    KK & Butterfly kid

    Gang,

    my Big-Boy job has this wonderful element to it called “Personal Leave”, and it’s where they PAY ME to NOT COME IN TO WORK! THAT’S why one gets their Masters Degree!! It’s also how I’m able to pull off a handful of Spring/Summer gigs. Check out the “Shows” tab as proof that I ain’t dead yet!

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!
