Nick & Lindsay's Whimsical Whimsy

Two lifelong musicians, both teachers at heart, pair up in an interactive performance to share the delight that is making music with a friend. Follow Lindsay Weinberg and Nick Davio as they travel the rich musical landscape of harmony, rhythm, songwriting, expression, and play. Their joyful, clever, catchy tunes invite participation, so bring your voice, hands, and heart, and join in the song!
Joined by the rocking rhythm and tight harmonies of Heather Perry and Aerin Tedesco, Lindsay & The Shimmies fill the ears of kids and adults with fun, catchy tunes that get feet tapping and voices singing along. They have performed at the Chicago Folk & Roots festival, The Old Town School of Folk Music, the Beat Kitchen Concerts for Kids series, Bookamania at the Harold Washington Library, the Welles Park Gazebo summer series, and more. Lindsay & The Shimmies has recorded one EP entited "Bright Colors."

 "Do you wanna dance? Lindsay & The Shimmies bring on the beat as well as some beautiful vocals for babies, kids and adults to enjoy. It is a pleasure to get swept up in the joy of this band's tight but playful performances."
       -Jenna Murfin, CHIRP Radio

"Lindsay and The Shimmies genuinely love and delight in the music they rock for young families. With sweet vocal harmonies, a big sense of humor, and a reverence for childhood, the tunes are magical, memorable, and make you want to get up and dance, dance, dance to the beat. Lindsay understands young children and that shines in Shimmies shows. She creates musically interesting songs of high integrity and the kind of adventures that are truly enjoyable for grownups and kids alike. For young girls in particular, it's amazing and important to see and hear three women rocking out! Lindsay and The Shimmies make you delight in being a kid again."
