Recognition! That's what makes us artists and family bands keep doing our thing. The "Room 28" music video had some awesome web recognition in June:
Wii Were Kids says:
Now you can continue to listen to gangstas shooting and hustling around, while we go for kids with a big smile of their face. Music is not just about nodding heads, it's also one of the strongest and fastest way to get into people's mind, especially if they're youngsters. Positive music and good education goes together in order to create a better future. That's how we all should roll.
On April 17, 2011, our song, "The Love Bubble" was featured on the podcast, Kindiecast with Tor Hyams!
"Supertalents" (off our album, the Love Bubble) featuring Gregory Brown, will be featured in the U.S. Department of State's "Sing Out Loud: Modern American Rhythms CD." The CD will be released throughout the world to help teach English through song. More on this later when the CD has its official release (date to be determined, but hopefully by the end of the summer.)
Also stay tuned for more updates on the 3d Supertalents music video, still currently in post-production phase.
June 11 & 12, Ava and I with honorary Chocolate Chip Hula Hooper, Jessi-Fresh, rocked out the Harmony Fest's Kids Zone in Santa Rosa. For more pics click here. You can say we officially opened up for the Flaming Lips and Primus.
Here's a pic I took of the Flaming Lips on my celly. Incredible, eh?
Also, Grandma Cookie and I got to rock out as Evil Sandwiches with magical super friends the Ukulady, Gabby La La, Don Black, and Emily Butterfly. How cool is that?
Met some great peeps in the Kindie scene over the past few months. At Kindiefest in NYC this May, I met Dan Zanes and 23 Skidoo. Met a ton of other ubertalents---too many to name!
Mid June, here in LA, there was a "So Cal Kindie Cook Out" at David Tobocman's pad for a little BBQ campfire jam session organized by NYC kindie writer, Jeff Bogle. Got to jam out with David, the Pop Ups, Birdie Mendoza, and Rhythm Child! Around the fire, we roasted smores and played some Bob--Dylan and Marley, Beatles, Woody Guthrie, Violent Femmes, and even the Pixies. Fun times indeed!
Coming up, we have a couple shows with the TNP crowd over in Little Tokyo! July 19th, we're rocking TNP and will be debuting our new song, "Happy Place." Here's the info. Also, August 6th, TNP presents the J-Town Summer Sessions. We will be recording this performance and it will feature the Ukulady's Ukulad on banjo and mandolin!
