Fritz and his "Musical Friends" was created to capture and keep the attention of children up to 10 years old and their parents. Introducing his musical instruments as his "Musical Friends" (who came along with him on that day) he encourages the children to share their knowledge of each one as it is presented. This concept not only holds their interest but it also teaches the younger children what various instruments look an sound like. After a brief history about each instrument, he then play songs on it that will motivate the entire audience to laugh, get silly, dance, clap and singalong. Moving on to the next instrument he repeats this process as the show continues. Performing many of his original songs and utilizing 6 and 12 string guitars, mandolin, harmonicas, and tambourine and great songs such as Day Ohh (Harry Belefonte), The Unicorn Song (Irish Rovers), Old McDonald, Twinkle Twinkle, Itsy Bitsy Spider, Coming Round The Mountain, Old Susanna, I've Been Working On The Railroad and other great childrens classics take on new life bringing smiles and enjoyment to the young and young at heart!!
