Songwriting class, songs we are liking and gigs

The Poochamungas are now offering songwriting classes.  Our first class was a fun success at the Skokie Public Library.  We provided the notebooks and the kids provided the ideas.  We ended up with a song called Rainbow to the Zoo.  

Poochamungas Favorite Library!

Riding in the Car.  Didn’t know what to do.  Mom suggested riding a rainbow to a Zoo . You wont find  lions, tigers parrots or bears.  Most of all you got to be aware. Goblins at the gate.  Pegasus roam free.  Unicorn rides are 2pm daily.  Don’t pet the T-Rex  he isn’t very nice.  Pixies run a food stand serving magic rice.

 Riding in the car, didn’t know what to do.  Mom suggested riding a rainbow to a zoo. Riding in the car, didn’t know what to do.  Mom suggested riding. A rainbow to the zoo.  A rainbow to the zoo.

Giant for a zookeeper.    I hear  he’s named Magrew.  Gets more creatures than you ever knew. Three legged Moogles,  elephant with wings,  more and more unusual things. Looking for a snack I won’t tell you twice.  Don’t buy the talking candy it isn’t very nice. Now the day is over, all is said and done. Who knew riding the rainbow could be so much fun!

We are considering putting it on our next CD!

So in the world of kindie music that we are listening two the Okee Dokee Brothers Can you Canoe?  is still in heavy rotation.  The brilliance of this album is it’s not really a kids CD.  It’s a folk CD for the whole family. The music and lyrics are as timeless as the Mississippi which they traveled to write the music..  We have also seen the accompanying DVD 5 times.  A really great set!  Since we also have Kids Place Live in the car we have a few fav’s playing right now.  Johnny Bregars Polly’s Rain Dance is really great.  Caspar Babypants Summer Baby  and the grandsons, jr with Hey, Stop that Dancing up there .  All three of these songs involve much toe tapping and singing.  Check em out if you get the chance.

What a busy couple weeks for the Poochamungas.  We played 3 shows in 7 days and also taught a songwriting class in that time period.  It was a lot of fun though the outside gigs were hot.  Hydration is the key to playing in the heat.  We’ll be plaing again at St. Helens Carnival on August 26th at noon!  Stop on by if you can.
