If you've got a tiny music lover at home who's been jonesing to go to a real rock concert, this tot-friendly show is the perfect entry into the live music experience. The Fresh Beat Band are the stars of the Nick Jr. show of the same name about a group of best friends who go to music school together and love to sing and dance. They sing original pop songs, written for kids ages 2-5, that teach music appreciation and how to express your feelings through music, song and dance. Kiki (Yvette Gonzalez-Nacer), Shout (Thomas Hobson), Marina (Tara Perry) and Twist (Jon Beavers) will perform The Fresh Beat Band hits from seasons one, two and three of the show. Learn More

Nice music - both acts play with skill and professionalism, though not a great deal of energy. In fairness, there wasn't a lot for them to feed off of - the audience was tame until the last couple of tunes when people finally got up and danced in significant numbers. I reserve my highest rating for Baaba Maal, King Sunny Ade and Kanda Bongo Man whom I've seen in concert and put on a true spectacle. Can't beat the venue - the Osher JCC is a great spot to see a show.
Quotes & Highlights

A musical journey from moonlit nights in the villages of West Africa to urban highlife dance classics. The Nigerian Brothers open with the gentle harmonic and rhythmic traditional folk music followed by The West African Highlife Band reviving the ‘highlife’ dance classics, with a fusion of African and world music. Rich vocals, intertwining guitars, and exciting percussion make this group unbeatable!
Picnics are encouraged and there is an outdoor playground for kids and an art room.
