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.

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)

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!Filed under Cartoon, Children's Music, Debbie and Friends, Family Activities, Music, Music Education | 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)
