Three teachers turned rocksters, Recess Monkey will instigate a family-friendly evening rock and roll dance party, Saturday, January 19, 7 pm, at Vashon Allied Arts.
 
The Seattle based, kid-centric trio, comprised of Drew Holloway (vocals, guitar), Jack Forman (vocals, bass) and Korum Bischoff (vocals. drums), earns high marks from national music critics from USA Today, People, Time Magazine and other media. Time Out New York recently wrote an article about the trio and rated the group number three on the top 25 list of music for kids nationwide.
 
Their Beatle-esque sound offers genre-hopping songs with themes about outer space and how to convince your parents to get a pet. A recent stint with Teatro Zinzanni resulted in a circus theme CD release, "In Tents" Eight CDs in eight years, and more in the works, Recess Monkey performs nationwide for kids and families.
 
Forman says, "As teachers and Indie musicians, we want kids to be exposed to quality music. We’re persistent and committed."
 
Tickets are $5 kids, VAA members/$8 general and available at Heron’s Nest, Vashon Bookshop, VAA, VashonAlliedArts.org, or by phone, 463.5131.
