The Rock and Roll Playhouse—the family concert series where kids and parents rock out to the classics—has announced a special run of shows in celebration of fathers. Taking place June 18 and 19 on Father's Day and Juneteenth Weekend, The Rock and Roll Playhouse will be playing 19 concerts nationwide of the music of Bob Marley for Kids. This will be the playhouse’s biggest show return since pre-covid, occurring at 19 historic venues across North America, including their first ever shows in Orlando, FL (Hard Rock Live) and Los Angeles (Troubadour).
“The Rock and Roll Playhouse has established itself as the premier family-friendly national concert series and we are thrilled to welcome them to The Troubadour for their LA debut. Their incredible band will introduce the next generation to Bob Marley, spreading his messages of love, peace, freedom and unity, as we celebrate both Juneteenth and Father's Day.” states Jordan Anderson, Talent Buyer for the Troubadour.
The Rock and Roll Playhouse will also return to Helena, a suburb of Birmingham, Alabama, to celebrate the town’s second annual Family Day on June 18. Originally constructed around The Rock and Roll Playhouse headlining their town square, the band will play two 45 minutes sets of classic rock and southern jam.
A portion of the weekend’s sales will be donated to the Preservation Hall Foundation.
From The Beatles, Fleetwood Mac, Phish, David Bowie, Prince, Aretha Franklin, Dave Matthews Band and more, The Rock and Roll Playhouse is introducing the next generation to timeless music while providing kids with early music exposure and encouraging creativity. The Playhouse was founded in 2013 at its flagship venue Brooklyn Bowl by Peter Shapiro, entrepreneur and co-owner of the Bowl and owner of The Capitol Theatre, and Amy Striem, a certified Early Childhood and Elementary teacher. Designed to create opportunities for families to experience live music together in historic venues, The Rock and Roll Playhouse continues to unite families through music with hundreds of unforgettable shows nationwide.

About The Rock and Roll Playhouse
The Rock and Roll Playhouse is the largest national concert series for families where kids can “move, play and sing while listening to works from the classic-rock canon” (NY Times). The Rock and Roll Playhouse was founded in 2014 at its flagship venue, Brooklyn Bowl, by industry pioneer Peter Shapiro, and Amy Striem, a certified Early Childhood and Elementary teacher, who were looking to create opportunities for families to experience live music together in historic music venues. The Rock and Roll Playhouse has since performed to hundreds of thousands of kids and their families in over 42 venues across 30 cities, playing music from the most iconic musicians in history to inspire the next generation of children. Its core audience of kids under 10 explore their creativity dancing to live music from curated local bands, listening to stories and playing interactive activities. The program has donated to the Can’d Aid Foundation’s Tunes Programs, VH1 Save the Music Foundation, and Keep the Music Alive, as well as thousands of ticket donations to local school fundraisers and auctions around the country.
