Rhythm & Words
Date: Saturday, June 8
Time: 9 a.m.–2 p.m.
Location: Burnsville Performing Arts Center, 12600 Nicollet Avenue, Burnsville, MN 55337

We’ve never attended the Rhythm and Words festival at Burnsville Performing Arts Center, and I really want to go this year.   There will be some great local bands, a little theater, several authors, some art and active play.

Main Stage
9:15–10 a.m.: The Bazillions.

The Bazillions are the perfect band for this festival.  They are a couple of local teachers — Adam and Kristin Marshall — who started writing music for their students and ended up forming this band.  There music is both fun and educational.  You can check some of it out here.

10:30–11:15 a.m.: The Okee Dokee Brothers.

What would a local children’s music festival be without the Grammy Award winning Okee Dokee Brothers?

11:45 am–12:30 p.m.: Paul Spring
1–1:45 p.m.: Gustafer Yellowgold

Black Box Theatre

Besides Family Fun Twin Cities, I spend my 9 to 5 at a day job pursuing my weird passion for calendars and organizing things as a legal secretary. When I get home I spend my time with my four kids, 10, 6, 4 and 1. My amazing husband is both a full-time musician and full-time stay-at-home dad. Together we run a small radio empire — SiaNet Radio — playing, promoting and enjoying the wide variety of local music and art in the Twin Cities. I juggle all this while writing about exploring the Twin Cities with kids. I couldn’t be happier.
