The BeatBuds musical duo Jonathan Jonah and Matthew Shapiro (aka Jonny Jingles and Matty Maracas) are dedicated to exercising your child’s mind through music. They love to inspire young families to sing, dance, and play along.
The BeatBuds entertain, educate, and enrich young audiences with a refreshing array of original children’s songs that get the whole family singing, dancing, and laughing together, wherever they perform.
Jonathan Jonah and Matthew Shapiro, trained musicians, have shared a love for music since they were 6 years old and first started jamming together. While life took them down different paths, music brought them back together and they started jamming, exploring music, and organically writing songs together again. To entertain the kids they loved so dearly – Jonathan’s young nephews and Matthew’s daughter, the duo discovered a new audience for their music – children and their parents and formed The BeatBuds featuring “Jonny Jingles” and “Matty Maracas.”
The BeatBuds perform acoustically and play children’s music with a contemporary sound, familiar to adults. Their catchy tunes, rich both in spirit and message, touch upon a multitude of cultural and societal topics like Gravity, Sam the Garbage Man, and When the Rain Falls Down.
