Suzi Shelton is riding the crest of the “kindie rock” phenomenon with catchy tunes and hip pop-rock style. This rising star in the kids’ music scene has released two critically acclaimed CDs, “No Ordinary Day” and “Simply Suzi,” as well as a popular concert DVD, “Suzi Shelton: Live at Southpaw.”  Suzi has also won numerous awards and accolades for her work, including a Parents’ Choice Award.

For the last 10 years singer-songwriter Suzi Shelton has been rocking parents and kids alike! Whether it’s thousands at The White House Easter Egg Roll or the Lincoln Center Tree Lighting, to swarms of fans at the Tribeca Film Festival or local Brooklyn hot spot – Southpaw Bar.  With a background in Early Childhood Education and Dance, this Brooklyn-based mother of two teaches music to her adoring fans in local preschool and elementary schools and has been a standout among the current crop of kid-friendly musical performers since her days performing with the Imagination Workshop Band. Kids and parents alike respond to Suzi’s warmth, her angelic voice and no-sugar-added lyrics.  Her music is all about combining music with movement to encourage kids to participate by using their imagination. Suzi’s two solo CD’s Simply Suzi and No Ordinary Day as well as her live DVD, have won her the prestigious NAPPA Gold Award, Kids First, Children’s Music Web, and Parent’s Choice Awards.

See and hear it all at www.suzishelton.com

Suzi will be joined by son and daughter, Sebastian and Emma Rose, special guests Rich Hinman (guitar), Albert Elias (bass/trombone), and drummers Kyle McGee and Vin Scialla from Off Beat drumming collective (a rhythm collective dedicated to help people access the healing benefits of the drum) to help raise money for Housing Works, which fights AIDS and homelessness.

Guthrie and Seeger would be proud.” Cookie Magazine

Rocking out to Baby Loves Disco

This past Sunday we had an opportunity from @NYCityMama to attend Baby Love Disco [Link]. It Rocked! Think about an adult club made into a kid’s playhouse.  They played games with the kids such as limbo and dance off, which where not for my kids age group but that didn’t stop Marc. My kid was a dancing Machine, I can see him performing in Stomp right now!







Ok first how in the world did Marc learn to dance like a total white boy? Doing the hand rolls, finger snaps, and the fist bump! Due to timing we took off a little early, his nap time hit him with a little over an hour left to the party! Still he had a great time.

Lets break it down, the event will SELL out! Dont wait for tickets, go with another couple… because if you remember going to the disco you could barely hear anything back then and now you’re older and you have screaming/dancing kids rocking out.  Its not the best place to meet new people.  I thought it made for a great birthday party, if you can swing the date!
