Feeling a bit camera shy


Jimmy Magoo is a devoted husband and loving father. He is also an award-winning singer/songwriter, educator, actor, director, musician, playwright, poet and puppeteer. For over a decade he has produced hip, happy, heartfelt entertainment for cool people of all ages.

Since the birth of his daughter, Zella, eight years ago, Jimmy has devoted his artistic attentions to creating great music that the whole family can enjoy TOGETHER. He deftly explores the themes of beauty, love, happines, friendship and community, without being trite or preachy. From raucous rock to feel-good folk, playful puppet pieces to killer kiddie creations, Jimmy Magoo has a voice and a vision that appeals to young and old alike.

After decades performing in both theater and music, Jimmy is relaxed and confident on stage, and his gentle humor and quirky personality help create an immediate and genuine connection with the audience. He improvises, takes requests, makes up ditties on the spot, and gets kids and parents involved onstage and off, until the line between performer and spectator begins to blur in a truly interactive show.

Jimmy surrounds himself onstage with the Good Life Orchestra, a lively and talented array of first-rate musicians and singers that take Jimmy's wonderful songs to a whole new level.
