National Library Week Concert: Candy Band
Tuesday April 14, 2009: 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
They're back! Candy Band- the famous Detroit rock group for kids- will return to AADL to perform a live concert. You have never heard â€˜The Alphabet Songâ€™ or â€˜Itâ€™s Your Birthdayâ€™ played like this! Candy Band is comprised of four Detroit area stay-at-home moms who were sick to death of â€œwhiny musicâ€ for kids; so in 2003, they formed the first kidâ€™s band that really rocks. With influences like the Ramones and Iggy Pop, they quickly attracted attention from The Wall Street Journal, the New York Post, the London Times, People Magazine, The Today Show and many other national and international media outlets. The band plays hard rocking versions of nursery rhymes, movie themes and other children's favorites. They were a smash when they appeared at AADL in September â€“ do not miss them this time around!
