Libraries

 Buffalo and Brandy are sharing a 'Universe of Stories' through music, magic, singing, and audience participation at libraries this summer in  their high energy, fun-filled, reading show! Join us. 

Our 2019 summer reading program " It's Showtime at Your Library/A Universe of Stories" includes high energy interactive music (we bring musical instruments with us to share with audience members), along with magic,  and an emphasis on reading.   All songs contain positive, uplifting lyrics - such as our self-penned song entitled -  "I Like Being Me".   Our music, magic, and songs are interwoven with storytelling segments that encourage audience members to participate in our show.  At the end of our show, Buffalo mentions that he learned many of the magic illusions he performs on stage by reading books from the library. "Magically", he produces the dewey decimal number where those magic books can be found in the library, and children are encouraged to take these books out, practice the magic tricks, and create their own stories with their friends.  

Our family show brings smiles to the faces of children of all ages - and is engaging for ages 0 to 100.

Science of Sound 

Performance  

Buffalo and Brandy’s “Science of Sound” performance combines a live, electronic, and acoustic musical performance with student participation and interaction.  In addition to including important Character Education content (respect, responsibility, and caring) in this performance, it also aligns with the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) protocol .  Our live performance adds the Arts to this acronym (STEAM).  Imagine music being played on our banana piano – which explains circuits and how they work - or our Theremini (the oldest electronic instrument that one never touches to play) - which demonstrates radio waves and how they are used to control electronic instruments.  Our performance combines our art forms of music, magic, and singing - thus bringing the concept of the “Science of Sound” alive for students in this fun, engaging performance.

Great for schools and/or libraries!
