We are proud to present at the next Kids Corner Music Festival...

11am: Josh & Gab

Josh & Gab - Josh Verbanets and Gab Bonesso are two Pittsburgh-based writers, performers, educators, and public personalities. Their works have entertained and informed audiences of all ages on both a regional and national scale; together, Josh and Gab have teamed up to develop a unique and unforgettable musical bullying awareness program. The Josh and Gab Show spotlights the team's unique humor, various styles of songwriting and popular music, and personal experiences in an educational and heartfelt program aimed at students in both primary and secondary schools

12pm: Ratboy Jr.

Ratboy Jr. - A name like Ratboy Jr. may not immediately make you think of children’s music, but make no mistake, this band is fantastic! Based out of the musically rich New York's Hudson Valley, Ratboy Jr. consists of longtime friends Tim Sutton and Matt Senzatimore. On their second album, Champions of the Universe, co-produced with neighbor and Grammy award-winning producer Dean Jones, the duo kicks it up a notch from their debut, Smorgasboard, with a more polished sound and a few musical guests (Dean Jones, Dog On Fleas, Jason Sarubbi, Shane Kirsch, as well as Sutton’s wife, Cat, and their son, Elliot).

Plus FREE Balloon Twists!

What has become a staple at all of the Kids Corner Music Festival events, we will once again offer FREE balloon twist creations, courtesy of Kids Corner and WXPN-FM. Jack the Balloon Man has been performing his craft for over 20 years. Not content to make just "swords and hats," they use a multitude of balloons to create detailed works of art. The results are unique and amazing cartoon character parodies, a zoo of animals, and many interesting games and toys. Ever the showman, Jack and his friends keep our festival audiences entertained time and time again!

Yes, We Have Nibbles!

Along with great music World Cafe Live at The Queen will be offering a family-friendly buffet of snacks to keep the entire family fueled for fun throughout the event! Plus their full bar will be open, featuring water, juices, soda and adult beverages available for purchase throughout the event.
