Back when Kindie music was just called kids music, my brother asked me if I could write a few educational songs for his first grade class. I was a corporate business consultant at the time, but my inner songwriter was begging (in A, A, B, A form) to get out, so I took on the challenge. I had an absolute blast writing the songs and even more fun recording them with some rock band friends in their basement before sending them off to school (the songs, not the rock band friends). My brother called to report that the whole school was rocking out to the tape (yes, tape, that's how long ago it was - we're talking BASF chrome). The kids were listening and singing and even learning - they wanted to know when more tunes were coming. I made copies and sent them out to more teachers and parents. Positive feedback and more inspiration soon followed, so against the thoughtful advice of my accountant, I decided to "quit my day job" and pursue a career in kids music.

Ranging in theme from “States and Capitals” to “Try Again” to “My Heart Goes With You” and even a birthday song, Musical Stew aides parents by reinforcing developmental lessons with a catchy beat.

The Great Holtzie is only real stand up comedian for kids, 3-10. Holtzie has thrown the rules of children's comedy entertainment out the window. Gone are the goofy costumes, creepy makeup and condescending tone. From the absurd to classic slapstick, The Great Holtzie's jokes captivate everyone, from preschoolers to parents. Whether Holtzie is arguing with a See n’ Say or taking a bite out of a “worm burger,” his hysterical routine keeps even the most active children (and clock watching parents) glued to their seats. The Great Holtzie's sharp comedy reflexes guarantee fits of laughter and screams of delight.
