We are the Black Cats! Our names are Maya (aka Baby cat), Vivienne (aka Ginger Mama cat), Gabby (aka Spicy Cat), and Rachel (aka Lazy Cat). We had special help making this album from Charlie (aka suspicious box cat), Julia (Sporty Cat), and Izaak (aka Scary Cat). We hope you enjoy our single, “Cats Hopes”. Written by the Black Cats. This song is about two mamma cats and two baby cats, and their hopes and dreams. Enjoy!

We were all gladiators in ancient Rome, we were sentenced to death, but then Leo was banging on the jail cell and made a rhythm that sounded cool, and the Romans liked it so they let us all out on the condition we’ll play music forever. Our music was so good, one time we broke the time-space continuum and ended up in 2018 AC in Wisconsin. Our music was remembered from back then and we were accepted as heroes. They’ll remember us for centuries! (In other words, check out their amazing Fine Arts Fest performance and download their live and studio recordings now!

These Beber veteran performers put together a brand new band, paying tribute to Oscar the Egg before launching into their latest hit for a capacity crowd at Crown Hall at BeberFest.
As discovered by Makor, there is a hairy goose named Charlie who lives at Beber Camp. It turns out he likes to make memes (mainly about Shrek) and likes to eat sunbutter. Who'd have thought?!
Our names are Penny and Emerson. We are from Deerfield and River Forest, IL. We both love to play banana grams. Our song is about 3BC and summer camp. We are both 9 years old and in 02 rice. We hope you enjoy our song!
We're the Flying Bananas! Our names our Lyric and Adam and we come from planet Poprica...we think. We LOVE cards. We wake up really early and play with rubiks cubes. Our song is a parody of "Pumped Up Kicks" by Foster the People. It is about cards and we hope you enjoy it!
We are MFC (Mukwonago Fried Chicken). We are from Mukwonago, Wisconsin. Our favorite food is fried chicken. Our names are Levi, Nate, Zues, Grody, George, Shay, Aaron, and Stein. Catch us headlining at Woodstock April 57th, 1969. Don’t forget to keep calm, fake a British accent, and eat fried chicken! Enjoy our music!
Some say that if you wander past the Field House during this hobby that you would truly feel the best of both worlds. We whole heartily agree with said statement.

Two lucky campers got to build two lucky cajons this year at Beber, one each session! The cajon is a Latin American percussion instrument, and very popular for campfire jams and such.
Pictured here is 2nd Session camper Spencer Gertz atop his creation, which features a different musical instrument on each surface, carved in with a Dremel tool and then painted.
Slappin' the bass is so yesterday, slappin' the cajon is where it's at!
We had a lot of fun in our very first Pro Tools/Logic 101 Hobby - dedicated to teaching campers how to record music on their home computers using equipment and software that they may already have, or which is very inexpensive.
Our goal was not to finish a song, persei, but we DID make some beats, which we then manipulated with special FX and plug-ins to make them very unique. So here's a reel of 6 beats, each made by one of our 6 talented Ramot campers - Gabi, Jack, Morrie, David, Izzy, and Oliver. Oh and below that is a drawing we made illustrating signal flow in a recording path. Good stuff!
Daniel saw a video of Queen one day and was inspired to create a parody of "We are the champions". He had just won the baseball championship and decided he needed a song to celebrate all his victory and his time at Beber camp. He had a golden trophy and he decided that he needed to tell everyone just how amazing Beber camp was and, at that moment, Lila just happened to walk by. Together they decided to write a tribute to the greatest song ever.
Two girls from the city of Chicago, who both loved music and Camp Beber. Came together to write one of the greatest parody mash up’s ever. They faced many challenges, including uncontrollable laughter, writers block and very loud noisy neighbors. Shayna is a dancer, singer and actress. She also plays the keyboard and sports! Danielle is a softball player, singer, and actress. She also plays the keyboard and other sports! They have been besties for 7 and a half years. They decided to do a mashup of “Little do you know” and “Thunder”.
Straight outta Makor, ready to take the camp by storm, The Dancing Cookies are the newest rock n roll sensation! Rock ain't easy, but here's an exclusive sneak peak at a recent rehearsal, playing the all-time classic "Smells Like Teen Spirit."
Stay tuned for more!
