I’ve long admired the kindie music scene in towns like Philadelphia, PA, Wilmington, DE and Brooklyn, NY where there are established venues that have put on concert series for kids and families with a rotating program of artists who have achieved great things in the field of kids’ music. The Peanut Butter & Jams concert series at the World Cafe Live was an inspiration for a similar concept right here in northern New Jersey near where my family and I live. When I learned that Maxwell’s Tavern, a renowned local music venue, was re-opened, I got right to work proposing a kids-and-family concert series that we could call our own.
This is the Mini Music Mondays at Maxwell’s concert series. Set for Monday afternoons at 4PM, it’s timed to provide family fun after nap time and after school for preschoolers and kindergarteners. Even kids in early grade school will be thrilled with the level of musicianship and showmanship displayed by these great bands.
The first few shows of the series are now booked, and you can bring your family out to experience the fun, interactivity and variety of a concert series created with your needs in mind:
|Feb. 9||Michael Napolitano & Preschool of Rock||Get Tickets!|
|Feb. 16||Erin Lee and the Up Past Bedtime Band||Get Tickets!|
|Feb. 23||Jason Didner and the Jungle Gym Jam (that’s us!)||Get Tickets!|
I’m proud to announce that Hoboken Mommies/Moxy & Main will co-sponsor the event. Marnie at Hoboken Mommies brings lots of energy, ideas and moral support to the parenting community in and around Hoboken.
All shows start on Monday afternoons at 4:00. Doors open at 3:30. Dinner is available immediately following the show; families who buy tickets to the show get a 10% discount on a buffet of family-friendly food choices.
Tickets are a very affordable $10.50 per adult or $6.50 per child (age 1+) when ordered early (by the Saturday night before a Monday show). After the discount expires, tickets are $12 per adult; $8 per child (age 1+). Babies under 12 months are free. Get your discounted tickets at MiniMusicMondays.TicketLeap.com.
If you like the idea of rocking out with the kids in the legendary room where Nirvana, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and even Bruce Springsteen have performed, consider reserving Maxwell’s for a birthday party, communion party, Bar/Bat Mitzvah or whatever you can imagine.
