A great big thank you to all of the families who came out to support our SOLD OUT benefit concert for the Sandy Hook School Fund. The Coolidge Corner Theatre holds 440 seats and they were filled with kids and families all there to make music with Debbie and Friends, Bill Harley, and Vanessa Trien. 100% of the $3280 ticket sales and $200 merchandise sales will be donated to the United Way’s Sandy Hook School Fund.

Debbie and Friends will present a benefit concert for the Newtown, CT community at the Coolidge Corner Theatre on Sunday, January 6, 2013
ALL proceeds from this show (including tickets and merchandise) will benefit the Sandy Hook School Support Fund, which has been set up by the United Way to provide support services to the families and community affected by recent events in Newtown, Connecticut.
In addition, we encourage the families who attend the show to bring cards, letters, drawings, stuffed animals, etc. so Debbie can send them in a care package to the children at the Sandy Hook School the day after the show.
Two-time Grammy award-winner, Bill Harley, will make a special guest appearance.
This show is not to be missed!

Thank you to our wonderful fans who came out to see us at the beautiful Norwood Theatre last weekend for our “Concert with a Cause”! What a fantastic crowd: 400 strong all singing and dancing! It was a a lot of fun.
Thank you also for the generous donations you brought to the show for our Clothing Drive in honor of the victims of Hurricane Sandy. I delivered everything to Long Beach Island, NJ last week where the donations are all very much needed.
Thank you again, everyone. I hope to see you all again soon!Filed under Children's Music, Concerts, Debbie and Friends, Family Activities | Comment (0)

What an honor it was for Debbie and Friends to participate in Berklee’s Early Childhood Symposium on April 9, 2012. The symposium was sponsored by Berklee’s Music Education Dept, under the leadership of Dr. Cecil Adderley, and included presentations and performances by Paul Reisler, Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer, and Debbie and Friends. It was a very special day with Berklee students, faculty, staff, and lots of families from the greater Boston area all focused on making music together.
Here’s a picture of Berklee’s Music Ed Majors on stage with Debbie and Friends having a great time with the kids and families in attendance. This was particularly special to me being an alumna of that program.
Berklee constantly strives to be a great place to learn, teach, and work. Events like the Early Childhood Symposium are just one more example of this.Filed under Children's Music, Concerts, Debbie and Friends, Family Activities, Music, Music Education, Parenting | Comment (0)

I want to tell you about a special friend of mine named Jake. If you have our first CD or have seen our cartoons on YouTube, you’ve already heard his voice on our “Three Pigs and a Wolf” song. In fact, he introduces the song with his then 3-year-old voice, and sings along during the chorus parts with his brother Joshua and sister Riley. Here’s a picture from the recording session.
Jake is now 10-years old, and he took up the saxophone just three months ago. He has gotten so good at the sax in such a short period of time that I invited him to join us on stage. Jake played the “Opposite” song with the band at the Coolidge Corner Theatre on Jan. 8, 2012 and stole the show! Here are some pictures from that performance.
Jake did such a great job in fact, that we decided to make him an honorary band member with his own D&F cartoon character! Meet Jake, everyone! I think you’ll be seeing more of him on stage and perhaps even on screen in future D&F productions!Cartoon, Children's Music, Concerts, Debbie and Friends, News | Comment (0)
