Overture Center’s Kids in the Rotunda is a series of free artistic programs designed for children and families which runs from the last weekend in September through April. This popular performing arts series on the Rotunda Stage offers a relaxed, kid-friendly environment in which to enjoy a diverse lineup of local and regional musicians, storytellers, jugglers, theater troupes, magicians and dancers. The programs run every Saturday at 9:30 am, 11 am and 1 pm (each performance lasts around 45 minutes). The 1 pm performances are sign language interpreted.
This week’s performers are The Cash Box Kings.
“The Cash Box Kings are dedicated to carrying on the spirit of the 1940’s and 50’s post-war blues sound. With performances throughout the United States, United Kingdom and Canada, this rockin’ blues band has gained international acclaim. The band showcases the music of blues legends such as Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf and Big Walter Horton, and have tailored their Rotunda performances to teaching children about this time-honored genre. The group rounds off their musical offerings with a dose of original music that captures the essence of the Memphis and Chicago blues sounds of the 40’s and 50’s. The Cash Box Kings give families an opportunity to dance, sing and even get up on stage to play harmonica. This be-bopping blues party will have the entire family on their feet!”
