The Jet-Set Family™, had a great afternoon enjoying Philadelphia native, G. Love’s intimate sold-out performance at The GRAMMY Museum® in Los Angeles for a handful of members & guests. During the family-friendly, Musical Explorations Program, G. Love sang songs, both old & new, while earning the respect of the toddlers by telling the crowd he’s personal friend’s with Curious George before playing his song featured on the Curious George Soundtrack, Jungle Gym. Singing and dancing was encouraged and that is what took place by kids and parents alike!
As a thirty-something year old parent who has been enjoying live G. Love & Special Sauce shows since my college heydays, this was a big deal! Being able to introduce the Jet-Set Tot to his music was a huge treat and how wonderful G. Love interacted with the children, especially my Little Terror, is something I will not soon forget. Throughout the set he was nothing but warm and sincere. When he singled out and high-fived my little one before jumping on stage, it made me laugh to hear another thirty-something dad in the background yelp, “Oh man…that’s sooo cool!” G.Love even managed a chuckle-smile mid-performance as her nasty “napless” alter-ego monster appeared cranky in her seat, and didn’t act the least bit uncomfortable when she jumped on stage & stole one of his harmonicas for an impromptu duet. In fact, he was very welcoming. Me on the other hand? I was 1% embarrassed for her behavior ; however 99% SUPER EXCITED my kid was jamming with G.Love during my favorite song, Baby’s Got Sauce! Mommy was so proud.
Saturday’s event is the exact reason why Jet-Set Hubby and I became members of The GRAMMY Museum® when it opened in 2008. If you happen to live in or visit the Los Angeles area, I highly recommend not only looking into the museum’s programs, but encourage you to become a member. With your support, The GRAMMY Museum® can continue to put on these wonderful events and performances.
