Steve Roslonek ’93, known to families with young children as “SteveSongs” or  “Mr. Steve,” the co-host of the nationally broadcast PBS KIDS preschool destination, released his eighth album, Orangutan Van, in January.

Since its release, “Flat Stanley,” the first single from the new album, reached the number one spot on the Sirius/XM Radio Kids Place Live chart; “Song Without a Rhyme” is headed up the chart. The new album and some of its songs have been four years in the making.

To celebrate the release of Orangutan Van, SteveSongs will be touring around the country, along with Anand Nayak ’96 on electric guitar and vocals. Additionally, the two are teaming up with a third Wesleyan alumnus. On Sunday, Feb. 24 at 3 p.m. ET,  Roslonek and Nayak will play songs from Orangutan Van in their very first online concert. All proceeds will support Refuge Point, an organization created and run by Sasha Chanoff ’94, that provides lasting solutions for some of the world’s most vulnerable women, children and urban refugees. To join, purchase your tickets online here.
