Jiggle Jam

We attended Jiggle Jam in Kansas City this weekend and had a great time. Jiggle Jam is the only major festival focussed exclusively on children's music. It's amazing. We saw Recess Monkey (and got an interview for Lisa's podcast), Trout Fishing in America, Justin Roberts, They Might Be Giants, Brady Rymer, Dan Zanes, and many more. 

Lisa captured Dan Zanes in a signature jump in the photo above. (She posted a bunch of photos from the weekend on facebook.) What a showman. He took requests throughout his show, and got everyone dancing. He and his band paraded through the audience, singing, at the end of the last song, then stood in the sun signing autographs by the sales table.

Most of the bands were very accessible this way, and that made it a lot of fun. Jiggle Jam III is already in the works, so make your plans now!
