Froggy's Famous Fanclub
Froggy's Famous Fanclub is named in honour of 'Froggy' the puppet freind who has participated in every one of Jake's music with pre school kids over the last 20 years.
Jake is currently running them in two venues. Tara Arts on Wednesday mornings and the Home Community Cafe on Friday mornings. All proceeds from the Home Community Cafe session will be donated to 'Just Shelter' a local charity that provides direct support to refugee families in Northern France and the UK.
About Froggy's Famous Fanclub
Jake started working with pre school children nearly 20 years ago with a music friend, Bea Couch, who runs her own music sessions: Bea's Baby Music. Jake started working in several nurseries including Blundell's nursery in Battersea (now Working Mums Nursery, Battersea) where he has played music session for the children twice a week for 18 years. Initially using nursery rhymes and well known singing games like 'Sleeping Bunnies', Jake developed his repertoire of kid-friendly music and has written and adapted songs and games to provide a unique and dynamic way of enjoying and sharing live music with the whole family.
Within a year Jake was working as a musician in three nurseries and was getting known as a specialist in Children's music. This led to writing and performing music for children's TV with cameo performances in CBeebies' Rhyme Rocket and composing/performing the Channel 5 children's animation 'Birdbath', where Jake performed as an animated song thrush and wrote over 60 songs for the show.
This is the hello song I wrote for the tea time treats. I think I've nearly said hello to everyone now
You can still buy a DVD of Birdbath or watch them online. Yes it is Jake singing on the tree playing a lute thing which is pretty hard with wings
This a demo of the Dino song featuring the marvelous vocals of Rebecca Bennet who was my lead singer in the Tea Time Treats
Let's go to Hawaii is a fun ukulele song where we get to row a boat, climb a coconut tree, hula dance & surf ! Phew
