Today's show was PACKED! I could not believe my eyes. There was just rows and rows of kids and parents smushed up against one another, kids climbing on parent's shoulders, other kids trying to climb on those kids, parents climbing over kids...you get the idea...it was nuts!
We promise to make the next concert at Chelsea Market in the back near the 10th Avenue entrance. It was 24 degrees in NYC this morning and to have such a turnout was just remarkable...how did you all get out of your cozy beds to make a concert at 10:30 am? Pray tell!
We had an amazing concert with you all and hope you had fun!
On another note, I've posted another blog at Hilltown Families giving a little insight into life in the Kingdom. Click the title of this post to read it!
Thank thee kindly for attending and check the "shows" section of our site for upcoming shows!

Dear Darlin' Diary!
Today was fantastic. We had a packed house for our CD Release Concert for Fast & Feisty and I must say that between the racing flags, glow sticks, costumes, flashing lights, signs and PKRS Wheel of Rock, there was so much to do and see. It was a great show and so much fun to perform the new music!
This coming Sunday (January 20th) we're going to be at the Chelsea Market for a free show! We're having a sneakers concert to celebrate our new song, Sneakers!
The show starts...well, I just tell ya everything....

PKRS SNEAKERS CONCERT
75 9th Avenue
(15th & 16th Streets)
We're really excited because we've been getting really nice reviews about our CD, Fast & Feisty! Check out what Cool Mom Picks had to say:
Right now, with writers striking and award shows canceling, we're in need of some good entertaining. Thank goodness for Princess Katie & Racer Steve stepping in to save the day by pre-releasing Fast & Feisty, a fast (and feisty) tribute to all that's great about kids music.
The album features ten songs and four skits of pure musical goodness. Songs like Holidays swing, Sneakers rocks, The Pillow cha cha chas, while Go Go Go! uh, goes. And all the while, lead singer Princess Katie (nee Kathleen O'Sullivan) sings her big heart out with her perfected Natalie Merchant sound sprinkled with swirlies of Diana Krall, Edie Brickell and The Sundays. Yeah, that's right. I said The Sundays.
Don't let the cartoon character concept scare you. This is a seriously great band. Plus, I hear they are fantastic live performers. Fantastic live performers who are currently allowed to perform without crossing a picket line. -Laura, Cool Mom Picks!

Oh, excuse me while I take off my cool radio headset! Yes, you heard right...my RADIO headset!
Bill, Ella & Liam of Spare The Rock, Spoil The Child, have asked Racer Steve and I to guest DJ on their ultra-cool kids' music radio station (Valley Free Radio • 8 to 10 am Saturdays • Northampton, Mass. • 103.3 FM).
The show is online now and we're really excited because it was so much fun to do and a huge honor. If you don't know about Spare The Rock, I suggest you click the title of this post and get hip...QUICK!
Being that we're usually so busy either writing, recording or performing our own music, it's not often that we get the opportunity to listen to other kids' musicians out there. It was great to listen around and come up with a playlist.
Big thanks to the Childs' family for letting us host and be sure to listen in!
Mixin' and scratchin', I remain,
