BUG OUT! With Karen K & the Jitterbugs! Known for their upbeat, catchy, genre-swirling tunes that parents enjoy as much as their kids, Karen K & her Jitterbugs keep hands clapping and feet jumping at their rockin’, crowd-engaging shows performed across the country. The scene is set in Karen K’s Bug Out, the fort in her back yard where she seeks adventures and makes music with her imaginary friends, the Jitterbugs: Bumble (Seth Connelly, guitar); Stinky (Dan Wheddle, drums), Hop (Eric Salt, bass); side-kick and best friend, Lightning Bug (Aaron Jones, banjo and everything else); and Lady Bug (Tracey O'Farrell), vocalist. Dubbed “The Kiddie Queen” by the Brooklyn Paper, Karen K and her Jitterbugs have been featured on CBS-NY and in New York Times, New York Magazine and Boston.com. They have also won national awards including a Parent’s Choice Award and Best Kid Video 2014 (Zooglobble) for their smash hit “(I Woke Up in a) Fire Truck." Their blend of imagination, music, humor and fun makes Karen K & the Jitterbugs a family music favorite.
