Family Concert Series The Rock and Roll Playhouse Announces Earth Day Show at The Vogel featuring Music of The Grateful Dead
Earth Day will take place on April 22, and that weekend The Rock and Roll Playhouse-–a family concert series where kids rock out to the classics—will celebrate Earth Day Weekend celebrating the music of The Grateful Dead with a full weekend of 15 concerts April 23 and 24 at venues across the country, including a show April 24 at The Vogel in Red Bank.
The Rock and Roll Playhouse will honor Earth Day with music by presenting the music of the Grateful Dead for Kids, a band who famously advocated for the well-being of our planet. The Rock and Roll Playhouse Band will perform the music at all stops, and families can expect jubilant dance parties filled with love, peace, and environmental awareness. A portion of all proceeds will go to the Grateful Dead’s official non-profit, Rex Foundation, which supports charitable organizations working to protect the Earth.
“We’re excited to bring families together across the country to celebrate Earth Day Weekend,” said Stephen Grybowski, Senior Director, The Rock and Roll Playhouse. “The Grateful Dead were not only a phenomenal band with classic songs, but they were environmentally aware—that’s a connection that makes these shows an even more special celebration for families as we inspire the next generation of young rockers.”
Established in 2013 at Brooklyn Bowl, the Playhouse is the brain child of Peter Shapiro, entrepreneur and co-owner of the Bowl and owner of The Capitol Theatre, and Amy Striem, a certified Early Childhood and Elementary teacher. Designed to create opportunities for families to experience live music together in historic venues, the program introduces children to the music of The Beatles, Fleetwood Mac, Phish, David Bowie, Prince, Aretha Franklin, Dave Matthews Band, Bruce Springsteen and more.
