Latest News from Kid Kazooey
Once again some fun gigs coming your way this summer! From Bloomington Concerts in the park, to Birthday Parties and fundraisers and live radio broadcasts! Not only from Kid Kazooey & the BallRoom Roustabouts, but also the most recent roustabout spin-off, LL3 (formerly called the Lara Lynn Trio).
LL3 consist of Kid Kazooey (lead singer, songwriter and vocalist of the BallRoom Roustabouts) on keyboards, and Lara Lynn (The BallRoom Roustabouts’ own ‘Gantzy Dander’, or ‘Mrs. Kazooey’, our amazing drummer and background vocalist, now fronting the band as lead vocalist of LL3! Their common 3rd member is the fantastic Danny Deckard on drums (who has subbed on drums for our Gantzy Dander during times of need), and sometimes the illustrious Steve Mascari on bass (former BallRoom Roustabout drummer, from the mid 90’s! ‘Papa Giovanni’!). LL3 specializes in the music of Hoagy Carmichael and Cole Porter, while hitting other great american songwriters of the 30s through the 60s, always keeping things Light, Sweet, and Upbeat!
We hope to see you at a show or two this summer!
