The Happy Crowd members, Hai Muradian, Kenny McSpadden, & Professor 'Smartie' Martie, present themes that educate, as well as entertain the audience. So, be a part of the crowd-The Happy Crowd!! The History of H.C. The Happy Crowd came about from the imaginations of Hai Muradian and Collie Coburn, two Southern California Musician/Songwriters,who met while recording & performing Rock & Roll in the 80's. Collie and his wife Michelle found themselves enjoying parenthood with their three children, and Hai was enjoying performing with a local group called 'Rockadaisical' that played 'rock 'n roll' for kids. They soon began to focus their song writing effort towards children with the goal of creating something that would be exciting for kids and not drive the parents crazy. It was also important for their music to encourage good values and be age-appropriate. The song writing proved to be a lot of fun for the two rockers, however The Happy Crowd was not complete until they got together with their good friend, Martie Echito, also known as Professor 'Smartie' Martie. Bringing his expertise as a producer and arranger the Prof. Has worked with many top artists in the music field, such as Steven Stills, Clifford T. Ward, Waves, Cecilio & Kapono, and L.A. DJ Rick Dees. When Collie decided to move his family to Washington, the decision was made to continue on with a new member, Kenny, who has been friends with the Professor for many years. Kenny is a natural on stage, and has gained the respect and praise of our new fans, as well as our long time fans, for his major contribution to the 'Crowd'. The Happy Crowd is now on their 16th year of bringing entertainment to young children and their families. They perform all over Southern California to a wide variety of audiences. From a small group of preschoolers, to an audience of 2000 at Rancho Cucamonga's Quake Stadium, The Happy Crowd truly enjoys what they do. 'Since our music is so interactive with the audience, we feel that we're the ones watching the show as we look out over all the smiling faces, singing and dancing along' says Professor 'Smartie' Martie.
