In their hometown of L.A., a recent performance by Gwendolyn and the Good Time Gang was described like the second coming of Beatlemania, with kids shrieking and rushing the stage. Developing a following on the East Coast, this West Coast band will be touring through New England with a stop at the Children’s Art Museum in Shelburne Falls, organized by Hilltown Families (that’s us!).
“Gwendolyn and the Good Time Gang, one of those rare kiddie albums that’s endearing to tots but has enough weirdo musicality to make it appealing to adults.” – LA Weekly
Both children and pop-art aficionados will enjoy this seven-piece band whose lead singer, Gwendolyn Sanford, dresses like a rag-doll with knee socks and exaggerated blonde pigtails. Their music has aired locally on both the Hilltown Family Variety Show and Spare the Rock, Spoil the Child radio shows on WXOJ-LP 103.3FM (Northampton, MA), and their music video “Farm Animal Friends” has been played nationally on Noggin (see video below). They currently have two released albums: Get Up & Dance, and their self-titled album, Gwendolyn and the Good Time Gang.
“Gwendolyn and the Good Time Gang adds to the kids music genre what the Muppet’s added to the prime time TV landscape when we were kids.” – Hilltown Family Variety Show
