The two iconoclasts became fast friends, with each doing thousands of school assemblies and hundreds of birthday parties. They eventually shared stages and recording studios throughout the west. Dues paid!
Our respect for family entertainment and the kid’s music business led us to establish the artist support site, www.kidzmusic.com. We’ve since decided to interview and review all the artists that make the magic happen.
John Wood says: Scoot up closer, kids. Dan’s perspective is a tad skewed, that’s why I like him. I first saw him at the freeway offramp holding a well-worn cardboard sign that read, Will Kiss a Cow for $$!

We do everything together: play guitar, write songs, do podcasts, curl our hair, do our nails – we are inseparable except we live 870 miles apart as the crow flies. Our mission is to entertain, educate and certainly change the demeanor of those who have a difficult time smiling. Yes, I see a hand raised at the back of the room… tune in!
