"Thanks for presenting such a fine, fun program here this past week. I still think I had the most fun at the show. You did a good job accommodating the variety of people who attended.
      - One of the little girls who came to your program was at my story time this morning. I was  talking about strange words that we don’t hear very often and she said “you mean words like equinox?”  She even told me what it means. She learned these things at your program. I was impressed. She’s 3 ½ years old!
       Hope you can stop in again one day..."

"Dear K.C. and Ms. Ann
My Mom took my brother and I to the Winter Haven Library a couple of weeks
ago to see you and bought a CD and then to the Lake Alfred Library yesterday.
I volunteered to be on stage and was the Lamb and Goat in the song called 'Mares Eat
Oats'. Do you remember me? Well, I think you're really great! I love your shows!
Love,

Michelle C. - 7 years old"

"Opening our 'Sasquatch' ride with your video and song of 'Bigfoot Boogie' was a hit!
I enjoyed very much the collaborative creative process of working with you guys."
Les Hudson, Vice President of Ride Design, Six Flags Theme Parks


Hi KC & Ann,
I received my two Earthlings CDs in the mail today and I am thrilled with them both. I purchased them for use with my elementary school students. I heard  of your music by way of a friend who organized a skit and we used your "Bigfoot Boogie" song in the skit. She said she had owned the CD for years but couldn't remember where she had gotten it. So I searched online and found you and placed my order. I am sure I and my fellow teachers will be making several more orders. I'll be checking your website for your newest CDs. Thanks so much for your prompt mailing of my order and most of all for your fun music!      ~   Vicki, Port Orchard, Washington

"My two sons and I saw you today at the Anna Maria Island Library,
We bought a couple of CD's and have been listening to them all day.
 My sons love all the songs and keep asking to play them again and again." 

~ Kelly Seagraves

Hi There! I see that you get a lot of positive comments,
but I just had to write to tell you how much my son LOVES your music.
 My ten year old daughter can quote every word from every song on your "StorySongs" CD! We came to see you in Safety Harbor and bought the CD and it has been playing non-stop in our car ever since! My son's favorite song is "Leapin' Lizards"  and he wants to hear it again and again. I have to get one of your other CD's because I know all of the words, beats and nuances of this one. Thanks for your fun music!
Sincerely, ~ Megan (Alexander's Mom)
