Quotes & Highlights
“As a kids’ performer, Roberts is in a league of his own.” —Chicago Tribune
“On your feet fun and laugh-out-loud funny.” —People Magazine
Justin Roberts began his music career in the Minneapolis-based indie-rock band Pimentos for Gus. He decided to moonlight (during the day) as a Montessori preschool teacher.

note. Roberts’ music was soon being compared to everyone from Elvis
Costello and Fountains of Wayne to Paul Simon, ELO and Nick Lowe. By
2001, Roberts had hit the road full time, doing what he loves most: playing
music for appreciative crowds. Kiddie mosh pits broke out, word spread
and shows started selling out. He has played at such renowned venues
and festivals as NYC’s Symphony Space, D.C.’s National Geographic Live,
LA’s Getty Museum, Seattle’s Moore Theater, Lollapalooza and Chicago’s Ravinia.
Roberts has performed in front of millions of people on The Today Show,
he’s featured on Nick Jr. TV, and his song “Get Me Some Glasses” was
featured on a World Series broadcast. He’s also garnered kudos and raves
from national media including _The New York Times, Los Angeles Times,
Newsweek, People, Entertainment Weekly, USA Today_, NPR and the
