Gabby La La & the Ukulady @ Echo Curio

The show (9-19-09) was a lot of fun! I got to meet the one and only, Gabby La La (pic to prove it above)! I read about her online trying to find kickass kids acts. Found her in the Kidzone at Michael Franti's Power to the Peaceful Festival website. Her album, Be Careful What You Wish For... was produced and engineered by the one and only, Les Claypool (one of my childhood heros!) Les Claypool best describes her, "Besides being an accomplished Sitar player, Gabby La La utilizes Toy Piano, Ukulele, Theremin, Accordion and Butterfly-Guitar while tap dancing and singing like Glinda the Good Witch from the Wizard of OZ. She is a wonderful inspiration and I whole heartedly support her nomination for Secretary of State." The album was released on Prawn Song Records--the label is associated with many of my old favorites in the 90's such as Sausage, M.I.R.V., and the Charlie Hunter Trio (not to mention the Primus records!). Check out her album, its brilliant! The Ukulady along with the Ukulad were super fun too. They wore cute matching outfits from Roswell and covered, "She'll Make Me Happy" from Muppets take Manhattan. Check out the Ukulady's album, Banned From Canters! (she apparently did get banned for real!) The album is badass and touching at once: Comedy & heart-on-a-sleeve songs! Below is the Ukulad, Ukulady, Carrottina, and Gabby La La.
