Heidi Swedberg and The Sukey Jump Band: Let’s PLAY!

Actress/musician/educator Heidi Swedberg (her film credits include Seinfeld, Galaxy Quest, Kindergarten Cop) loves to share the joy of music with people of all ages. She and her partner, Daniel Ward believe in the incredible power that being a music producer (not just passive consumer) can bring to all people. As Heidi says, “We all have a song in our soul to share.”

Musical partner Daniel Ward brings his incredible expertise on the strings to the band, giving the ukulele a new dimension. His skills as a flamenco guitarist and all-around great guitarist play against Heidi's storytelling skills. They play music from around the world, focusing on the folk traditions with a healthy helping of pop and jazz.  Heidi, Daniel, and an assortment of guest musicians perform concerts for all ages. Heidi also teaches ukulele workshops in and around Los Angeles and performs at ukulele festivals internationally. Heidi contributed to the 2012 Grammy-award winning album All About Bullies Big and Small, and released her first album Play in 2009. Her second all-ages music release (September 2013) is My Cup of Tea.

What Is a Sukey Jump? 

Heidi and her band create a Play Party where folks of all ages gather together to make fun by singing songs and moving their bodies. The smallest of children to the most revered of citizens can enjoy singing songs, playing instruments and dancing together with music that take us back to our roots, wherever we may be from.  As Heidi says of the shows, “Entertainment takes a back seat to fun. What's the difference? One is a product to be consumed and the other a production to participate in! Bring yourself, your little ones and your elders. We all can enjoy singing songs from around the world and moving together in an hour of the dazzling, unplugged song and dance we call life.”
