The Funky Bugs wishes to guarantee the reader that the following comments are genuine extracts taken from cards and letters collected since the Funky Bugs commenced in 2000.


Below is about 10% of the thankyous that I have received since 2000. I am humbled by all of your comments and it is indeed now my turn to say to you, THANK YOU!


I would just like to point out that in over 1000 shows I never received a compliment quite like the first one in the list. It is easily the most inspiring thing anybody has ever said to me after a performance.


Thanks for visiting,

Pete Raudaschl | Proprietor



"For most of our children it was like seeing the ocean for the first time."

Anne, Class Room Teacher, Bass Hill


"I was so impressed with the level of child involvement throughout the show. A number of families have requested contact details so they can purchase CDs as their kids are still talking about it. We invite a number of performers into our centre each year and the Funky bugs was a stand out. I would happily recommend the performance to others. Pete is a true children's entertainer "

Anette, Preschool Director, Concorde West


"I hope you don't mind but I've taken it upon myself to call the ABC to let them know about you. I get the feeling that your talent is really going to take you places. The kids have talked about nothing else since you left. Good luck on your way up the ladder."

Debbie, Preschool Director, Sylvania


"Thanks Pete. Everyone loved the show. Please call us next time you come to the ACT."

Beres, Preschool Director, Canberra


"Thanks for the CDs. We have the Funky Bugs playing loudly in our house every day. Arghh!"

Kim, Mother, Kingsford


"Just got back from a 3000km trip to Adelaide and back. My kids insisted we listen to your music the entire way there and back. Have to say, you should be very proud of your work, it's brilliant. Also have to say, if my husband hears the Funky Bugs one more time he might snap. Brisbane, here we come. Keep up the good work."

Michelle, Class Room Teacher, Ashcroft


"I was just going to put $20 in an envelope, but then I heard "The Adventures of Mum" and it brought a tear to my eye. You captured the whole idea of motherhood in your song. You are a sensational entertainer and we love The Funky Bugs!"

Christine, Mother, Bondi


"Thanks for the fantastic show at our preschool and congratulations on all of your original songs which are already ensuring my kids "put-their-seat-belts-on" and use their manners. I have to tell you I got a bit teary listening to The Adventures of Mum. We drove to the central Coast on the weekend and my 2 year old listened to it the entire way there and back. So did we. I thought I was going to go nuts."

Vicki, Mother, Engadine
