This is another interactive performance--the Music Therapy dept at CHP has percussion and 6 ukes as well for the kids. This is also one where I would consider trying to memorize some songs with the goal of making more eye contact and interacting more with our audience. Most of the kids' songs are 2-4 chords and we all know the words!

    Our audience was small, but energetic. I think we had more fun than a barrel of monkeys. What a rewarding experience. Let's do it again. Good play list. Thanks to Sunny for being the bandleader and MC.
