An optional song writing workshop is also available. A P. A. system will be provided if necessary and free CDs will be sent out ahead of time upon request. Bob King writes songs that are catchy, clever, safe, and fun and he takes children on a real musical adventure.
"Canadian singer-songwriter Bob King has written some of the funniest, most original tunes that the kids' music genre has to offer. King's knack for an infectious melody is as appealing as his one-of-a-kind lyrics."
