The Curiosity Crew, starring Ryan Buckle, is an interactive
science and music show for kids.
Since launching in 2010
Smithsonian Air & Space Museum, the show has wowed
curious kids with great music and amazing science at
major festivals, museums and schools throughout the D.C. metro
The show features music
from our our debut CD,
Swamp Stomp Boogie and
several popular new singles, including
the Frog and
The Sun Song. The songs highlight discoveries kids can make
in the world around them,
and inspires kids to ask questions like: Ever wonder
where bats live? What a gas is? How spiders and
insects are different?
In addition to
live music, Ryan
performs awesome experiments to inspire and amaze kids,
often inviting friends on stage to help him. Audiences
of all ages ooh
and aah at the floating smoke rings, circle of electricity,
expanding "gas heads",
disappearing water and more.
The combination of music with science is magic: "Swamp
Stomp hits all the basic criteria for good kids' music:
It's well-produced, and the songwriting is fun and
quirky." (USA Today)
Stomp Boogie was recorded and produced in Nashville with Grammy
Award-winning producers and musicians and Wammie
Award-winning rock star
Hines. Each of the songs was built around
curriculum developed by
an award-winning hands-on science center for young kids
located in the Washington, D.C. suburb Ashburn, VA.
