Secret Agent 23 Skidoo Performance
Grammy-winning hip hop artist Secret Agent 23 Skidoo combines the excitement of hip hop with the magical world of childhood. With sophisticated instrumental funk and positive, witty wordplay, he has earned a loyal national following. Infinity Plus One takes kids into outer space with “Glimmer” about a moth who flies to the moon, and “Tastes Like Space” is an exploration of the intergalactic destiny of Carl Sagan’s famous Gold Record. 23 Skidoo received a Grammy nomination in 2015 for The Perfect Quirk, a classic hip hop album spiced with Motown, reggae, club thump, blues and the occasional pirate shanty.
