Since 1993 the Earthlings have specialized in shows for retirees.
They have performed over 3,000 of these shows at retirement communities,
lodges, festivals, fairs, community centers, churches and hospitals.

Their shows feature songs from the turn of the century through the mid 
1950’s with an equal mix of up-beat “toe-tappers” and mellow “crooning tunes”.

Their selection of well-known and well-loved material and their use of
 “old-fashioned” instruments like the Banjo/Ukulele, Banjo/Guitar, the Musical Saw,
Spoons, & Musical Washboard serves as a pleasant reminder of days gone by.

Earthlings' shows are interactive and include plenty of group
participation. Dancing and singing along are always welcome
and encouraged. Their relaxed, conversational style creates
an instant rapport and their infectious rhythms and 
memorable melodies never fail to charm an audience.

"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


"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 S.

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)

    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
