New Single and Video
Welcome to the home for multi-award winning, Boston-based family music performer, Vanessa Trien, and her band of musical friends, lovingly called The Jumping Monkeys! Packing concert halls, preschool fundraisers, libraries and outdoor venues with dancing kids and families, she is known for highly interactive and energetic shows, featuring plenty of group singing and movement.
The Jumping Monkeys regularly includes Adam Michael Rothberg on lead guitar/mandolin, Fabio Pirozzolo on percussion, and Richard Gates on bass. Together with Vanessa, they create a joyful, acoustic instrument and harmony-rich folk/pop/world sound all their own.
With Vanessa's four Parents' Choice Award-winning albums of original songs based on her years of teaching preschool music and parent-child music classes and, more importantly, on her 13 years of parenting her two kids, she brings a warmth and connection with audiences that makes her shows extra special. We hope to see you at a show soon!
