The Space Chums Music Show
Think “They Might Be Giants”, “The Bee Gees” and “The Muppet Show” inside a Large Hadron Collider. Their first album, “Blast Off!” in 2011 was an eclectic mix of songs about life in space and their new adventures on earth. It quickly won them a dedicated fan base and has worn out the CD player on many a car trip. They’ve played lots of great gigs on the planet – highlights include: Field Trip, Fort York; Hillside Festival, Guelph; Kids POP, POP Montreal; Harbourfront Kids Circus Fest, AGO’s del Toro Monster Bash; Burlington Sound of Music Festival and Sick Kids TV. The release of their second album, “Calling All Space Cadets” in May 2018 reflects the band’s evolution. The songs are fuller, brighter, more ambitious musically and lyrically and, word is, even catchier. The Space Chums are: Cosmic Rock God Nikolai (Ian Goodtimes). Space Ninja Linda (Lindsay Goodtimes) and Galacto-Fashionista Gussy (Kate Keenan). In another dimension, Kate, Lindsay and Ian met while touring live theatrical productions of animated TV properties worldwide.
Ian is a musician and composer who played with Sean Cullen for many years and fronted the popular rock band “White Cowbell Oklahoma” for over a decade. Lindsay Goodtimes is a professional dancer, choreographer and circus performer. Co-founder of Femme de Feu, she most recently created the Ariel dance piece for young audiences, “Tweet Tweet”. Kate is a classically trained singer and actor who’s performed for kids her whole life. She was a therapeutic clown at Sick Kids Hospital and co-founded the critically-acclaimed Shrimp Magnet Theatre Company where she wrote, directed and performed musical comedies for kids in Toronto and across Canada. Kate is also a freelance children’s television writer. The Chums credit all their great experiences on earth, including newfound earthling pals like the amazing Mitch “King Kong” Girio who mixed and produced the album.
Space Chums songs are not your average strummy kid tunes. They’re big, POPtastic rock anthems packed with clever treats to reward the adults listening along. Think “They Might Be Giants”, “The Beastie Boys” and “The Muppet Show” inside a Large Hadron Collider…
