JamtonesJosh and the Jamtones is an exciting and hilarious new Boston-based interactive dance party kids band geared towards two- to ten-year-olds and parents of all ages! Labeled “Kindie Rock” by its fandom, the Jamtones are a kids-version musical mash-up of bands like Bob Marley, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Jack Johnson and the Muppets. The band's new record, "Jump Up!," (available now on iTunes, Amazon and CDBaby) is filled to bursting with hooky sing-alongs, zany skits and authentic roots/reggae jams played by some of Boston's very best session and live musicians.

Little Groove

Music Education for Children will be at Earth Fest. 2013. Children will play real instruments such as drums, shakers, and tambourines while they dance, sing, and groove to songs about playtime, sleeptime, trains and planes, rainbows, pigs, monkeys, butterflies, ducks, and dogs. Little Groove performs fun and educational music for children that adults will also enjoy. Children will enjoy being a part of the musical experience, using their bodies and voices to sing along to catchy songs that help them build important motor and social skills. It is going to be a really great show and we hope to see you there! Parents and caregivers are encouraged to join in the musical experience with their children.
