Mr. Singer & the Sharp Cookies

The Sharp Cookies are way cool in our book
— Lou Carlozo: Chicago Tribune

Party Starting Beat Commanders 

Mr. Singer & the Sharp Cookies are greater than the sum of their crumbs. Kerry Appleberry’s enchanting vocals & engaging stage presence, Mr. Singer’s vibrant singing, strumming and happy harping and Marius Mustard’s natural showmanship and propulsive drumming fuse together to form a refreshingly-original sound and one electrifying live show! Be prepared for spirited sing-a-longs, thumping rhythms and high-energy call and response. Dancing? Indubitably. A cappella? You betcha. Larger-than-life puppetry? Darn tootin’!

Good time? Guaranteed.

We’ve heard rumors that Mr. Singer was the best around, a talented guitarist whose folksy music set featured music you could bob your head to. We were not disappointed. He rocked every tune, brandishing his guitar and jumping to the beat. The children adored him.
