Joanie Leeds & The Nightlights’ at The Skirball Center June 21, 2014

Category: Activities, Performances, & Events

Joanie Leeds The NightlightsJoanie Leeds & The Nightlights’ show will be a high energy, interactive experience from start to finish, showcasing such “Joanie favorites” as “Mosquitoes,” “Blast Off,” “Wimoweh,” and “Freeze Dance,” along with an array of genre-hopping tunes from Joanie’s newest album, Good Egg. “Blast Off,” one of Joanie’s most requested and rowdiest tunes, gives kids a chance to practice counting down from 10 backwards and then jumping as high as they can when everyone shouts, “BLAST OFF!” On “Mosquitoes,” kids don’t even realize they’re learning to clap to the beats when they join Joanie in trying to “get ’em!” Kids will move like crazy during Joanie’s “Freeze Dance” song, and on “Wimoweh” Joanie and the band will encourage kids to settle down and pretend to sleep and then startle their grown-ups when they ROAR! like lions.


Joanie Leeds says, “I’ve never been one to stay stuck in any one particular musical style because I know kids love ’em all — rock, pop, funk, soul, ska, go-go, gospel, country — and frankly, so do I!”
