Weird Al Yankovic said it best: “caspar babypants is one of the few children’s recording artists I can listen to without wanting to stab myself in the eyes.”
The kids dressed up for the Halloween weekend (Boy was a Jawa and Girl was Princess Leia courtesy of Mom’s sewing) and we all went to the benefit concert that included Caspar Babypants. For those of you not in the know, Caspar Babypants is Chris Ballew of Presidents of the United States of America fame. He was fantastic! He played a hollow body Harmony with two gold lame foil pick ups. Very vintage and retro sound. I believe he had it strung in his usual 3 string way. At least, I think it was three strings. It certainly wasn’t 6.
He played a quick set and really got the kids into it…and the parents too. Both my kids were dancing. It was very fun. If he ever is in your area, I recommend you go see him!
