Artist Statement

We laugh with an open mouth, and we laugh with an open heart. In that moment we hear the distant sound of someone laughing at our crazy culture. And just maybe for a moment we are free to reimagine things. Silly songs can do that.


Testimonials

"Alden did an excellent job of encouraging audience participation and capturing student interest. Everyone should experience one of his performances at least once."

Jessica, Teacher, Maree G. Farring Elementary Middle

"From start to finish the performance [Alden's performance] was just outstanding. The students just loved him. After the performance I had a few teachers tell me how much they enjoyed the assembly. My personal favorite part of the performance was when Alden had the signs on stage for the words to the song for the students to sing along with him. I am not sure that my son knew that Alden was getting him to read, or else he would have not enjoyed the assembly so much. My son, who is 7, told me later that day that "I am going to miss that guy, he was awesome!""
