Mr. Willy has over 25 years experience singing songs, playing guitar, and telling stories. He is a fun and silly man that children fall in love with.
He does grown-up concerts also!
His songs have been recorded by acts as diverse as Peter, Paul & Mary and Barney the purple dinosaur (he was a staff songwriter for Barney for 10 years).
His storytelling is informed by his decades of experience in live theatre.
Willy has performed at schools, libraries, daycares, malls, birthday parties, weddings, nightclubs, Off-Broadway, regional theatres, on the Circle Line around Manhattan, on the McKinney Avenue Trolley, his mom's kitchen . . . you name it, he's probably sung or told stories there.
The children enjoyed listening to Mr. Willy. He easily entertains children.
Everyone thought he did a great job! The kids loved him! Highly recommend!
Mr. Willy was a perfect addition to our event and had children dancing all around him! Thank you!

Additional Booking Notes
I am pretty self-supporting - I usually only need a three-prong outlet, bringing my own sound system (I have a small one and a large one, depending on the venue) and room to put it.
For birthday parties, I need some space for my boombox and bag of puppet and other miscellany.
