For a quarter century, the ever-youthful, heck-no-I-don't-need-hair-dye singer/guitarist Jim Camacho has rocked South Florida's stages with a cheerful vigor and a melodic knack. His mother, the ever-present "Momma Camacho" nurtured the Goods -- the band Camacho led with his brother, John between 1987 and 1999 -- to the point that they signed several record deals on the strength of a song called "I'm Not Average."
The wellspring of optimism Mama Camacho instilled in Jim led him to a second career as a composer of kid's musicals. In the past two years, Camacho has shuttled back and forth between New York City and Miami in a whirlwind of kid's friendly entertainment activity.
In the Big Apple, Camacho collaborated on musical puppet shows for the Bronx Zoo with Sesame Street & Disney puppeteer/actor Noel MacNeal. MacNeal is best known for his Emmy-nominated portrayal of "Bear" on the Disney Channel show: Bear In The Big Blue House.More »
