Kidrockers is back at World Cafe Live on February 1st with Philadelphia band Grandchildren as part of the Peanut Butter and Jams series. At Kidrockers, bands perform original songs in a way that is both authentic and kid-friendly. Host Seth Herzog (Jimmy Fallon, Sweet) brings hilarity and interactivity to these all ages events. “We love to hear great new music — and so do our kids.” says Kidrockers founder Beth Lorge. “We want to create an opportunity for kids their parents and grandparents! to discover artists and get to see them play live in a fun, safe and comfortable environment.”
Grandchildren is an electro-acoustic orchestral pop band from Philadelphia. Originating as a recording project that fused folk songs with sampled beats, the band evolved into a small orchestra known for its high energy live performances featuring multi-instrumentalist swapping. ”Grandchildren continue to evolve and mature their sound, while finding focus in their songwriting, arrangements, and studio performances.” The Key / WXPN ”With Golden Age, Grandchildren displays the power and strength that thoughtfully creative pop music can carry. It’s both an album that digs deep into their capable musical arsenal and still maintains a highly energetic cruising flow.” Deli Magazine, Philadelphia (Album of the Month).
