In addition to performing their unique blend of “organic vaudeville folk and jug band music” for adult audiences at theaters, performing arts centers, fairs and festivals, Jack and Kitty are one of the Midwest’s most in-demand musical acts for children. Their understanding of this younger audience comes from the years Jack and Kitty spent as co-creators and co-stars of a hit preschool kids television series, which currently airs on over 150 PBS member stations nationwide and in 175 countries worldwide via the AFN Family Network. Nominated for six Emmy Awards, an average of 5 million families see Jack and Kitty’s work for youngsters every day.
A FREE ALBUM – FOR KIDS AND FAMILIES
YOU MAKE ME HAPPY is Jack and Kitty’s new album of original material aimed at a children’s and family audience. Positive preschool pop heavily influenced by early Americana traditions, this collection has an organic vaudeville vibe with influences of honky tonk country, bluegrass, ragtime jazz and old-time folk. The album was recorded in Minneapolis and Nashville and invites listeners to dance like monkeys, hop like kangaroos, do the hula, stomp on one foot and go bananas in Jamaica. Highlights include the laid back island soul of We’re All A Rainbow and the rockabilly silliness of Rockin’ With Jack And Kitty. Fun for the whole family, You Make Me Happy is a madcap musical journey that will make all ages…happy!

SUPPORT US…BUT ONLY IF YOU WANT TO!
The cost to make this record was significant. We had to pay for studio time, engineers, additional studio musicians (hey the piano and drums don’t play themselves!) and we paid to have the album professionally mixed and mastered. If you want to support us, feel free to pay what you think it’s worth – or what you want. Consider this our virtual tip jar and we’re just street musicians caught somewhere on the internetting of the world wide webs. Thank you so much for your support!!
