“Music is a part of being human – it’s part of our nature, our fabric, our being,” says Jim. “And every person on the planet has rhythm. It starts with our heart beats and travels everywhere with us.”
Known for his approachable style and clever songs, Cosgrove is a nationally-recognized children’s entertainer who has delighted audiences for nearly two decades. He has toured throughout North America and Europe, including two performances at The White House Easter Egg Roll. Whether performing in a library, or festival, his high-energy, interactive shows are always a hit with audiences and concert organizers. During every performance, dozens of fans join Jim on stage for an impromptu jam session.
Jim is available solo, or with his trio band, The Hiccups for Libraries, Fairs, Festivals, Performing Arts Centers, Symphonies, and other Community Events. He also offers a motivational keynote presentation for businesses and educators, "Live Like A Child! Succeed Like A Child!"
It’s no exaggeration to say that librarians and their patrons love Mr. Stinky Feet! Some consider him a “library hero.” The feeling is mutual. His anthem “Rockin’ the Library” and his 80s-style power ballad “Library Ann” are huge hits with the bookworms. He’s shattered the silence in the stacks from Albuquerque to Arlington, from Rapid City to Reston, and they keep inviting him back.
Introduce children to the wonder and awe-inspiring beauty of a symphony orchestra experience with Mr. Stinky Feet. Jim’s songs have been arranged by Grammy-nominated arranger Don Hart, and the charts are available for any orchestra to perform with Jim and his band. This show debuted to a sold-out crowd in 2012 with the Kansas City Symphony at the world-class Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts.
The award-winning album “Mr. Stinky Feet’s Christmas” has become a holiday tradition for thousands of families. And the live concert version has become an annual favorite for libraries, churches, and theaters. Share in the joy of Jim’s adaptations of many of your favorite holiday classics, as well as his original songs like “Hark! It’s Harold the Angel” and “Prepare the Way.” It’s an interactive celebration that the whole family will enjoy.
