Families are invited to Dave Kinnoin’s children’s concert on Saturday, April 28, 2018 at 4:00 PM in the South Pasadena Public Library Community Room located at 1115 El Centro Street in South Pasadena. Dave is second in the “Library Carnegie Stage” offerings of the Eclectic Music Festival, which will feature performance venues throughout South Pasadena on April 28.
The best way to describe a Dave Kinnoin concert is in the words of those who have seen one: “inspired silliness,” “wild & wonderful,” “laughter,” “wacky, clever and bright,” “an unmistakable sound,” “heart and soul,” “genuine enthusiasm,” “gusto and guts,” “moves kids to action.” LA Parent Magazine notes “Dave connects instantly with his audience and sustains it by genuinely enjoying himself.”
Dave begins with a bang and keeps on poppin’ with boundless energy, decades of experience and a sparkling love for kids. The kids are not just watching the concert, they are part of the concert as Dave enthusiastically encourages all to join in throughout. And like a favorite cookie, every concert has a surprise in the middle: Dave and the kids make up a brand-new song! Sometimes poignant, often hilarious, these spontaneous creations make us believe that there is something new under the sun. Kids – and their parents – have a rousing good time and get fired up to express themselves.
