the harmonica pocket says “Get Loose with Seuss”
Family Concerts Celebrate Words, Music and Play
The Harmonica Pocket (Keeth Monta Apgar and Nala Walla) Celebrates Dr Seuss' birthday with lots of shows.
The Harmonica Pocket celebrates Dr. Seuss’ birthday in March with a series of family concerts. The Harmonica Pocket invites kids and parents to discover the wit and magic of Theodor Seuss Geisel with their original music set to Dr. Seuss’ books. Audiences are invited to sing the words to Dr. Seuss’s ABCs, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, and other selected books. They’ll also present a theatrical history about the creation of some of Seuss’ best-loved stories. Of course, to celebrate what would have been his 106th birthday on March 2nd, everyone can join in singing “Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!”
Keeth Monta Apgar and Nala Walla, are the core duo of The Harmonica Pocket, and will perform at all of these shows. Equipped with a hula hoop, a ukulele, face paint and a suitcase full of simple props and instruments, The Harmonica Pocket family show gently expands the boundaries of family entertainment with swinging, acoustic story-songs, wordplay and acrobatic antics, complete with Nala’s amazing hula hoop artistry.
“Dr. Seuss is the king of creativity and an icon of the power of imagination. He dreamed up impossible and amusing images (like the Bee-Watcher-Watcher watching the Watcher who’s watching the Bee) and brought them to life with his colorful sketches and meticulous rhymes,” explains Keeth. “He was way ahead of his time.”
The Harmonica Pocket is a Puget Sound based group known for “thoroughly catchy, toe-tapping indie-pop tunes.” Their children’s album LADYBUG ONE is a collection of original and classic tunes which celebrates the delight of nature. The CD has won national acclaim, including a Parents’ Choice Award and favorable reviews in the Seattle Times, San Jose Mercury News, New York Post, Mothering, Cricket, Time Out New York and Cookie magazines. This truly “green” recording was produced off the grid at the group’s solar-powered studios on an island in Puget Sound.
The “Get Loose with Seuss” performance schedule includes these dates.
