Pobba, Live!




Pobba is now essentially retired from actively performing. The CD continues to delight the 3-7 year old crowd and charm parents and grandparents alike. Pobba now tours the world promoting his Cheesie Mack books aimed at 8-11 year old readers.

When the the Pobba show was active, he was often in the news. See below:

9.26.06 :: Pobba donates free concerts in our nation's capital. If his travel schedule permits, Pobba will do a free show (you pay expenses only!) for your school or benefit. Contact Pobba.

1.14.06 :: Pobba leads a Sing-Along at the California Kindergarten Association’s annual conference. At the Santa Clara Convention Center, hundreds of teachers learn to sing about drippy PB&J sandwiches, why some kids never go to sleep, and what to do when you find marshmallows glued to your shoe! The CKA facilitates quality education for kindergarteners by promoting early childhood education and advancing the professionalism of kindergarten and other early childhood educators. Pobba’s Teacher’s Guide suggests ways to use the tunes in class. Musical fun! ...with emphasis on social and academic standards as a subtle plus.

7.27.05 :: At last! All of the songs on Pobba's My ‘Magination CD are licensed for digital download. Click here to find out how and where.

2.03.05 :: The world came together to help victims of the tsunami. The effort continues. Pobba is donating two concerts and $5 for each CD sold at the shows. See show details, schedule your own benefit -- contact Pobba.

9.14.04 :: On vacation in Montana, Pobba is strolling through the tiny town of East Glacier Park when he spots a teacher coming out of a school at 4 p.m. Moments later Pobba is chatting with the principal, and the next morning at 9 a.m. he is singing for all the kids K-5 and a few 7th graders (Alex, Kelsey, Connor, Derek, and Josh) who love music and performance. Very small school…very small crowd (only 21 kids)…but very big enthusiasm!

2-21-03, Redwood City, CA :: "Pobba Among the Cub Scouts"
High energy at Pack 61's Blue and Gold Dinner. Kids compared Pobba's outrageous "I'm Making Dinner" recipes to Mom's potluck offerings. Cubs Scouts shouted that they'd eat all the "Marshmallows" Pobba could sing about, no matter how yukky! And Pobba realized that Cub Scouts are the unchanged (thank heaven!) since his last Blue and Gold Dinner 47 years ago!

11-21-02, New York :: "Pobba Lights up Lives in NYC!"
Two shows at FAO Schwarz for the 14th Annual "Light Up a Life" benefit for New York Presbyterian Hospital/Cornell Medical College, a singing visit to the pediatrics ward at the hospital, and high-spirited, fun-filled performances at The Spence School and St. Bernard's School... Wow! Pobba (and the kids!) had a great time in The Big Apple.

10-31-02, San Francisco :: Absolutely no one was scared when Pobba participated in the annual Halloween Heroes event at San Francisco's FAO Schwarz!

Along with dozens of local sports and media stars, Pobba greeted and entertained over 500 kids and their parents in an evening of fun organized by the Wender Weis Foundation for Children for the benefit of the Junior Giants. Pobba donated hundreds of specially recorded CDs for the occasion.

8-17-02 » Pobba (a.k.a. Steve Cotler) and the MY 'MAGINATION CD was featured in the August 2002 Harvard Business School Bulletin (pg 43).
