Birthday and House Parties with Wayne

Wayne plays songs and musical games that captivate children. A Brookline preschool director describes him as "calm and quirky with great participation." Even the shyest children enjoy these shows. Wayne goes with the flow, providing energetic groups with lots of action songs, dancing, and dramatic play, and less outgoing groups with circle songs, sing-a-longs, and finger plays. Wayne's shows are 45-50 minutes long for children ages one to nine, and he takes song requests. He brings his guitar, banjo, ukulele, and a big bag of rhythm instruments, scarves, and other surprises to your indoor or outdoor event for a really fun music party!
Special CD pricing is available if you would like to give CDs as party favors.

Parent Reviews
"Just a short note to let you know that you were simply wonderful at Brett's party on Saturday. Another mom and I were commenting the kids are like "Wayne groupies" - they are so enraptured when you sing, and I think alot of the parents are too! Your ability to excite them and keep them interested is uncanny. I'm in awe, truly! Just wanted you to know how many people told me how great you were. Thanks again for creating such a special time for Brett and singing all his favorites." 

"Again, huge THANK YOU for making (my daughter's) birthday party so much fun.  You made the day so enjoyable and fun for the kids.  I am so grateful that I had a chance to just relax and enjoy the party since you kept things moving and kept everyone happy and engaged.  So many happy memories from that day - thanks again for making it so extra special.  (My daughter) was thrilled, and my 2 1/2 year old was asking all day Sunday when you were coming back to play for us.
Lots of great feedback from parents who were totally impressed by the job you did - it's not easy to keep that many wiggly bodies seated and happy for 50 minutes, so hats off to you - it's a real talent.  
Looking forward to crossing paths again at your concerts - and we'll be sure to get your new CD when it comes out.
Thanks again to you, Wayne.  Keep up the great work!"

"I hired Wayne to entertain at my twin boys' 4th birthday party.  He was fantastic from start to finish.  He responded to my email inquiries quickly and professionally and even offered to learn a few new songs if my boys had favorites that he didn't know.  At the party itself, we couldn't have asked for a better children's entertainer.  He has a low-key, laid back, friendly personality that draws in even the shyer kids.  He's an excellent musician - skilled guitar player, nice singing voice, wide-ranging repertoire of traditional and original chidren's songs - but more importantly, he really knew how to read and respond to the kids at the party.  He struck the perfect balance between energetic songs and games that got the kids up, dancing, moving around, tossing beanbags, etc. and quieter songs that helped them settle down.  He kept everyone's attention (parents included!) for the full 45-minute show and the time really flew by - no-one seemed uninterested for a second. We gave out CDs as party favors and kept one for ourselves - the boys ask to listen to it almost every day and frequently pretend to "be Wayne" as they sing and play their toy guitars.  I highly recommend Wayne as a children's entertainer - and in fact will probably ask him to return for next year's party as well!"
