Kiki Curtis (12) plays ukulele, electric guitar and acoustic guitar. Phoenix Curtis (10) plays ukulele, piano, guitar and bass. This talented family plays all these instruments plus they all sing!
In the tradition of family bands such as the Jackson 5, the Partridge Family and the Carpenters, The Curtis Family perform covers of funky classics as well as original compositions. Mama and Papa C (what they call their parents) aspire for their children to enter into the sciences because of its connection to music. The family believe music is everyone's birthright to use to express and have fun, but it also teaches mathematical relationships, develops critical thinking skills and teaches musicians to work independently as well as in groups. With all of that said, the C-note children are proving to be skilled musicians, vocalists and entertainers. Making their parents proud and entertaining huge stages like Americas Got Talent while getting a standing ovation from Simon Cowell.
