The Singalong Club is the online version of my music circles. It is a fun and interactive experience for children who are 4 years old or younger featuring some classic kids songs as well as my own original songs on guitar, accordion, and drum. Children should bring a drum or shaker and be ready to sing, move, and play.

"Thank you so much Mr. Funnyhat, my girls are a big fan of your shows, it has become one of our highly expected activity for the weekend, we are very thankful for this great initiative."
"... we are so grateful for what you’re doing during this odd and difficult time. Olivia’s been having so much fun. (And the ‘first you get a little bit of snow’ song has been stuck in my head on a loop for days)."
Thank you for all that you have been doing to keep our two young kids entertained, active and happy during these unique and trying times. Your youthful energy, boundless creativity and magical music always brings a smile to my kids' faces and gives us parents a well-deserved break :)"

"I wanted to say a big ‘thank you’ for this afternoon’s sing-along!! Jett has talked about you for months and really enjoyed all of your visits to his Day Care Centre, so when I told him you had an online session today he was very excited. Watching him light up, sing along, interact with you (even when he was muted) was so very sweet to see. As an only child, and with my husband and I working full time at home, the self-isolation has been hard on him... it was so nice to see him back in his element and enjoying your session."
"Hi James Funnyhat :)
I just wanted to tell you how much my daughter loves your storytelling club. Her whole morning revolves around getting the props together for it and I can see her shaking sometimes because she wants so badly to be noticed by you. The bell is one of her favourite things and she puts her hands up with so much pride at being a part of it. I've shared your website with many other parents and if social distancing is still a thing when my daughter turns 4 in July, we would love a virtual birthday party with you.
Thank you so much for all the joy you bring to our family!"
"Thank you for these amazing shows in these trying times!!!! Dilsheen Jasprit and I would like to thank you for the amazing, heart-warming shows that you share with us each day.
Dilsheen really enjoys the shows and we would like to say it is really nice of you to use your skills to put a smile on everyone's faces in these unprecedented times."
"Hello James . What a great class today, thanks so much. It's people like you who make things so much better for our kids and create a sense of normalcy. My daughter was delighted to see you and get called out personally!"
“My 3.5 year old adores James Funnyhat:his live shows, his CD’s, and now the online sing-a-long club! James’ ability to create magic through music and interaction with such a young age group online(!) is amazing to witness and be a part of.”
"Thanks so much for keeping your shows going. Why aren't you on the list of essential services??!! :)
The kids adore you so much!"
"My daughter really loved the interaction today with you... the storytime is so wonderful! This was her first time listening to the storytime show and she was speaking about Anansi afterwards. During these strange times, your work is making such a difference, thank you for taking the time to help so many of us :)"
"My son has divided weekends and weekdays into days that Mr. James Funnyhat is on vs. days he is not"
"Thank you again for all the joy and support you give to the small kids who may feel a bit lost in the middle of the strange way to live. You bring smiles on their face and happiness to the parents who have 30min of off time:-) We love you!"
Thank you, James! (Our daughter) is having a great time. Yours are the most successful Zoom classes we’ve tried to date as you know how to captivate kids! My husband (who is watching her while I work from home) says that he can finally do something else rather than sit next to her.
“We are so incredibly grateful to you. The quality and quantity of your stories are unfathomable to me and so many of us parents! I don’t know how you keep doing them and they are all so good!!”
