+ About the Performance
This program was recorded 03/29/2014 at Symphony Space.

Joanie Leeds has one of those big, beautiful rock 'n roll sopranos that can go full-out or soft and tender, and she uses both to full effect. Her tuneful melodies and rich, funny and thoughtful child-respecting lyrics give depth and irresistible zip to songs about sunglasses at the beach, goodnight hugs, popcorn popping and creative blame-shifting.


"Electric guitars and Leeds's belting vocals make this rock-and-roll you won't be able to resist the urge to sing along to...a great way to free your inner rock star." -The Washington Post


"Shine a light: There’s nothing better than a rock band for kids that can make grown-ups laugh, and with tunes like “The Tofurky Song” and “Mosquitoes,” Joanie Leeds and the Nightlights pull it off." - NY Post
