Princess Katie & Racer Steve At Kidstock!

Here's a little article on our upcoming show at Kidstock in Weston CT.  Click the title of this post for the whole article.

Here's a little piece, "(PKRS) are a nationally acclaimed band whole diverse music and theatrical props combine for a great show for kids of many ages -- the toddler set love to jump up and down to the music and squeal for Princess Katie decked out in her full regalia, while older kids appreciate the thumping rock rhythms and Racer Steve's cool persona...
My kids had a blast at this show last year, but my husband and I enjoyed dancing to their music every bit, if not more, than the kids.  They're part of a fantastic new explosion in great music that kids happen to love..."

The Obama - Princess Katie Ticket? Almost, but not quite.

It's true.  Obama asked.  I painfully declined.  

"C'mon, Princess Katie," he begged, "being my running mate would be so exciting!  You'll get to see new places, make the world a better place, inspire people...oh, and they'll still be lots of kids surrounding you.   You'll love it."  I could not be swayed.   His attempt to convince me went on for hours and hours and I remember him using the word "change" often.  "You'll get to make a lot of change." "They'll be plenty of change."  I finally had to tell him that I am not motivated by money.  He looked at me strangely, then dropped the subject.

I knew he was desperate when he sent me this "unstaged" picture of two amazingly cute kids. "See, don't we look cute? Don't you think America will feel hopeful?  We're both cartoons! Everyone loves cartoons, right?"  I put my head down and shaking it back and forth said, "B (I call him "B" - we're tight) first of all, you're not really a cartoon here.   You're cartoon-ish, cartoon-like, maybe even cartoon 'lite.'  Secondly, I just think I need to be singing my songs, remaining a little kiddie rocker, making kids happy.  Joe's your man.  He's a good egg and appears to really be into the whole 'suit and tie/Senate thing.'"  After some thought, Obama agreed.   I went on to tell him that Joe would also most likely be taken a lot more seriously considering he wouldn't be wearing a tiara and hoop skirt and breaking into an acapella version of "Tell The Truth" at confirmation hearings whenever someone was being a little less than forthcoming with information. 

Yeah, sure, I was going to try to pass a bill for 5-day weekends, choose an all-kid Cabinet, install strobe lights, a disco ball and confetti launchers in the Oval office and change the handshake to a high-five, but you know what, I'd rather just stick to what I do and watch this new Administration lead like Lincoln on its own.

So, that's my story.  I'm really happy with my decision as I am incredibly proud of my new President and Vice-President.  This country is just fantastic and I feel hopeful that we'll become more of the America that I love: the America that helps other countries in need, the superpower that is truly super and the country that is respected and adored by all others for it's good work.  I look forward to watching this country make taking care of all children a top priority.*

*Disclaimer:  Uh, some of the information regarding "B" and I has been embellished to move the story forward.  Not much, but some.

**This picture was sent to me by a uber-cool dad yesterday.  It is actually an unstaged picture.  My heart melted.  When I looked closer and noticed the little boy was holding a copy of Fast & Feisty, it melted again.  Had to post.  Thanks to the parents for sharing it.

Revved Up & Ready To Rock! Reviewed

Here's another nice review of Revved Up & Ready to Rock! by

Click the title of the post for the entire review, if you're so inclined!  From the review...

"Okay, I have a confession to make, I'm totally hooked on a so-called "kiddie band" called Princess Katie & Racer Steve....Dare I say that Princess Katie & Racer Steve can be BOTH a "kiddie band" and a great band for adults?  Their music is so catchy and their stage show so incredibly entertaining .  I was equally as captivated as my kids were."

Thrilled people are enjoying it, I remain,

Princess Katie
