Dear Shushy Fans,
Michael, the band, the Shushies and I have had such an awesome time performing our Shushybye Dream Band concerts in Washington DC, Philadelphia, NYC, Chicago and Albany as part of our Summer Dreamin Tour that I can hardly find the words to express our joy!
Now, we set our sights on the holiday season!
Our live tour manager John Waldman of Great Knight Productions (http://www.greatknightproductions.com/) is busy with final preparations - and we look forward to announcing Winter Dreamin' 2010 in just a matter of a few weeks.
A few thanks are in order...
Kenny Curtis, morning personality on SIRIUS/XM Radio's KIDS PLACE LIVE (pictured above with yours truly) did a wondrous job serving as emcee for our concerts in Washington DC at Jammin' Java and Chicago at A Taste of Chicago - and we look forward to coralling him for our holiday concerts, if we can. Then there are the many fine folks from each of the venues and events that made our time in each city a most memorable one (and helped to make each performance flawless and fun - even my rhythm guitar playing sounded pretty good!).
I also want to extend my thanks to our amazing musicians (keyboardist Michiko, electric bassist Pee Wee, lead guitarist Steve and master of the drums Glenn), our talented Shushy dancers and, of course, the best singer in children's music, Michael North.
But most of all, our thanks goes to the many Shushy families that came out to join us. It was especially fun meeting with fans that have been corresponding with us through the months.
In other Shushy music news, a major globally-renowned rock star has just finished recording the theme song to our all-new half-hour series, which we are excited to formally announce shortly. I had the great pleasure of co-writing the song with this extraordinary artist - and we'll be sharing all the specifics with our Shushy fans very soon. Several major rock stars will be joining Michael to perform our new Shushy songs for the show!
In September, three new Shushies will be making their debut on our website - PJ the DJ (the morning personality on Shushybye's #1 radio station, MOON-FM); Starbright (a highly creative dream-maker who also volunteers her time at the Shushybye Hospital as a candystriper) and Snore (a bongo-playing poet).
They all look forward to meeting you.
Finally, Shushybye will be celebrating Christmas in August as we give away 50 copies of our holiday storybook/audio CD "Shushybye: Where Is Christmas" to our Shushy fans - details coming up at the start of the month.
Shushybye and Goodnight!
