AADL Presents Kids Rock Series @ TOP: The Candy Band

Sunday June 23, 2013: 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm -- Top of the Park

Kids Rock@Top Concerts continue!! Do not miss this family-friendly concert with The Candy Band on the Rackham stage!

The Candy Band is a punk rock band designed specifically to appeal to children. It is composed of four Detroit area moms who were tired of what they deemed wimpy music for kids. They took a stand, and in 2003 formed The Candy Band, playing punk covers of nursery rhymes, movie themes and other children's favorites, along with original tunes. With influences like the Ramones and Iggy Pop, they quickly attracted attention from the Wall Street Journal, New York Post, The Times, Blender Magazine, XM Radio, Woman's Day, USA Today, People Magazine, the CBS Early Show, and the NBC Today Show. Their first album, Candy Band, was released in 2003. It was followed by More Candy in 2004, Lollipunk in 2005, Calling All Kids in 2007, and High Five in 2010.

So, fill up your sippy cup, fasten your seatbelts and put your fists in the air - The Candy Band wants to rock your world!

This event is the second in the Kids Rock Series@TOP - a Sunday series of concerts at Top of the Park, presented by AADL and the Summer Festival.
