Welcome!

104.3's Ken Dashow jamming with the Rock-A-Silly Band 

You may know Ken Dashpw as a great 104.3 DJ and host of Breakfast With the Beatles, but did you know he's got a hidden skills as a conga player?   (Neither did we!)   Here he is rocking out on Yellow Submarine with the RASB at the Staten Island Zoo's 2016 Spooktacular.  How cool is that?

Spooktacular 2016 

The Rock-A-Silly Band once agin brought lots of zany fun to The Staten Island Zoo's Spooktacular event.   Seven hours of playing over two night?   No problem at all!   Bring it on!   

Carl Schurz Park 

If you've never been to Carl Schurz Park on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, do yourself a favor and go there: they've got great playgrounds, a dedicated group of park volunteers, some wonderful local families and a spectacular view of the East River.   Here's a snap from our recent concert at the park's Halloween party.   

West Fest 2016 

The 2016 Westerleigh Folk Festival was beyond-fun, with perfect weather in a beautiful park and lovely families enjoying music, food and an all-around good time.  Glad we were part of it.

The Rock-A-Silly Dancers in Da House! 

The world-renowned Rock-A-Silly Dancers brought the house dow at our recent show at Staten Island's Historic Richmond Town!  Let's just say that "Five Little Moneys" never sounded - or looked - so good!   Great job, little friends.

My Camp Helpers 

Performing at St. Charles Camp was so much fun with these wonderful young helpers, who played off my goofy, improvisational antics with great skill and without missing a beat.   Hope to play again with them soon!

"Man With Frog On Head" 

Little-known art history fact: "Man With Frog On Head" was and remains one of Rembrandt's lesser-known works....for good reason.    (Though it does kinda beat looking at self-important Dutch burghers, I think.)
