LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jamarama Live! Kidsfest, the country’s first-ever national children’s music festival tour, will kick off the third leg of its debut season on October 7, 2006. Parents formerly accustomed to jamming at rock concerts were able to bring their families to this unique children’s musical experience when it debuted with Laurie Berkner and Dan Zanes in a series of sold-out shows on the east coast in October of 2005. Presented by Highland, LLC, Creative Artists Agency, MGR Entertainment, Inc. and Signatures Network, Inc., each concert features live musical performances and interactive attractions.
Jamarama Live! Kidsfest begins October 7, 2006 in New Brunswick, NJ and continues through December 2006. Jamarama Live! Kidsfest is very excited to have very special guests Sportacus and Stephanie of Nick Jr's hit TV show LazyTown. Also on tour is Ralph Covert (10/7-8, 10/14-15, 10/21-22, 11/25-26, 12/3), Milkshake (10/28, 10/29, 11/4-5, 11/11-12, 11/18-19, 12/2) and Buck Howdy (who will perform on the entire tour). Jamarama Live! Kidsfest is an annual event, with three separate touring cycles during the year.
Jamarama Live! Kidsfest offers entertainment that little ones and their parents can enjoy. Artists on the tour have been hailed as innovators on the children’s music scene, rapidly gaining fans across the age spectrum. Says Dana Millman-DuFine, Highland LLC co-president and producer of Jamarama Live! Kidsfest, “Usually family shows focus on a particular act or character. This is the first time anything like this has been attempted on a national scale. Jamarama Live! Kidsfest is a touring music festival that incorporates all kinds of children’s music and audience participation. It’s like an Ozzfest or Vans Warped Tour for kids. Warped has a t-shirt design tent; we’ve got a coloring floor!”
Highland LLC is a music management and live entertainment company created by Dana Millman-DuFine and David Codikow. The duo has co-created successful entities such as the Vans Warped Tour (the country’s longest-running rock festival) and created the Down From the Mountain Tour (2002 Bluegrass Tour of the Year).
