Another Electrifying Adventure

A couple weeks ago, a representative from the New York Hall of Science  contacted me after seeing Isabella’s article in the newspaper.  It happens that another member of the Electric Company, Shock who plays the resident beatboxer, was making an appearance at the hall and they were offering to have Isabella come and meet him.  Of course, we jumped at the chance.

When we arrived for the show, we were immediately treated as VIPs with free passes and front row seats.  After the show, there was a member’s only meet and greet with Shock.  But even though we didn’t have a membership, they did us one better with a private meeting with him!  We spent a few minutes chatting with him as he added his autograph to the board that contained the autographs of Lisa, Hector, and Jessica, and took a few pictures.  My favorite part of the visit was when Nathaniel beatboxed with him!  There’s a video below and although you can’t hear Nathaniel on the video, he was definitely holding his own with Shock!

Thanks again to the New York Hall of Science for making this trip possible and to Shock and his crew for taking a few minutes out of his day to bring this special treat to our family.  If you have a minute, check out his website and see some of the amazing sounds that come out of his mouth!
