Feelin’ Hot, Hot, Hot!

Our trip to the east coast was hot, hot, hot! We started out the week in the Washington DC area, playing the infamous Wolf Trap and Sirius XM Radio’s Rumpus Room all in the same day!

From there we cruised north to Manhattan and played a scorcher in Madison Square Park.

Our final shows were in Stamford, CT and Yonkers. 

We always love to rock out with the folks from the east coast and we look forward to making a trip out to that side of the country again soon!

Are You Listening? – CD Release Celebration!

  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!! 

Ringing in the New Year

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!!

Kickin’ Off the Kids Rock Series

  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!

Vegas Baby!

  
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…

Eastside Adventures…

  
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!

The Getty’s Garden Concerts for Kids!

  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! 

Tukwila Thunderstruck!

  A little thunder/lightning/hail won’t stop us from rocking out with the good people of Tukwila. 

Luckily there was a space for all of us to move inside because… The show must go on!

We’d like to thank the fantastic folks who put on the Tukwila Peanut Butter and Jam Concert Series for keeping us (and those who came out to rock out with us) safe from the weather and for helping bring awesome fun to the kids and families of Tukwila!

Doing Double Duty on the Eastside

We rocked the east side today, playing first at Juanita Beach for the Kirkland Summer Concert Series. We have had the privilege of playing this concert series for many years now, and every time we play we are blown away by the crowd that shows up.   This series is also well known in our memories for always bringing out what we like to call the stroller brigade, they even have a specific parking place for strollers!

Our second show was at Beaver Lake in Sammamish, playing for the KidsFirst! Performance Series. We had so much fun dancing with the crowd and rocking out here!  

Listen folks, just because the stores are full of school supplies and even some Halloween costumes, that doesn’t mean summer is over just yet! There is still time to catch another concert at one of these fine parks. For more information, check out their websites:

Double Vision

Our Saturday was double booked with two great shows right in our neighborhood!   We started our day playing at the Whittier Heights Family Festival in Kirke Park. This was a super fun neighborhood festival with treats from Honore, one of our favorite bakeries (also right in our ‘hood), face painting, and a lot of great families who came out to get down with us!

 
After that we zipped up the hill to the PhinneyWood Summer Streets Festival to rock out in the middle of the street with the fine folks of the Phinney/Greenwood neighborhoods. We couldn’t think of a better way to spend a summer day… 

A big THANKS to everyone who came to one of our shows, you helped make this weekend AWESOME!
