This was a big day for Ages 3 and Up! and Rock N Romp Lexington! Our show happened just a few short hours before WRFL’s Boomslang Fest presented its first show for kids and families. The concert featured super-fun ukulele songstress (and actress) Heidi Swedberg. Heidi had local faves The Swells backing her up, and they did a phenomenal job! We did have a bit of rain before and after our show, but fortunately the weather cooperated for a couple of hours.
We are so glad Heidi got to come visit with us, and that everyone got along so famously. We were also happy to present Heidi with the gift of paw paws, presented by Jill- an Ages 3 and Up! listener from Frankfort.
We also got to hear a fantastic musical story from Seals of the Great Waters, the new side project featuring members of Ages 3 and Up! fave, Snow Monster!.
Not a lot of new music on the show this week, but we did have a lot of fun. AND we got to play a couple of songs about mad scientists in honor of our friend Renee, who tried her best to do science experiments for the enjoyment of the Boomslang Rock N Romp audience.
All in all, a GREAT day. Thanks to everyone for listening, and to everyone who came out to the show.
