 Who We Are 

We are five Mums who wanted an excuse to play our instruments.  We first started the group on a trial basis and we were thrilled when others came along too and seemed to enjoy it!  We each play several instruments and sing, and we choose music and songs to play at the group that we enjoy and we hope that those who come will enjoy them too.  Would you like to play too? See Joining the Band  below to see how.

The Songs

We try and find some interesting and sometimes challenging songs for you to sing. If you would like to learn about the words, chords, history or hear a song go to the Song of the Month tab at the top of the page. You may also be interested in buying a CD.

What to Expect

We play a mixture of familiar and lesser known songs on real instruments while you and your baby/child sing along! We try to get you up and moving at least once a session giving you a chance to learn and try out some dance moves with your child - it could be anything from jigs to jives! The idea is that you enjoy the music and then hopefully your child will too!

Joining the Band

If you are a musical Mama or a Jazzy Daddy and are also looking for an excuse to play your instrument, you can bring it along to the sessions! You may only want to play on a couple of songs, or if your little one is happy, you can jam along for the whole session! If you are keen we can even e-mail you the set-list in advance. Go to the Contact page and drop us a line if you are interested, or catch us to have a chat after one of the sessions.
