Mr. Willy is a fun & silly music man that young children love, with 25+ years of experience singing songs, playing guitar, and telling stories.
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), and his storytelling is informed by decades of experience in live theatre.
He does concerts for grown-ups also!
Willy has performed at schools, libraries, day-cares, 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.
Mr Willy did a great job entertaining all the kids (and adults!) at my children's joint birthday party (ages 1 and 3). His music is great for dancing and the toddler's were super excited by the surprise guest appearances in his puppets. My son danced the whole time and still asks when Mr Willy is coming back to our playroom for a concert. Not only was the day great, but the CD Mr Willy left behind has been on my car on repeat and keeps my kiddos smiling and laughing the backseat -- truly an enduring gift:) Thanks Mr Willy!
Response from Mr. Willy Sings!:
Thanks, Brittany! It was fun!
The kids loved Mr. Willy! He was engaging and fun for kids of all ages!
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.
