I just wanted to spread the word about a wonderful children's music performer - Wayne Potash. Wayne lives in Easton and has a loyal following of preschoolers, who I call the "wayniacs," who love him and his music. He has 6 albums with his newest "Yes" getting great reviews in SLJ and Booklist. I had him perform every year at The Ames Free Library and his performances drew well over 100 people every time. His programs are full of fun and interaction with lots of dancing and audience participation. He is great to work with and well worth the performance fee. If your program budget is too tight, check out his albums for your music collection - you will not be disappointed.

I sent your name out via E mail to all the children's librarians in our system, highly recommending your wonderful program to all of them! It was just wonderful having a program that all those little children could enjoy and participate in so enthusiastically! I don't remember any songs that the children didn't either move to or join in with...it was great. The Friends appreciate your donation to the funds through the sale of your CDs too. Thank you so much!
-Janet Campbell, Youth Librarian, Mansfield Public Library
Thank you for doing the show here. I hope you had as much fun as the patients did! What you are doing is so good for so many children. On behalf of all those youngsters - thank you!
-Barbara Blundell, Boston Children's Hospital
Thanks so much for the fabulous music time for our Toddlers and our Preschoolers. The children as well as the teachers loved it! They were mesmerized with you, your songs and guitar playing. We can't wait for you to come back!

I just purchased a couple of your CDs - my first graders are in love with those songs!

The fundraiser with you and the Music Fun Band was one of our best. Once again, thanks for your songs, stories, music games, original compositions and most of all, the joy you bring to the children.
-The Cambridge Nursery School!
Once again you did an outstanding job with our large group of preschoolers and their parents. It was our largest gathering of the summer! You can see how you've gained a reputation in Duxbury and have a loyal following. Everyone loved the new songs, but it was also nice that you included some old favorites like Rattlin' Bog which always gets people singing. The brisk sales of your CDs after the concert showed how much the parents enjoyed your music. Thanks for your visit, we'll look forward to seeing you again!
-Nancy Denman, Head of Children's Services, Duxbury Free Library
Thank you for a Wonderful Children's Day. Please save the date for Children's Day next year.
-Susan Park, President, Boston Harborfest
Thank you so much for making our family night one of the best so far. Your keen sense of the children's needs made each moment enjoyable by all. They enjoyed all the familiar songs along with the new ones. I think the songs you did with any kind of movement were their favorites. Please feel free to use me as a reference. I would highly recommend your performance to all. I look forward to enjoying your music again soon. On behalf of the students, parents, staff and board of the Upper Falls Nursery School, thank you.

We hired Wayne for our daughter's birthday party. Both of our children love singing and playing piano with me so we wanted a musical experience for them. Wayne did a great job engaging with the kids (ages 1 through 7); he was able to read their energy level and meet them where they needed him to be. He has some great silly songs that get the kids moving. He brought a variety of instruments and I even learned a few things from his educational tidbits.
Both of our children had a blast dancing and singing and our son said he wants to be a musician after the party.
We highly recommend Wayne and his songs are up on the streaming sites we use, so we listened to him in the car leading up to the party--and the the full experience in person is even better. -Mitch H. Yelp Review
I really like your songs, they make me laugh. And you know the shark one, it is funny! "All Around the Kitchen" is very, very funny too! And "You Gotta Have Stripes", now that is very funny. All your songs make me laugh!
