Billy Jonas Rocks!!

I love the library. That's where I first found Billy. I search through the cds on our weekly trip and check out a few new cds. I just happened upon the cd called What Kinda Cat are You. I/we immediately fell in love with the sound. I started asking around if people had heard of Billy Jonas and most of my playgroup new and loved him too. They said he plays free shows around the area. Turns out he is from Asheville and travels around doing shows for families. The library sponsored a free concert here today and we had a blast. I think I like him just as much or more than the kids. I'm so impressed with his talent--how he can make such great music with such simple equipment. And he is so great with the kids. He plays a guitar for some songs but mostly makes rhythms on recycled jugs, pots, bells, tamborines, basically anything that can make noise. He had all the kids up and singing and dancing. Everyone in the crowd looked like they were having so much fun. After the show we hung around like groupies with a few other friends and talked with him and got a picture with him. You should look him up and listen to his songs. Very impressive. (billyjonas.com)
