Kids Concerts: Justin Roberts and The Not Ready for Naptime Players
Enjoy our Kids Concert series, featuring a list of award-winning acts that will make your morning in the Park unforgettable. This week’s performance will be Justin Roberts on August 1st from 10-11am on the southern gravel across from Shake Shack.
Three-time GRAMMY Nominee, Justin Roberts is truly one of the & “all-stars” of the indie family music scene. He logs thousands of miles on the road each year, leading some to call him the hardest working man in children’s show business. With numerous national awards and recognition and a devoted fan base, Justin and The Not Ready for Naptime, Players dish out unexpectedly intelligent and whimsically rocking music for kids and their parents.
USA Today calls him “hands down the best songwriter in the genre” and his latest disc for families is titled Lemonade. “After the giant rock of Recess and the thrill of writing my first musical (Hansel & Gretel), I decided I wanted to return to the simplicity of my earliest recordings and capture the sound of folks playing together in a room, no electric guitars, no big drum set, more ukuleles and banjos, cardboard boxes and paint cans for percussion, a warm stand-up bass holding it all together, a few single notes on a piano, maybe the pluck of a cello, and a hand clap or two.”
Every Wednesday, from July 11th to August 15th, join us in the Park for Mad. Sq. Music: Kids Concerts, and enjoy your morning in the Park set to the tunes of award-winning musicians. This Program is free and open to the public, rain or shine.
