Raison D'Etre = Kazoo Harmony



Violet Rae Downey, Vickie Ellis, and Roberta Schultz are three women who live to sing together. Described by one critic as “divinely stirring,” their singing seems to define Raison D’Etre. According to Mike Breen of Cincinnati CityBeat, this folk trio offers “some of the finest three-part harmony singing you’ll likely ever hear.”

They also do some great kazoo harmony.

Kazoos Boost Morale In Iraq



We got this letter and picture recently:

Hello,
My name is Timothy ###, and I am a soldier in the United States Army. I am currently serving overseas in Iraq. My wife’s cousin knows how much I love Kazoos, so she sent me some great kazoos and a t-shirt. I took the opportunity to start up a kazoo band and got a picture of us in action. Thanks for the great kazoos and for the countless hours of fun they bring! It was a pretty sweet morale booster! Thanks again!

Sincerely,
SGT Timothy ###
418th CA BN
Kirkuk PRT

Kazoobie Kazoos is proud to be a part of boosting the morale of our soldiers in Iraq with our kazoos.

Kazoo - What's In The Name?


NameWire is a blog about product naming written by the folks at Stategic Name Development. They recently posted an article about the name "kazoo."

Outtakes:

The kazoo is, interestingly, the only truly American instrument, leading some to believe it should be our national instrument.
...
I doubt the movement to make the kazoo our national instrument will go anywhere, because the word kazoo is simply too silly. But, on the other hand, its no different than a lot of Web 2.0 names.


NameWire points out the importance of a good product name and makes a business out of helping clients develop great product names.

We at the Kazoobie Kazoos Blog think the word "kazoo" is the perfect word to describe America's unique musical instrument, and we don't think it's a "silly" word at all. At least no more silly than "NameWire." What do you think?

Lyttelton, who died on Friday aged 86 after heart surgery, equipped every member of the 3,550-strong audience with a kazoo at a live version of the radio programme earlier this month at the Hammersmith Apollo in London and encouraged them to hum into the simple instrument.

Kazoo Compared To Accordion And Melodica



Arizona State University's Web Devil news site recently published an article "Unsung Wonders" shining light on the kazoo, the melodica, and the accordion and bemoaning the fact that these instruments are not universally acclaimed.

The kazoo is described as "a popular instrument in kindergarten classrooms." Will the kazoo ever get respect? Writer Lana Burke thinks not.

Kazoo players: band together and bring the kazoo the respect it deserves.

THANKS For The Memories


The Twain Harte Amateur Neighborhood Kazoo Symphony (THANKS) gave its farewell performance this year after being an integral part of the Twain Harte Christmas Parade since the early 1990s.

"We decided it's time for our swan song," said Gary Sipperley, who founded the group with his wife, Sheri Barnett. "We want to quit while it's still fun."

The couple first attended the Twain Harte Parade in 1991.
