Former TV actress Heidi Swedberg (Seinfeld) pulls together a talented and ecclectic (saw and tuba?!) band offering interactive fun for the whole family with and emphasis on ukulele. Bring your uke, she'll teach you how to play! All ages have a great time and share deep world musical connections.

Biography

Actress/musician Heidi Swedberg (Seinfeld, Galaxy Quest) Loves to share the joy of music with people of all ages. She and her partner, Daniel Ward make beautiful music together. They believe in the incredible power that being a music producer (not just passive consumer) can bring to all people, and believe we all have a song in our soul to share.

Daniel brings his incredible expertise on the strings to the band, giving the ukulele a new dimension. His skills as a flamenco guitarist and all-around great guitarist play against Heidi's story telling skills. They play music from around the world, focusing on the folk traditions with a healthy helping of pop and jazz.

We do concerts for all ages and also teach ukulele workshops, from beginner to advanced.

Our shows are a great time for ALL AGES!

WHAT IS A SUKEY JUMP?
It's a Play Party! Where folks of all ages gather together to make fun by singing songs and moving their bodies!
The smallest of children to the most revered of citizens can enjoy singing songs, playing instruments and dancing together with music that take us back to our roots, where ever we may be from.

Heidi Swedberg is a performer who has weathered network television and is well know for her tenure on Seinfeld, as George's ill-fated fiancee. For her, entertainment takes a back seat to fun. What's the difference? One is a product to be consumed and the other a production to participate in! Bring yourself, your little ones and your elders. We all can enjoy singing songs from around the world and moving together in an hour of the dazzling, unplugged song and dance we call life.
