Joanie Leeds Brings 'Brooklyn Baby!' Show to Children's Discovery Museum of San Jose
Award-winning kids' musician Joanie Leeds will bring a little bit of Brooklyn to the South Bay with a fun-filled, all-ages Brooklyn Baby! show at 12:00 noon on Thursday, June 22 at the Children's Discovery Museum of San Jose, 180 Woz Way, San Jose, CA. Joanie Leeds' solo performance will be a high energy, interactive experience from start to finish, showcasing an array of genre-hopping tunes from her new album, Brooklyn Baby!
In addition to such Brooklyn-esque songs as "Ferry Nice","Shayne Punim," "By Myself," and "Library Book," Joanie Leeds promises to play plenty of fan favorites like her crazy "Freeze Dance," "I Wanna Be Green," and "Joanie's Top 10 Rock and Roll Songs," which features choruses parents will recognize from classic rock songs like "Satisfaction," "Paradise City, and "Hey Jude."
Enthuses Joanie Leeds, "I'm so excited to return to the Children's Discovery Museum of San Jose for the fourth time! Through the years, this has not only been a great performance venue, it's also been a terrific place for my own discoveries. In this wonderful test space, I've had fun trying out new material, like my song, 'Helmet,' and new ideas, like mashing up Prince's 'Purple Rain' with my tune, 'Kids' Place.' I have a few tricks up my sleeve for this summer, too!"
Gifted with a soulful, "rock solid" voice that ranges from low and bluesy to high, light, and breezy, Joanie Leeds is an exceptionally versatile artist who brings serious musicianship to the table right alongside a terrific sense of fun and fashion. Says SiriusXM's Kids Place Live host Mindy Thomas, "Joanie Leeds is that cool babysitter who would let you try on her lip gloss once your mom left the house. You idolized her, and your mom knew she could trust her. That's Joanie. Only she's also likely to completely ROCK THE ROOF OFF YOUR HOUSE!"
