Andy Mason

One good sign that a performer is a lot of fun is when the librarian forgets to take a head count.

Let's see, one...two...three...that's some really nice hair, btw.
This is about a third of the room, so we'll call it 60.
A good number, especially with the AC going all wonky again!

Today we had Andy Mason, one of our absolute favorite singer/songwriters (think Raffi, but better looking). This is the third year he has performed for our Summer Reading Program, and he has quite a group of loyal followers. He is better known to many as "The Pizza Guy", thanks to one of his most popular songs, "Everybody Likes Pizza".

In addition to spinning catchy tunes that WILL be in your head the rest of the day (right now we have "My Hair Had a Party Last Night" - and we don't even have hair!), Mason is great at crowd control, knowing just when to bring the kids to their feet to get the jiggles out;
 and patiently listening to detailed descriptions of this week's boo-boo. He is also quite adept at bringing out the inner pirate;


In short, a great time was had by all, and we highly recommend the Pizza Guy to anyone looking for an entertainer!
