What is a Cabin Fever Family Concert? If you've been to a Chip Richter Family Concert before you know they are interactive, entertaining and inspiring for kids, parents and even grandparents. It truly is an all age event designed to be something children and adults will enjoy together. In the middle of the cold, snowy, dark days of winter what could be more welcome than a warm and cozy night of music and melody, love and laughter shared with the whole family? Chip's Cabin Fever Concert can be just the thing to get us through to spring. It's a wonderful community outreach event that will entertain, inspire, educate and just be plain fun.

Manion, Glenn READING ROCKS! with SQUEAKY CLEAN History,
Multicultural- Other,
Music
“Reading ROCKS!” features live performances of well-known rock and roll songs that we link to various types of books and reading material. In keeping with the new Common Core standards, which place a greater emphasis on working with “informational texts,” we talk about many types of reading material: traditional well-loved storybooks, newspapers, magazines, maps and travel books, cookbooks, nature guides and even baby books. We make extensive use of onstage props (generally funny hats) to suggest various types of books: a chef’s hat for cookbooks, a safari hat for adventure books, a train conductor’s hat for books about trains. We like our programs to be as interactive as possible, so we often ask for input from the audience, e.g. “Who can tell me a book about a dog?” “What people have you read a biography about?” Sometimes we will ask age-appropriate book trivia questions, with game-show sound effects. Younger children are asked about Clifford, Babar or Goodnight Moon; older children are asked about Harry Potter or the Chronicles of Narnia. On occasion, we invite some children onstage for the “Captain Underpants Trivia Challenge.” Whenever possible, we include directed group audience participation, such as hand-movements or call-and-response.
$351- $500
Sonny and Perley, Sonny and Perley “Breezin Along With The Blues ~ Everybody Loves The Blues” History,
Media- Other,
Music
“Breezin Along With The Blues ~ Everybody Loves The Blues” Husband and wife duo Sonny and Perley are well known for their playful presentation of classics from the Great American Songbook, Bossa Nova and International Cabaret traditions. In this concert they're having a ball with the blues! Back in the 1940s the currents of jazz and blues ran close together. This is the era they draw from with their lighthearted, jazzy spin on the blues. Sonny and Perley don't pine or bewail—they let loose with rhythm and humor, singing and playing songs of the human experience that get your feet tapping, fingers snapping, and put a smile on your face. Joining Sonny on keyboards and vocals, Perley on vocals and percussion, will be Jim Curtin on bass and vocals.

Sackett, Richard The Mean Clowns Music
Originally formed in 1979, The Mean Clowns enjoyed a brief stint of local NYC-metro area popularity, releasing self-produced cheese-ball 45rpm homage to the 3 Stooges, and playing CBGB's, The Uncle Floyd Show, U.S. Blues, Grumpy's Place and several other obscure dumps. Originally launched as a cover band boasting a set list of upwards of 100 tunes, TMC would crank-out Slade and Dr. Feel good covers while their more popular peers played it safe with insipid AOR covers of the day. Fast forward to 2008 - through the wonders of technology, three of the original clowns have reunited (Anthony/Heath/Priceless) - and with the addition of former Corpse Grinders/Brats axeman extraordinaire Jerry 'Pat' Pucsek - they have reinvented themselves as a totally insane, kinetic powerhouse of the unpredictable - starting out with cool covers of some of their fav. bands, from The Kinks and The Yardbirds, to the original Alice Cooper Group and Ziggy - The Mean Clowns promise to deliver many other wild & wonderful vibes from the 60's & 70's and beyond! Stay tuned, oh true believer!!
