PDX Parent Picks us!
Our friends at PDX Parent did their annual best of, called PDX Parent Picks, and in our category, Best Kindie Musicians/Performers, we were a Top 5 runner up! The winner was our good friends Olive & Dingo. Our first regular show was at Flying Cat Coffee back in 2010. Olive started coming to those shows and doing balloons for those kids. She designed our 2nd t-shirt, which is also the CD cover for our 2nd CD, Junior. Now she and Dingo do awesome story times all over the place. Congrats to Olive & Dingo!
Mr. Hoo Kazoos are here!
Did you know the kazoo was invented in the 1840's? It was invented in the United States by 2 guys named Alabama Vest and Thaddeus Von Glegg, and first introduced to the world at the Georgia State Fair in 1852. They didn't call them kazoos. They called them the "Down South Submarine". We're not making any of this up, it's all from the National Kazoo Day website. And now, 164 years later, you can get a Mr. Hoo Kazoo at any upcoming show. We're sorry it took so long. (Coming soon, Mr. E Calliope!)
