The Hot concert of the week: Justin Roberts at Ravinia

Just found out about this, and we are super excited to go check it out-- Justin Roberts, local Chicago guy who is one of the kingpins of kindie music, is playing at Ravinia this weekend. And we are going!

For the last 20 years, Justin Roberts and his band The Not Ready for Naptime Players have traveled the globe, from Hong Kong to New York, and Miami to Seattle. Justin has performed in front of millions of people on The Today Show, he's been featured on Nick Jr. TV, and his song "Get Me Some Glasses" was on a World Series broadcast. He’s received two GRAMMY nominations, for Jungle Gym in 2010 and Recess in 2013. Recent appearances include performances at NYC's New Victory Theater, DC's National Geographic Live, LA's Getty Museum, Seattle's Moore Theater, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and much much more.

We saw Justin a couple of years ago in a bar setting, and I think Ravinia will be much more conducive to the family-friendly atmosphere that Justin excels in (and he was great at the bar.)

Looking at the literature, he's also getting ready to release his 13nth album for kids and their families  Entitled  Lemonade, it is Justin's 13th album for families, and it contains 12 new original songs.   Sounds like a lot of fun! PRE-ORDER LEMONADE ON AMAZON NOW
