Eve party!
Hope to see you in 2016!!
Today we kicked off the kindiependent Kids Rock Series at the Mount Baker Community Club.
This series is a fantastic way to spend time with your kiddos and experience live music! It runs from December all the way through April (you know, those dark, cold months that make it hard to go play outside)…
Come see a show and rock out to get your body moving!

Wow, we have had a busy fall, full of traveling and exciting opportunities…
After our show in Vegas we went to San Francisco for their annual Tricycle Music Festival. Three of us took the easy route and flew down, but two of us were in charge of driving our equipment down. Trust us, this takes serious packing skills. Two days down and two days back, talk about a serious road trip! We had a great time playing this festival, for the second time, touring the libraries and rocking out with the folks in the Bay Area.
We also had the amazing opportunity to perform from bed (in flannel jammies even!) for #Bedstock to raise awareness for MyMusicRx whose in-hospital and online programs deliver the healing power of music to kids and teens facing cancer and other serious illnesses. Show your support too by sharing this video and donating whatever you can at http://www.mymusicrx.org. Shortly after we got back from SF, we played a show in our neighborhood for the Phinney Ridge Romp — it’s always fun to see familiar faces and hang with the folks from our hood.
Then, it was onto the biggest travel experience of our lives… Our trip to India to play the Buddy Daddy Family Bash near Delhi. A couple of our friends shared the story of our trip on their blogs: The National At-Home Dad Network & City Dads Group — check them out!
Today’s show was at the Seattle Aquarium. We performed alongside a Diving Santa!
Thanks for keeping up with our busy lives! We look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming shows…
Rock On Not-Its Nation!
This weekend we played at the Vegas Valley Book Festival. We met a bunch of really cool children’s book authors from around the country and had a great time with all the kiddos and families that were there! Here’s a photo of Sarah and Jennie warming up the crowd before the show…
We started our day playing at Klahanie Park in Sammamish. This event had a great lineup of bands: our friends Recess Monkey played first, and a super fun oldies band called Wally and the Beavs played after us.
After that we grabbed a quick lunch and met back up at Springfree Trampoline in Issaquah to rock out for their Family Concert Series. We had a blast jumping on their trampolines and rocking out with these folks. Stay tuned for some cool footage from that concert!

We spent this weekend playing the Getty Center’s Garden Concerts for Kids. This was easily one of the most breathtakingly beautiful locations we have ever played. The weather was gorgeous and the crowd came ready to rock out with us! We even spied a few pink tutus in the audience!!
This concert series and the extraordinary museum that hosts it is free to the public. These concerts are brilliant because it gives families a reason to bring their little ones out for an afternoon of music and art.
We love that the Getty has made it possible for everyone to enjoy what it has to offer!
