This is totally short notice, but it will be fun! Bring your kids and join me (and my girls) Thursday, July 26 at Pottery Barn Kids at Town Center Plaza for a performance by Funky Mama Music. We’ll be there for the 10:00 performance, but she’s also playing at 11:00.
I went to high school with the Funky Mama herself. Krista "Funky Mama" Eyler is an energetic, guitar-playin’ and
sweet-singin’ mom who left the TV news business to be with her son
full-time at home and write funky songs for children. She was an on-air
reporter with KMBC-TV Channel 9 News (going by her maiden name, "Krista
Tatschl") and is currently a part-time preschool music teacher. Funky
Mama is familiar to the local theatre and performance scene. She has
performed regularly in theatre productions in and around the Kansas
City area for years and also sings professionally with the Dickens
Carolers. Funky Mama blends rock n’roll, bluegrass, country gospel,
funk, and fun
on her high-energy CDs, Funky Mama Sings: Giggle Jiggle and Grandma’s House.
If you haven’t heard her before you’ve got to go. And check out the FUNKY MAMA MUSIC website, where you can hear a bit of Rilee and Lucee’s favorite song, Take Me for a Taco.
Hope to see you there!
7/31/07 UPDATE on Funky Mama Music:
SHE ROCKS! I loved her. My kids loved her. Even my husband loved her. We bought both of her CDs and have been listening to them EVERY DAY. The girls got out their toy guitar and microphones this morning and put on a ROCKIN’ performance of Take Me for a Taco. Needless to say, I think we’ll be having tacos tomorrow night. )
If you get the chance to go see Funky Mama, you’ve gotta go. She’s got a performance schedule on her website. And be sure to buy her CDs. They’re awesome!!! Chris sent me a text message the day after the show saying he couldn’t get the song "Bowlegged Baby" out of his head. And he’s pretty much a hard core rock-n-roll guy.
