PRESS RELEASE: SHOW FOR GROWNUPS

NOTE: Feel free to use this press release if you are promoting a concert for GROWNUPS.

Emmy Award winning “organic vaudeville folk” duo Jack and Kitty will be appearing in concert on __________ (date) at __________ (venue) in __________ (city/state).

The husband and wife duo has been described by one reviewer as “Leon Redbone meets Alicia Keys or Tom Waits meets Beyoncé”.

We call our style, ‘organic vaudeville folk’,” explains Kitty. “It’s organic and acoustic with nothing but positive vibes.”

Jack adds, “it’s laid-back music steeped in tradition but with modern pop influences.”
The group cites influences as far ranging as 1920s and 30s dixieland jazz and jug band ragtime to modern hip-hop and R&B. That rich musical stew forms the blend of Jack and Kitty’s Emmy Award winning artistic approach. Indeed, it would seem that music is in their blood.

Kitty’s uncle is Bunny Wailer – of Bob Marley and the Wailers fame. She grew up in rural Scotts Pass, Jamaica listening to a healthy blend of reggae, rap and R&B.

At a young age Jack discovered his vaudevillian great grandfather’s phonograph record collection and spent his childhood listening to crooners like Bing Crosby, Al Jolson and Rudy Vallee. As fate would have it, oddball ukulele legend Tiny Tim moved in next door to the Norton household and somehow became Jack’s babysitter.

“Seriously, Mr. Tip Toe Thru The Tulips was my baby sitter,” Jack laughs.

Jack and Kitty have performed in nineteen countries, toured for the US Pentagon, sang at the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts and were called “one of the most entertaining acoustic groups in the Midwest” by the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

The husband and wife duo live near Lake Harriet in Minneapolis, Minnesota. To connect with them, visit: http://www.jackandkittymusic.com.

PRESS RELEASE: SHOW FOR KIDS

NOTE: Feel free to use this press release if you are promoting a concert for KIDS.

Emmy Award winning “organic vaudeville folk” duo Jack and Kitty will be appearing in a special concert for children and families on __________ (date) at __________ (venue) in __________ (city/state).

The husband and wife duo has been described by one reviewer as “Leon Redbone meets Alicia Keys or Tom Waits meets Beyoncé”.

We call our style, ‘organic vaudeville folk’,” explains Kitty. “It’s organic and acoustic with nothing but positive vibes.”

She adds, “I was a preschool teacher so we make sure our shows for kids are very engaging – we encourage children to sing-a-long. Our shows become a big family dance party!”

In addition to performing for grownup audiences, Jack and Kitty are one of the 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 aired 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 saw Jack and Kitty’s work for youngsters every day.
