Music with Mo Phillips

Anthony likes to keep up on the Portland music scene, so yesterday we checked out Mo Phillips at Posie's. 

A pre-show slice of pumpkin bread, and we were ready to rock!

We liked Mo a lot!  He refers to his audience as "dudes" and, like Mr. Ben, makes sure to sing every child's name.  He has a song called "Robot Rodeo"- who wouldn't love that?!  Along with his originals, Mo also sang crowd favorites like "The ABC Song" and "She'll Be Comin' Round the Mountain".  He's a funny guy and knows how to make the little ones laugh.  We learned some new hand songs and one about watermelon seeds ("You just ate my mother!").  You can't go wrong with this stuff:

A peanut sat on the railroad track
His heart was all a-flutter
Round the bend came Number 10
Choo, choo, peanut butter!
