Bowling Green, KY – All aboard for Disney’s Choo-Choo Soul “with Genevieve!” The Parents Choice Award-winning show chugs into Bowling Green KY with sing-along-able fun led by train conductor Genevieve and her breakdancing/beatboxing engineer DC on Saturday, September 12. Show starts at 10:30 a.m. Tickets are available by calling 270-904-1880 or online at theskypac.com.
This fundraising concert has been made possible by our concert sponsors, State Farm Insurance agent J.R. Wade and Upland Title, LLC owner Attorney Joe Loney. These local business owners are excited for the Railpark to be offering a kids concert to benefit Railpark. Immediately following the concert will be a meet & greet opportunity for all attendees made possible by Independence Bank.
“This is a smart, captivating show that not only reaches the train-loving preschool and kindergarten set, but also thoroughly entertains grown-ups,” says Historic Railpark executive director Jamie Johnson.
Teaching children through music, Choo-Choo Soul delivers soulful and current renditions of the ABCs, 1-2-3s, and learning how to be polite. It’s the high-energy stage version of the Junior Disney television show, peppered with rich, upbeat vocals and dazzling dancing.
The show was born out of a creative parent’s frustration with his own children’s sonic entertainment. Seeking an escape from “bad children’s music,” video game designer Greg Johnson created Choo-Choo Soul while he was working on an Xbox project “ToeJam & Earl III, Mission to Earth.” He and Burke Treischmann, who was the audio lead and music director on the video game project, met Genevieve Goings when she auditioned for one of the voiceover roles in the game. The trio combined creative efforts, landed a pitch with Disney, won over a focus group of four- and five- year-olds, added “engineer” Constantine “DC” Abramson to the show and the train barreled out of the station to the screen and the stage.
The L.A.-based Goings, who has toured with her neo-soul band Legato and done studio work for a variety of musicians and voiceovers (video games, children’s toys and television), has released a solo album “Diversity Personified,” which reflects both her heritage and ability to cross genres and styles, as well as the recent independent album “Do You Know?” Her “engineer” and former Legato bandmate DC – who adds beat boxing and breakdancing to Choo-Choo Soul – is also one of the NBA’s mascots as well as an actor and a painter. The energetic duo combines unique talents on The SKyPAC stage for one day only in Bowling Green KY.
