    Kazooey on Keys

    I’ve been cautiously optimistic about the strides Monroe County has taken towards viral mitigation, and now I’m even fully vaccinated, and I’m starting to perform in public again! This fun shot is from an epic busking moment on the streets of donwtown Bloomington, with a cute and toneful small size acoustic piano that my buddy Ross and I (He’s the one playing that snare drum) transported in the back of his mini-van!

    I’ve been playing a LOT more piano than guitar, or even ukulele, these days. Piano is my first instrument, since I was 4 years old! And as much as I love to rock out on guitar, I have to admit that piano is my strongest instrument, and where I can most effortleslly express myself musically.

    I also have been experimenting with playing more to ADULTS these days! Shocking, I know! But you know, I’ve been performing as Kid Kazooey to little kids for over 25 years, and a lot of those kids have grown up now and still enjoy a little kazooey in their musical offerings! You can catch my “Kazooey on Keys” show at the Orbit Room coming up real soon, Saturday, June 5, from 6 – 8pm. There’s a cover charge of $10, and the venue is SMALL – only room for 18 folks! If you don’t already know, The Orbit Room is WAY cool! It’s a miniature pinball palace, a gourmet hot dog (AND NOT dog) must eat eatery, and groovy local Bloomington Music Scene venue! This show IS for 21 year olds and older ONLY.

    Keep checking back here at the website for more upcoming dates, and reach out to me if you have any questions! Remember, I REALLY AM a librarian, so I’m trained to meet your informational needs!

    Love and respect, Kid Kazooey

A Book This Nice (I Like Books Because…) By Kid Kazooey, 11/04/08 First let me say, Go Out and Vote! Thank you! Now, moving right along… It had been a while since I had written a new song. I went down to the studio and grabbed a guitar and the dry erase board. I had […]

Kid Kazooey on Bass

29 September

I love and play many different instruments. My favorite is the guitar. The one I’ve played the longest (34 years) is the piano. The one I’m named after is the kazoo (no duh!). The one I’m having the most fun playing THESE DAYS? The electric bass guitar! I started playing one 20 years ago when […]

The Pirate Flags

08 September

If you count middle school and high school, it has been over 20 years since I’ve been in a band that practices every week day! Now, The Pirate Flags do just that. We’ve been practicing Monday through Friday at high noon in order to learn 25 tunes to play on Friday, September 19, International talk-like-a-pirate-day! […]
