Wealthy Theatre presents Wonderfall with Jeff Roberts

From: http://www.grcmc.org

Saturday, October 9th, Doors at 10:30 am, Show starts at 11:00 am

Like a scene from "Groundhog Day," the event repeats itself over and over. Bass and drums pound out the beat in perfect unison. Bodies spring to their feet and rush the stage; jumping, dancing and bouncing off each other like bumper cars. The concertgoers behave like children. This should come as no surprise, because they are children, participating in the kiddie mosh pit found at nearly every Justin Roberts concert.

Justin Roberts is truly one of the "all-stars" of the indie family music scene. He logs thousands of miles on the road each year, leading some to call him the hardest working man in children's show business.

The parade starts at Westend Street, one block west of Covell Road, and will proceed west on Leonard to the Elk?s Lodge 48 (Highlands Golf Course).
