My name is Elijah T. Grasshopper. I play interactive music for the preschool set and beyond. Elijah was created to add a sense of real time wonderment to children's lives through music and creativity. Channeling my favorite childhood characters, Doctor Doolittle and Willy Wonka, "Elijah T. Grasshopper" is personified with the purpose of keeping innocence and wonder alive in our kids today and to spark their collective imaginations for a brighter future. Elijah T. Grasshopper & Friends is a concert for children with primarily original songs and a few covers. We pride ourselves on being a "totally original entity" inspired by a rich history of kids' entertainers from TV, Movies and the world
Last spring, our program hired Elijah T. Grasshopper for an evening of entertainment and enrichment. In addition, there were many opportunities to foster literacy and support cognitive development while having a blast! Families came with blankets, chairs, and picnic food and settled in for a relaxing evening in the park and a great show. This team's interaction with the children was nothing short of brilliant. There was no wrong way or way to mess up. We would book again in a minute.
Great entertainment, so much fun watching the kids get into the show.
Price Range: $250 & up

What to Expect
Elijah T. Grasshopper & Friends appear as a solo, duo or trio act with sliding scale pricing, reflecting the number of performers.
Interactive story songs are Elijah’s specialty with a gentle humorous appeal. From the wake up song, “Tick Tock, Alarm Clock” to a hide n’ seek adventure with “Willa the Worm”, children love to participate. Enhanced with bubbles, puppets and more, Elijah & Friends are guaranteed to make kids hop, wiggle and giggle. A special appearance by the "Orange Farmer" is always a treat, as kids get to be volunteer farmhands while feeding the make-believe chickens and dancing hi the barnyard. "What A Mess!" (The Clean-Up song) is our everyday ode to Earth Day providing loads of fun with children scurrying about to pick up foam noodles and filling the baskets over and again. A great exercise in learning to keep the environment and their room clean as well!
An Elijah T. Grasshopper & Friends concert is like a Saturday morning Kids TV show LIVE! Join us for some supercool, interactive kid’s music with special guests, Emma the “Go Go Green” Bean, The Orange Farmer and their puppet pals, Willa the Worm and Weatherbee Frog. Elijah and his friends teach kids funky dance moves like the Bumpity Bump and the Pumpkin Dance, all the while promoting a message of social harmony. Interactive story songs to spark young imaginations! Age ranges 1-7.
