New York City’s The Scooches invite you to sing along and experience music infused with an eclectic melting pot of original music inspired by world folk traditions, global Americana, New Orleans verve and the unfettered exuberance of the 1920s

Garden Players Kids sing songs from original musicals which were developed right here and have gone on to audiences all around the world.

The Scooches feature a world-class lineup of standout musicians from New York, Suriname, the Caribbean, and more. The musicians, from New York, Suriname, and everywhere in between, have played with Wynton Marsalis, Paul McCartney, Willie Nelson, Max Roach, Paul Simon, Cecil Taylor, and Reggie Workman. They’ve performed on Good Morning America and at Club Passim, the Kansas City Folk Festival, and venues around the world. Elmore Magazine championed the group’s “remarkable musical dexterity with songs that bask in a genuine roots regimen and a sense of timeless tradition.”
