Malia from U and M.E answered our Meet the Vendor questions:
Can you tell us about your company?
“Our company “U and ME music is a diverse company of performers and teachers. We provide enriching entertainment for all age children, and a great time (and a few oldies songs) for the adults! I perform with a number of partners who have performed on Broadway and for audiences throughout New York City”.
How did you start working as an entertainer?
“I started working as an entertainer after discovering my passion for theatre. I wanted to create something that I could share with others. It brings me joy to share music with others and help them celebrate their happiest moments”.
Tell us about the first show you did?
“The first show we performed was exhilarating! It was so special to see the children loved our act as well as the parents. We sang the song “5 little ducks” with our duck cut outs and almost lost one of our ducks because one baby did not want to let it go, it was so fun”.
What is your favorite thing as a performer?
“My favorite thing about making music is sharing our gifts with others. We love it when the audience requests songs! It is our joy to be able to make it a special and memorable performance for the family celebrating and for our audience. We provide a top-notch entertainment and high energy to make sure everyone has an unforgettable experience”.
What kind of instruments do you bring for your shows?
“We bring guitar and ukulele, and sometimes a keyboard when we get a special request”.
What are the most relevant ages for the show?
“The most relevant ages are from 0-5 year-olds, but the show can be adapted for any age”.
Can you share a fun fact about your activity?
“A fun fact about our show is that we are able to bring on a full band to play with us! Also, in one of the events a guest, who was a former Broadway star, joined us to sing The Little Mermaid”.
What is the audience’s favorite song?
“A crowd favorite and a song we love to sing with the kids is “If Your Happy and You Know It”. We love “remixing” this song to fit everyone, even to make it fun for the adults in the room. The songs that the parents and children love to sing together are the top hits of today, like “Can’t Stop the Feeling” or “Let it Go” from Frozen”.
What do your customers say about you?
“Our customers appreciate our youthful energy! We love children and we are not afraid to fool around and have fun with them”.
A party tip for our parents?
“Be ready to sing along!”
U and M.E have a great performance of all the classic children’s songs with the special twist of adding in your own contemporary favorite songs. The show is highly enjoyable for kids and parents alike. Their performance includes musical instruments for everyone to share, parachute time, bubble time, and a story to read.
