Family Concert Series The Rock And Roll Playhouse Celebrates Mother’s Day WeekendWith Music Of The Beatles For Kids, May 7 & 8
Partnership with UNICEF Features 15 Concert Events Nationwide
May 2, 2022— The Rock and Roll Playhouse—a family concert series where kids and parents rock out to the classics—announces a special run of shows to honor and celebrate mothers. Taking place May 7 and 8 on Mother's Day Weekend, The Rock and Roll Playhouse plays the music of The Beatles for Kids. The shows will occur nationwide at 15 historic venues, including Antone’s (Austin, TX), Brooklyn Bowl (Las Vegas and Philadelphia), Cubby Bear (Chicago), Music Farm (Charleston, SC) and The Sinclair (Boston). A portion of the concert proceeds will benefit Unicef.
“Celebrating the amazing women who raise us---whether moms, grandmothers, or aunts---gives us a chance to let them know we love and appreciate them,” states Stephen Grybowski, Senior Director, The Rock and Roll Playhouse. “I can’t think of a more joyful experience than a family grooving to classics by The Beatles on a special day.”
A portion of the weekend’s sales will be donated to UNICEF.
Providing kids with early music exposure and encouraging creativity, The Rock and Roll Playhouse is introducing the next generation to timeless music by artists including The Beatles, Fleetwood Mac, Phish, David Bowie, Prince, Aretha Franklin, Dave Matthews Band, and more. The Playhouse was founded in 2013 at its flagship venue Brooklyn Bowl by 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 Rock and Roll Playhouse has presented hundreds of unforgettable shows nationwide.

About The Rock and Roll Playhouse
The Rock and Roll Playhouse is the largest national concert series for families where kids can “move, play and sing while listening to works from the classic-rock canon” (NY Times). The Rock and Roll Playhouse was founded in 2014 at its flagship venue, Brooklyn Bowl, by industry pioneer Peter Shapiro, and Amy Striem, a certified Early Childhood and Elementary teacher, who were looking to create opportunities for families to experience live music together in historic music venues. The Rock and Roll Playhouse has since performed to hundreds of thousands of kids and their families in over 42 venues across 30 cities, playing music from the most iconic musicians in history to inspire the next generation of children. Its core audience of kids under 10 explore their creativity dancing to live music from curated local bands, listening to stories and playing interactive activities. The program has donated to the Can’d Aid Foundation’s Tunes Programs, VH1 Save the Music Foundation, and Keep the Music Alive, as well as thousands of ticket donations to local school fundraisers and auctions around the country.
