Can't Stop Dancing
Ahoy, Mates! Everyone's favorite kid-rockin' pirate brings you 11 toe-tappers that are sure to get your whole family off their feet and dancing on the deck! Set sail for another guaranteed treasure chest of hits from the same team that produced 1993's Parents' Choice award-winning album 'The Mega Pegga Legga Dinosaurus.' In 1989, Gary Smtih discovered he had a knack for entertaining children when he brought his guitar to his daughter's nursery school to play a couple of songs for 'Dads' Day.' After the performance, teachers and parents impressed by his concert asked if he had any recordings of the songs. Taking an idea from one of the songs he had written, a Happy Pirate was born and Gary set sail on a new adventure. Since that first performance, Gary the Happy Pirate has carved out a successful award-winning career in children's entertainment. Gary counts two coveted Parents' Choice awards for excellence in children's recording, including the Classic Award for 1993's 'Mega Pegga Legga Dinosaurus.' In the television field, he has received a New York State Emmy Award and a New York State Broadcasters' Award for 'Outstanding Program Series Designed for Children.' Currently, Gary and his producers are working on securing national syndication for a brand new series. While not working on his televsion series, Gary performs nearly 200 concerts per year throughout the Northeast. Gary's travels have even taken him to the White House twice for the President's annual Easter Egg Roll. Gary's concerts are a treat for the entire family as he leads his audiences through sing-alongs and dancing sprinkled with some childish humor. As a father of six, children's happiness and well-being has always been very important to Gary. In 1996, Gary founded a nonprofit organization called the Pirate Toy Fund that provides toys to hospitalized children. The organization is growing and plans to expand to other cities in the near future. With imminent rewards looming on the horizon, Gary continues his voyage, bringing the treasure of family entertainment to Happy Pirates everywhere.
