The Uncle Devin Show® / Press

“Uncle Devin and Mr. Grasshopper, I just wanted to say THANK YOU for putting on an awesome show for the children at our party last week. The kids loved it - they had so much fun dancing and you really kept them engaged. I heard great feedback from our parents too, who enjoyed the show as well. It was a great mix of music choices, instruments, and interaction. It was delightful working with you! Have a happy holiday season.”

Meghan Dunn - U.S. Senate Child Care Center

“If you want a cool way to introduce participatory musical experiences to children, this new CD by renowned drummer and author Devin Walker may be just the ticket. His current interactive live show seeks to unite children through drumming and the art of storytelling, and use of culturally connected styles of music, such as jazz, funk, reggae, rap, hip-hop, Latin and African music. His self-stated goal is to teach children music that will lead toward their personal, cultural and social development. Uncle Devin's Drum Tales takes an innovative and progressive approach to music, self-awareness, confidence and fun, and is a wonderful album that children, parents and educators will all find beneficial.

“The Uncle Devin Show is pure edutainment at its finest. Bringing a message of love while sharing helpful life knowledge. The content of his songs covers everything from having a bad day, to proper eating habits, to staying out of trouble so you can focus on the more important things. Devin’s musical background and excellent musicianship shines through on each song. He is able to find a balance between catchy grooves, memorable melodies, and life lessons every child needs to hear. He has one of the most creative websites I have seen in a while so be sure to check that out.”

“If you have ever doubted the role percussion and drums play within modern music, look no further than Drum Tales! to reassure you of its importance. This children’s album is the handiwork of musician Devin Walker, who goes by the title Uncle Devin for this release. His goal is to produce live shows in order to teach children valuable lessons through the form of music, and he seems to do just that. Since his musical expertise lies within the drum family, he has created an album that relies heavily on drum and percussion instruments including regular and electronic drum sets, maracas, and triangles. 4 stars out of 5: http://goodvibesmusicreviews.tumblr.com/post/48695147280/album-review-uncle-devin-drum-tales”

“If you have kids, this album is wonderful, and is a great way to instill valuable lessons for them. Uncle Devin takes the issue of healthy living, one that I especially value, and conveys a strong message about eating well and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The other songs also teach good morals in a very fun manner!”

“Uncle Devin is everything a children’s entertainer should be. Always engaging, never lacking in energy and full to the brim with fun. The former youth counselor is interested in educating young children from everything to the Bible through to good health and hygiene. It’s the album you want your child to listen to. Uncle Devin’s kind voice always praises and never preaches. Ultimately, Uncle Devin’s Drum Tales is like a vitamin for children. It guarantees a healthy dose of happiness and a good shot self-esteem.”

“The Washington, DC-based educator, multi-instrumentalist, and composer, Uncle Devin, brings us a talented mix of ten songs that target younger viewers and listeners. As a children's album, the music is rather innovative and adult-oriented with occasional rap, spoken word, and helium-enriched vocals that get a message across without confusing listeners. The songs touch on social topics of Internet usage, healthy eating/living, days that don't go right, and doing what's right... Overall, the music is rather productive with varied vocals, spoken segments, varied percussion, multi-ethnic musical styles, and great lyrics. This one will be a favorite for parents, but the children will get a bigger kick out of the music. I give it five tiny fingers up!”

“Who’s The Uncle Devin Show? How you got started in the music scene? The Uncle Devin Show, LLC is a live, musical experience for children and families by renowned drummer and percussionist Devin Walker. The show cultivates the minds of children through percussion instruments and is a dynamic cross between Fat Albert and Schoolhouse Rock. I am both a drummer and percussionist, and, therefore, is known as the original “Drumcussionist.”” My drum set consists of a combination of real drums/ percussion instruments, and the latest in electronic drums. This hybrid drum set allows me to play the normal drum groove while also playing different percussion instruments simultaneously. I also use an assortment of percussion instruments, including cowbells, triangles, shakers, congas and timbales, as learning tools in his message. - To read this interview in its entirety, go to: http://ventsmagazine.com/the-uncle-devin-show/#sthash.m1Uvekid.dpuf”
