Rockin' mamas

Thanks to our friends over at Fairfield County Child, the Bug and I got to treat Aunt Katy and cousin Lily to a rock concert today - the Swingset Mamas were playing here in Stamford. What a fun show! The band is fronted by two women who sing an eclectic mix of songs - reggae to rock to calypso - for which the preschool set goes totally bonkers. It was a sold-out show, and from the first note the kids were totally rocking the house - they even had their own mini mosh-less pit down in front of the stage! The Bug was in awe, and barely stopped dancing during the entire show!


The band has a couple of CDs and a DVD, all of which have gotten rave reviews - we'll definitely be adding them into our rotation, too.

She's a couple steps ahead already... you should see some of her moves! Perhaps we can coax you up for Gathering of the Vibes this year to see for yourself! :)
