WINNER: Congratulations to mtclibn42

Symphony Space’s Just Kidding performances in February feature some of the hottest acts in kindie music: Shine and the Moonbeams, a new family favorite, The Okee Dokee Brothers, Recess Monkey and a gala Thalia Kids’ Book Club event celebrating one of the all-time classics of children’s literature, A Wrinkle in Time.

It’s an exciting month and we have exciting news.

Gustafer Yellowgold will be performing next month as well! We first were introduced to the insanely creative combination of catchy original songs accompanying beautifully animated on-screen illustrations of a sun creature named Gustafer Yellowgold and his earthly friends when the band performed at the Montclair Public Library back in March 2009. We interviewed Morgan Taylor, the creator and singer/songwriter of Gustafer and learned all about the band. Not only did my girls love the show and Gustafer — they each have a stuffed GY doll, but my husband and I loved it as well. When you actually like the music your kids like, it’s awesome. We listen to our Gustafer Yellowgold CDs a lot.

Normally accompanied by a full band, singer-songwriter Morgan Taylor takes Gustafer to a new level with this year’s annual Symphony Space concert. Bigger and better than ever before, this year’s performance includes Taylor’s full band and The Chelsea Symphony in the Gustafer Yellowgold Golden Heart Symphony. There’s no better way to get swept up into Gustafer’s world.

Thanks to the generosity of Symphony Space, we have a Family 4-pack of tickets and an Infinity Sock DVD/CD to give away to one lucky Barista Kids reader!

    My son would say, the robot from the planet Snurp – from the Knuffle Bunny book. He qualifies as both a robot and an alien.
