This page contains resources for jokes. When performing for an audience, it’s been our experience that telling a riddle or joke between tunes can help keep an audience engaged. Here is a website link I found, jokes4us.com, that has a library of jokes.
We’ve also taken percussion instrument toys, like sticks, shakers, and small tambourines, to encourage audience participation. This can be especially meaningful for older audiences.
Inspiration for this page comes from Melanie and Steve. Thanks so much!
