Foreman, Jon The Defibrillators Band Music,
Performing Arts- Other
Aging Baby Boomers now have a band whose music reflects their refusal to grow old gracefully. As pioneers of Senior Citizen Rock and Blue-Haired Blues, The Defibrillators poke good-natured fun at the foils and foibles of aging in their contagious blues-based rock originals. Billing themselves as “the World’s Oldest Boy Band”. Their high caliber of musicianship is offset only by their subtle theatrics during live performances. Their eponymous CD has garnered rave reviews from The New York Times, Newsday, LI Press, Good Times, LI Entertainment, Aural Fix and other local press. All the good fun aside, The Defibrillators have rightfully been called a Super group by the press. The members of the band are all highly accomplished musicians who have made their mark on the music scene.

Performances involve playing guitar and singing fun songs to kids of all ages. Being a well rounded artist, he also has several sketchbooks filled with his original ink drawings of local scenes that he can bring with him to the venues for discussion before,during or after perfomances. In addition to his music, Speedy will also have signed copies of the children's books that he illustrated: The Little Brook in the Field, a frog story, and The Adventures of Molly the Monarch Butterfly. In addition, Speedy will discuss his newest book: What's an Elephant Doing in the AuSable River? If time allows, he will sometimes do a sketch from one of the scenes from the books. His preference is to play acoustically(no sound reinforcement),so smaller groups work out real good; however,if a sound system(with 2 mics) is available and needed for a larger group,he can adapt. Speedy's favorite age groups are preschool to about 5th grade, and he generally will play from 45 minutes to 1 hr.
