Yo' Mamas and Papas is a band consisting of a cast of parents from the Colorado music scene
that want to bring a rockin' good time to children and all generations of the community.
Do you miss going out to shows because you don't have a sitter?
Showtime is too late?
Music is too loud for the kiddos?
Don't want to be the only one with a kid at the show?
Well look no further, Yo' Mamas & Papas brings families together one song at a time!
Mike Studeny shifted out of night time gigging and started performing for kids as a solo entertainer, including yoga and story time with his wife Linda Lou, after their daughter was born in 2009. Backstage at The Last Waltz Revisited, other performing parents expressed interest in expanding the party to a full band and it’s been a blast ever since.
YM&P lays down their fun, positive Americana groove while weaving harmonies between their original music, upbeat covers and unique versions of classic children’s songs that everyone can dance to. Kids and their parents alike express that they just LOVE the music and the vibe creating “The Stroller Army”
Come on out with your family….. And have some fun with ours!
