Rick Hubbard celebrates more than a decade of providing positive family entertainment throughout the United States, and every moment has been KAZOOBIE!  Rick invented the word “kazoobie” to describe his performance. It means “exceptional, fun, involving everyone.” Audience involvement is the key, and no entertainer in America gets more audience members into the show than Rick Hubbard.

Kazoos For Everyone!

Rick’s “Kazoo Band” shows get EVERY AUDIENCE MEMBER involved. Each person receives a FREE KAZOO* and performs with Rick in the grand finale. Leading up to this kazoobie event, Rick performs his popular original songs and features “Kids Appearing On Stage” or “KAOS” as Rick calls it. While Rick performs on guitar, banjo, steel drum, and other exotic instruments, kids participate on stage -- dancing, singing, shaking maracas, or playing inflatable guitars (that Rick gives away). Every song is an opportunity for kids to participate.


A Kid's Show That's Not Just For Kids

Rick fills the stage with activity. Every kid gets a chance to be on stage. Even some grown-ups get to be on stage with Rick. It’s a fun and positive experience for the whole family -- it’s KAZOOBIE!

Positive School Shows

Rick has also developed an interactive musical show just for elementary school audiences. “Who Can Do It, I Can!” brings a positive message to kids about getting along with others, taking care of our planet, and feeling good about yourself. Teachers, administrators, and students rave about the excitement Rick brings to school. In turn, the school appearances bring many kids to join Rick’s kazoo band at the festival or family concert.

Rick's A One Man Band

Rick uses computers to create the musical tracks that accompany his performance. Over $30,000 worth of gear goes into producing a show that fills the stage with energy and activity. Audiences share in the dynamic, energetic experience of Rick’s performance, and when everyone joins the Kazoo Band for the grand finale, there’s only one word to describe it - It’s Kazoobie!

Kazoos, Kazoos, and More Kazoos

Nearly a million kazoos have been given to audiences since Rick started creating kazoo band events. Rick has become one of the nation's leading suppliers of kazoos and distributes kazoos throughout the world through his web site: http://www.kazoos.com/. His company, Kazoobie Kazoos, can supply custom-imprinted kazoos for your event even if Rick can't be there to lead the band.
