The Rock and Roll Playhouse Announces Fall 2016 Season of "Rock & Roll For Kids" at Brooklyn Bowl
The Rock and Roll Playhouse has announced its fall season of "Rock & Roll For Kids" (schedule below), a children's-music-workshop series Sundays at Brooklyn Bowl. The series will include the Music of David Bowie, The Rolling Stones & Bruce Springsteen, as well as special performances by Lisa Loeb (9/11) and Melvin Seals and JGB (10/2).
"Rock & Roll For Kids" is designed to keep children moving, playing, and singing while simultaneously listening to classic tunes and teaching developmental milestones. Adults will love the selection of genres and popular-music hits, and all are encouraged to fully participate. Each workshop is 60 minutes long and is specifically designed for children ten and younger, but all family members are welcome. Unless otherwise noted, shows at Brooklyn Bowl open doors at noon and begin promptly at 12:15 PM each Sunday, and admission is $10. Children under one are free.

About Brooklyn Bowl:
Brooklyn Bowl is the ultimate night out, with its groundbreaking integration of premiere music, 16 lanes of bowling, a bar featuring locally crafted beers, and food by the acclaimed Blue Ribbon restaurant group. Located in the beautiful, 19th-century Hecla Iron Works building, the venue -- aka "rock and roll heaven" (Village Voice) -- boasts a sound system and amenities that "no other local rock club can offer" (The New York Times).
Wearing its homegrown values on its sleeve, Brooklyn Bowl is as committed to locally made products -- serving award-winning beer from the adjacent Brooklyn Brewery -- as it is to environmental sustainability -- it's the first L.E.E.D.-certified bowling alley in the world. And the food? "Epic," says Eater. In other words, Brooklyn Bowl's unprecedented combination of top-flight music, bowling, beer and food is "like nailing a spare on a four-ten split" (The New Yorker).
