Welcome!

Father's Day 

My daughter's assessment of her dad was spot-on, I think.   Happy Father's Day to dads everywhere and everywhen.

Camp Good Grief 

The good people who volunteer at Camp Good Grief of Staten Island truly are angels on this earth: they provide a free weekend of camp for children mourning the loss of people close to them.  This past weekend they invited me to again do a drum circle with the children they serve, and, man, what an amazing experience it was.   Please check out their website at campgoodgriefsi.com if you know a family who might benefit from this healing weekend.  

Out of the mouths of babes... 

While helping out a my kids' swim meet the other day a girl from the other team approached me, saying, "You look familiar. Do I know you from somewhere." When I told her I play music for kids her eyes widened in an "aha" moment of recognition. "You're the guy with the frog on your head!" she said and smiled. Now THAT'S something to make a fella smile.

PS 9 Show 

Recently had the pleasure of putting the poems of some of the first-graders at PS 9 to music and performing the songs for them at school.  What fun!  What imaginations!   Here's a small sample of the lyrics I got to work with.   Move over Bob Dylan!

Recent Facebook Review 

A mom kindly wrote this review after I did a party for her daughter's first birthday; thought I'd share:

"Honestly, the best entertainment for a child's party.  He is amazing with kids and enjoyable for adults too! We were beyond happy with the excitement and energy he brought to our party. Our guests were raving about him! What a wonderful and talented person."  

(Thanks for the kind words, Lauren.)

The Rock-A-Silly Band once again brought musical joy to the Staten Island Zoo's Groundhog Day celebration with our original song "Staten Island Chuck."   We were on the morning news across the city!   Chuck dazzled the crowd with "moves like Jagger" and then predicted an early Spring! You'll never see Al Roker do that!
