Kids Rhythm & Rock Review
Tuesday, July 11, 2017 at 2pm.
Boston-based children’s musician singer/songwriter Wayne Potash may not be new to the genre, (his first album came out in 1989), but his music still sounds fresh and fun. Wayne will be performing songs from his latest album, Rock & Roll Party, which has already won the 2017 Parents’ Choice Fun Stuff Award and features a combination of original tunes that is music for kids that grown-ups can dig! Wayne’s solo shows are all about fun and interaction. Children will relate to the variety of subjects covered in his performance, including everything from having a sweet tooth, to the adventure of going to a baseball game, to a train heading down the track. Several very special creatures will be featured in their own songs as well, including, “Boris the Spider,” “Clawzy the Sea Monster,” and “Willy the Woolly Mammoth.” Preschoolers will love dancing to the rock and roll beat while younger grade schoolers will enjoy the clever, catchy lyrics which tell a different story in each song. There’s a little something for everyone from “Bobcats” which combines both the animal and the construction vehicle into one song as well as “I’m a Little Princess”, a song about a little girl getting ready for her princess party.
Wayne’s performances have an energetic, upbeat vibe and include sing-a-longs, dancing, jumping, running and participation while musical styles include Rock & Roll, Blues, Funk, Pop, Bluegrass, and Jazz.
So, join Parent’s Choice Award Winner and one of the most experienced musicians working with young children in New England, Wayne Potash, for a rockin’ good time! For more information on Wayne go to: waynepotash.com. His music is available on Spotify, Pandora, Amazon, and CD Baby.
