Bug Out! with Karen K and her imaginary friends, the Jitterbugs: Bumble (the bee who doesn’t like to sting); Stinky (loves playing outside, refuses baths), Hop (working on his self control); and Slug Bug (needs a LOT of naps). 

Named one of the “Must-See Acts of 2015” and called “Power pop sheen that makes them fun for the whole family” by the Boston Globe, the Jitterbugs have quickly become a favorite among kids and kid-ults in Boston and beyond. Known for their engaging, high-energy shows packed with humor and amazingly catchy, well-crafted tunes, Karen K & the Jitterbugs has quickly become one of the most buzzed about kindie bands on the East Coast.

National recognition includes Parents Choice Awards; Best Kids Video of 2014 for their You Tube hit video “(I Woke Up in a) Fire Truck”; appearances on PBS-WGBH and CBS-New York; and radio play on stations across the country.  Jitterbugs Music Classes for kids 5 and under, created by Karen K, were recently named the Best Music Class in Massachusetts by Boston Parents Paper.
