  • Support Grass Roots Artists when Gift Shopping this Holiday!

    Kid K Holiday GiftsLooking for a unique gift for a young person, or someone who is young at heart? Please do consider a Kid Kazooey gift. I’ve got lots of great music you can buy directly here at my web site. If well written slightly off center rock-n-roll is what you are looking for, try Kid Kazooey & The BallRoom Roustabouts’ Umpteen Moons CD. If you want something mellow and seasonal, try the Kid Kazooey’s Lullaby Christmas Carols. Do you like children’s picture books? You gotta’ check out my new book, The Three Eyed Dragon. This is a song of mine that artist Joe Lee set to full color illustrations.  Perhaps this is all a wee too ‘Family Friendly’ and you’d like something a little more Rated PG13? You’re going to love The Pirate Flags’ CD, Songs of the Seas. CDs, MP3s, and Picture Books, all right here at Kid Kazooey.com. One stop Shopping. Happy Holidays!

  • Love the HubMrs. Kazooey is celebrating her 45th birthday in December! YAY! As a birthday present to herself she is engineering a campaign she calles “Love The Hub”, in an effort to raise $4500 for local Bloomington Food Pantry, Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard, “Because no one in this First World Country should go hungry, but 1 in 6 Americans don’t know where or when their next meal will be”, says Mrs. K (A.K.A. Lara Lynn Weaver).

    She plans on raising the dough through a series of events highlighting great local music, including Kid Kazooey, The Pirate Flags, Kaia, Arbutus Cunningham, and I can’t remember who else…

    The kickoff event is HALLOWEEN NIGHT! An Adult Halloween Costume Party that is Rated RRRrrraaaaarrrrgggh! Come join comedienne Courtney Stewart and The Pirate Flags at Max’s Place on All Hallow’s Eve to party down like the Rogues we are and take care of our community’s hungry folk!
