I Love You! Spiderman! Rock n’ Roll!

Kids Rock ‘n Roll with Uncle Rock at the Florence Civic Center

Wow! The Florence Civic Center was rockin’ on Saturday to a full house with Uncle Rock, at a mid-winter kids concert sponsored by Hilltown Families (click here to see photos). It was an excellent performance with new music from his third CD release, Uncle Rock U, plus many favorites from his past two CD’s. Thanks to all the folks that came out to celebrate Groundhogs Day with great music, and a special thanks to all the HF Volunteers for making the morning go so smoothly!

The title of this post , “I Love You! Spiderman! Rock n’ Roll!”, is an inside joke to families that were there on Saturday. Uncle Rock had me in stitches as he explained the different ways of exclaiming this same phrase in different sequences, all with variations of the same hand gesture. You had to be there – but just in case you weren’t, this one’s for you … Here is a short low-fi music video of “It’s Hot,” one of my favorite songs off of his new album:

    We’ll be playing an in-studio version of “Play Outside Today” this week on the show, too, and recorded a couple of other tracks with him that will air in coming weeks. This week’s show is already here:

    Our kids just loved this concert and we too laughed at Uncle Rock’s spiderman demo. Superheros are a big hit in our home these days.

    Thank you for bringing great kids music to western massachusetts Senna! We love your tuesday night show too.
