Family Concert and Clown Show - Benefiting the "Save the Music" organization
Andy Z. and the Andyland Band & Daffy Dave and the Treefort Gang
Children's Discovery Museum
BERRY GOOD PRODUCTIONS PROUDLY PRESENTS A FAMILY CONCERT AND CLOWN SHOW FEATURING ANDY Z. AND THE ANDYLAND BAND & DAFFY DAVE WITH THE TREEFORT GANG AT THE CHILDREN'S DISCOVERY MUSEUM ON SATURDAY, AUGUST 13 2005 FOR TWO SHOWS AT 1:00 PM AND 3:30 PM
Andy Z is a Bay Area children's performer, singer/songwriter and educator whose music touches the hearts of people of all ages. Andy will have children smiling, singing and dancing as he takes them on a tour of Andyland. His story/adventure-based performances feature traditional, original and contemporary songs that often incorporate themes from his 2004 Parents Choice Foundation award winning album, "Welcome To Andyland" and also "Pockets". Andy draws children into the story with a mix of sing-a-longs and pure body movement songs. Musical genres include rock, classic Brit pop, classic kid, country, hip-hop, the blues, and Irish music. Andy will be releasing his new CD, "Return to Andyland" at this upcoming event.
Andy Z shares that he has, "always believed that children have an inherent connection to music that can only be weakened by lack of exposure. Music and song have the power to heal and aid in a child's development, and I'm thrilled to be able to offer this to kids and adults. I'm also glad that there are other entertainers like Daffy Dave who are also dedicated to bettering the lives of children, and that we get to co-create special events for them through our new joint venture of 'Berry Good Productions'."
With the characters from his local television show, "Daffy Dave's Tree Fort", Lizzy Bee, Dusty Buckles, Dolly Pop and Flyin' Ryan, Daffy Dave creates a magical, fun environment for children visiting his "treehouse." Daffy Dave makes his living by doing performances for children typically from ages 2 to 8. Most of us don't think of clowns as educators, but a successful clown can have a pretty big impact on his young audience. His themes are simple, important messages that every child should learn -- mistakes are okay, the value of song and dance, cleaning up after yourself, personal hygiene, and, most importantly, how to have fun while you are doing and learning these things and so much more.
Award winner and local favorite, Daffy Dave is also a strong advocate of dancing for both kids and adults. Daffy Dave casts his contagious "fun spell" on everyone and inspires kids (and kids at heart) to joyfully dance, laugh, and sing. Voted "Best Party Entertainer for Children" by Bay Area Parent Readers, Daffy Dave will bring laughter and good cheer to the San Jose Children's Discovery Museum! At this event, Daffy Dave will be debuting a few new songs that will be featured on his 5th CD due out in Spring of 2006.
Daffy Dave and Andy Z. will have CD's (new releases and old favorites), videos, and merchandise on sale at shows. Kids can get autographs from their favorite performer! A portion of ticket sales will be donated to Save The Music, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing music appreciation and education for local schools. This event will be filmed.
