Miles Storm LOVED Sing-a-long at The Knitting Factory – he was literally dancing on the table, which is quite a sight to see!
Sing-a-long is held at The Knitting Factory at 361 Metropolitan twice a week on Wednesday and Fridays at 11AM till around noon. The cost is $3 per family – Bargain! Lloyd Miller from The Deedle Deedle Dees a Brooklyn based educational rock band hosts the Sing-a-long on Wednesday only; on Friday it is somebody different. I have heard various opinions about which Sing-a-long is better, however as I have only been on a Wednesday I really cannot comment.
I know that Miles Storm had a wonderful time, he really enjoys music thus this was really up his alley. Lloyd is quite popular it seems and was surrounded by Little adoring fans screaming, shaking their hands and stomping their feet! It was very cute.
The harmonica playing, guitar slinging, one-man-band sang all the typical songs like “You are my Sunshine” and “If you’re happy and you know it”, as well as songs I had never heard before. Lloyd has been in the business of entertaining Little Ones since 2003, and it shows! I too really enjoyed his music having a mountain country kind of vibe to it (if you know what I mean)?
I do recommend you get there early as the venue was packed to the rims, there was easily over 100 people there! And, unless you leave early do not expect to get out in a hurry either, as once everybody locates their pram, puts their jackets on and gets the children ready it is some time before you are out the door. You have to pay Lloyd directly, and if you do not have time to do it when you get there pay him as you are leaving.
If you want to check Lloyd out before heading over to one of his Sing-a-longs you can see him in action on his youtube page HERE.
