In the United States, 14.5 percent of households struggle to put food on the table. More than one in four American children are at risk of hunger. More than one in five children live in households that struggle to put food on the table.

Howl at the Moon's piano players take the stage two at a time. The entertainers play for one hour and then yield the stage to two new players. At the changeover, all four piano players stay on stage for what is known as a "four-way." The four-way occurs at the end of each hour and lasts for two to three songs. This hourly encore allows the piano players to incorporate additional instruments (drums, guitar, and saxophone) into the performance. The four-way raises the energy of the room and provides a defined transition between the piano player shifts. Additionally, during every hour the Howl at the Moon
entertainers engage in "Showtime." During this act, all Howl service employees join in and lead the
audience through a choreographed routine to animated versions of popular tunes that include nostalgic TV shows and commercial jingles. The audience participation approaches 100% during Showtime and is enhanced by the high energy level of the live music.
PLEASE RSVP to David Tuckman, 2013 UNA-USA Chapter YP Co-Chair at 818-414-1637 to be
placed on the guest list for admission, and then bring flyer with you for admission.
