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.

Becca Plays the Bass - A Grandparent’s Day Tribute

September 10 2012

In honor of Grandparent’s Day, I’m presenting our new cartoon music video “Becca Plays the Bass.”

The song was inspired by my 14-year old niece, Becca, who is an amazing musician and great bass player. The cartoon pays tribute to my grandfather (Becca’s GREAT grandfather) Marty Gold. He is the reason I became a musician.

The cartoon includes a special cameo of Grandpa Gold (He’s the band leader at the beginning and in the middle of the piece). Happy Grandparent’s Day everyone!

Becca Plays the Bass - Storyboard Rough

July 11 2012

This is the story of Becca (my niece). She is a fourth grade student trying to select the instrument she will play in the school band. She always dreamed of playing an instrument and has a great time finding just the right instrument to play.

The cartoon also includes fourth grade versions of the Debbie and Friends band. (Think Looney Tunes vs Tiny Tunes) We call them “Little Debbie and Friends.”

Enjoy our storyboard rough version. The final be ready in August!

The message of the song for kids is clear: You can do anything!
