Ever considered what the Mick Jagger of educational children’s music would be like? Or who might deserve the title of The Boss of songs about recycling? The King of Pop(ular education about biodiversity)? Check out these lyrics from Billy B—the man who jams at 300 shows a year while helping spread the word about such poetic subjects as pollination:
Yo, I’m a flower, here comes the bee,
she wants to get, nectar from me.
My dusty pollen, she will also carry,
it will stick to her body,
because her body is hairy!
I think we’ve found our man. And you can catch him up close and personal this Saturday at the Creative Alliance. We don’t expect there’ll be screaming fans throwing their unmentionables at the guy (this crowd tends more toward throwing Cheerios and bouncy balls), but nonetheless, get ready for a rock star-caliber performance.
The “Natural Science Song and Dance Man” Billy B will be rocking out (electric guitar and all) this Saturday at 3:30p.m. His witty lyrics and amazing showmanship have won him gigs and partnerships with National Geographic, the Smithsonian, and the World Wildlife Fund. Fun for the whole family, Billy’s songs focus on the natural world and all its mystery and lessons. You might even find yourself singing his choruses on the way home, while realizing that you never knew how Brazil nuts grew—until now.
Billy B performs at the Creative Alliance on Saturday at 3:30p.m. Tickets are $12, or $7 for members and children under 12. For more information, visit www.creativealliance.org.
