Kidzbill presents Here Comes Trouble. Headed by mom and dad duo of New England Conservatory of Music graduates, Kelly Donohue and Jon Babu, the band blends a variety of musical genres, from funk to punk to rockabilly to rock and roll, appealing to the zany and wacky in all kids and their parents. A talented cast of characters stomp and chomp their way through an energetic and engaging repertoire of original music including Watermelon Felon, Spill the Beans, and I Like Toys. Featuring Colleen Dyer on guitar, Jacob Chmara on bass, Cindy Huang and Jennifer Jones on vocals, when you put everyone together, watch out – Here Comes Trouble!
Singer-songwriter Marsha Goodman-Wood is known for setting little toes to tapping with original melodies that mix generous doses of science and positive social messages into songs that are just plain fun. Her quirky, smart compositions take on topics from astronomy, answering the age-old question "Why Can't You Dance on Jupiter?” to nonconformity with "Sheep Don't Wear Shoes," and biology in "The Penguin Song." A former cognitive neuroscientist, Marsha includes fun facts and lessons in her songs! With tunes and stories that please children and grownups alike, Marsha takes inspiration for her lyrics straight from the creative kids she's both raising and teaching. A mother of three, she brings to her performances a parent's eye for connecting with audiences, along with a music teacher's sensibility for what works to move kids of all ages. Recently named a Washington Post Editor’s Pick, Marsha is also a 2014 nominee for Best Children's Artist of 2013 by the Washington Area Music Association (WAMA). Her 2012 release, Gravity Vacation was a WAMA nominee for Best Children’s Music Recording, and “The Penguin Song” was just named to the list of finalists for the 30th Annual Mid Atlantic Song Contest.
