    Media Macaroni blog B.Y.O.K. (Bring Your Own Kid) Concert at 92YTribeca

    Robbi K has great stage presence, and she was great with the kids in the audience. At one point she got down in the middle of the kiddie dance floor and had the kids dancing and singing. It took shy Olive a while to get warmed up, but she was grooving by the end. Robbi K even brought some rooster puppetry into the act. Can’t go wrong with that. It was a lovely morning, and Robbi K is a nice change of pace from the usually rock and pop inspired kids music. Also, 92YTribeca has a terrific space to see a show like this. The vibe is casual, there’s room to dance, it sounds great, and there’s a cafe on the scene to grab a cup of coffee. I’m pretty sure I even saw one parent with a mimosa. (I was tempted to hunt down a martini but then realized, despite the fact that I was in a club seeing live music, it was 11:00 in the morning and I was surrounded by preschoolers.) This concert was part of 92YTribeca’s B.Y.O.K. (Bring Your Own Kid) series of ongoing family concerts. http://blog.92y.org/index.php/weblog/category/family_programs/92TRI

    Great show at Godfrey Daniels in Bethlehem last night. You and your family are a wonderful addition to our community. I loved it that the three of you sang together on stage and got the audience going too.

    Hey Robbi, Turned out to be a very interesting day for me as well as for you. I hope you're recording session was fabulous. I'd love to hear more about it. After dinner this evening, my buddy Allan turned me on to yet another intense movie, "Gloomy Sunday.". Interestingly, it hit on a lack of freedom nd horror for jews in Budapest when the Germans came in to relocate my ancestors to concentration camps. Those are the roots of my jewish heritage which I recalled when you spoke about slavery and freedom. Freedom and equality for all...is so very important. Great work Robbi. I appreciate your message and I admire your work. You are a beautiful spirit . With gratitude, smiles and a hug, Barbara PS-warm regards to Baghiti too. (My apologies for not spelling his name correctly--yet!

    Robbi: You were such a highlight to me at the conference performance. You command the stage, and your true engagement with the children was just riveting. I couldn't take my eyes and ears off of you!! Then to meet you, and find you have the same humor as us. Hilarious. Love it. Keep up the work and please keep in touch with Alphabet Rockers. We would love to remain a part of your community, and you ours! The children loved us - cross neighborhoods, cultures, and ages - some even asking us to move in with them and be their friends forever. There is something about our work, isn't there... it just lingers much after the last note or last cock-a-doodle doo! Stay on that stage forever, Robbi!!! cc-ing my crew too so you can keep in touch with Tommy & Stefanie too. :) Kaitlin

    Robbi, Just wanted to thank you and your supremely talented crew for an outstanding performance this morning! It's something the kids will not soon forget. Your energy and enthusiasm was infectious and we would have been happy to stay and listen to you all morning. Your easy rapport with each other and passion for the music really came across and engaged the kids. They were talking about it all day and making everyone who could not attend jealous! Can't wait to get you back!!! best, Suzanne

    What a great evening and it was wonderful to work with you again! The audience was definitely on its feet in more ways than one – lots of fun! I echo all that Ethel said below. Your “guys” were so nice and such wonderful musicians! And you, of course, are a class act in every way. Thanks again and hope to see you all here at Symphony Hall again soon! Warmest regards, Donna
