Those internet whispers turned out to be true, folks: Santa and Mr. Patrick are BFFS, and they proved it this past weekend with 5 holiday shows that featured ridiculous amounts of singing, dancing, laughing and overall holiday fun. Can't wait for the next jam, Santa!
After playing for two hours for the children at Wonder Years Preschool the other day, I headed over to Eger Assisted Living for a relaxed outdoor show, featuring folk songs, patriotic songs and lots of standards, including cuts by Cole Porter, Irving Berlin and George and Ira Gershwin. (Baby Shark was suspiciously absent.....)
It's hard to overstate how good it felt to get back into things this weekend: we had music, laughter, dancing and overall joy and then some! All under gorgeous sunny skies. After so much gloom, so much difficulty, this weekend felt like. Renaissance. Just look at those little faces! And in the words of the Carpenters: "We've only just begun." Stay tuned!
Recently welcomed Ms. Suzie Q to the Music With Patrick family. Like many, she's fond of unicorns, bouncy rhythms and a good cup of java in the morning. Most of all, she can't wait to play for families and get their feet dancing!
You wouldn't think a virtual show could be so much fun, but after this past Monday's concert, I am changing my tune, so am proud to partner with my friends form the JCC of Staten Island for a new series of virtual shows, featuring guitar, puppets and a dude with some very questionable hair.
Despite the difficulties of the COVID pandemic, our friends at the Staten Island Zoo managed to present Spooktacular 2020, and the Rock-A-Silly Band was there to bring the fun in a safe, socially-distant way. Three nights of 3+ hours of music per night = a heckuva a lot of fun!
