July 18, 2023 – The Brian Waite Band

The Brian Waite Band was born from the idea of creating live rock shows that thrill both parents and children alike. Founded in 2001 by Brian Waite (guitar), Todd Gray (drums) and Clif Swiggett (bass), the trio began touring the West Coast, and before they knew it, their music was being played all over the world. Twenty-two years and eight, critically-acclaimed albums later, their interactive shows have evolved into more than just children’s concerts. The Brian Waite Band’s live shows combine musical theater, imaginative storytelling, laughs and a great rock ‘n roll concert filled with original songs that take the whole family on a “Rock ‘n Roll Adventure”.

July 25, 2023 – The Harmonica Pocket

Silly and Sweet, The Harmonica Pocket’s kids music is for everyone from age zero to Grandma.

Their thoughtful, acoustics and chill music is perfect for today’s families with kids. Equal parts “uplifting,” “organic,” and “clever,” the “pure pop goodness” of The Harmonica Pocket has been called “the musical equivalent of a big red balloon.”

Harmonica Pocket shows are upbeat and festive, but not frenetic. Audiences are drawn in by the catchy, engaging songs and unexpected props. Humor, improvisation and play are generously sprinkled on top.

Shows incorporate a loop pedal to “build a band” with a big sound, right in front of the audience’s ears. Each instrument is played, one at a time, to create layers of sounds – acoustic guitars, bass, ukulele, wah-wah guitar solos, harmonicas, and vocal harmonies.
