Istvan has been a writer and performer of kids and family music for almost a decade. His songs were initially inspired by his daughter Evie and all the things they were experiencing as she grew. After some initial hesitation he played his first show and quickly realized how much he enjoyed sharing his songs with this new audience and how well suited his love of humor, the unexpected and theatricality were tailor made for this new stage.

His shows have fun at it's core but underneath the excitement little lessons are being taught, and all kinds of opportunities to participate in the show are being offered. Istvan isn't shy about the fact that he learns something new at every show and hopes kids and their families are inspired to be creative and kind from what they see and hear as well as have an awesome time.

Istvan was a pleasure to work with all the way through the process. The show was a bit hit, one of the biggest crowds we had at a storytime open house, and it was a fantastic show--one of my favorites. His songs are a lot of fun and really enjoyable for a wide-range of audiences and he connects really easily to his audience. He really hooked everyone from the very beginning and his show was very interactive throughout. I will definitely be bringing him back.'s picture

I hired Istvan for our big outdoor summer reading kick-off, and he was by far the best of the day's performer line-up. He engaged the kids in a high-energy, interactive show that had every child bouncing around dancing in glee. My personal favorite is his robot inspired hello song, but there were lots of humorous moments in which he challenged the kids to be goofy. His ability to effectively communicate with children was evident. Patrons are still talking about the show! Behind the scenes, he was professional, prompt, cordial and flexible. We'll definitely have him back with us in the future.
