Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
This is the forth season of my show Monski Mouse’s Baby Disco Dance Hall, which I first brought to the Festival in 2012, but my first time at the Festival was 2005 when I came to DJ at Club Swizzle at the Famous Spiegeltent and for the Bong Club Vauldeville Cabaret, hosted by Dusty Limits. I also worked for the Gilded Balloon in 2008 as a FOH and Dj-ed the staff party, when my Loft Bar DJ gig fell through that year. I love this Edinburgh.
Tell us about your show.
Aimed squarely at the children aged 0-5 AND their parents/carers, my show is really all about having fun, dancing, playing and letting loose with your loved ones. It gives both children and their parents a chance to enjoy the magic of a festival club, in the time slot when they are awake and raring to go.. 11:00am.
The Disco was first launched at the Adelaide Fringe in 2012, we sold out our first season and have gone on the play around the UK and in Australia. I was already a DJ who played playful music and loved to take audiences on an expected journey, when I become a Mum in 2010, the late night DJ gigs were becoming less attractive, so it was a fairly natural extension for me to create the Baby Disco Dance Hall. I’ve been really luck to have been able to make a show that audiences love and I still love performing for them.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
The Hairy McLary and Friends Show is great for little ones, especially if you read the books first. They are great stories, and in the show version, they’ve made a beautiful piece that’s fun and interactive enough for little ones to be engaged.
