PJ Library Brings “Kindie Rock” to Hundreds at Kickoff Concert (September 14, 2014)
About the Event
Hundreds of music-loving children, parents and grandparents sang, danced, jumped and rocked with Josh & the Jamtones on Sunday afternoon, September 14, 2014 at the season kickoff concert hosted by PJ Library - South Palm Beach County. The energy stayed high as they young ones just kept moving, and calling out answers to Judaic questions in the very interactive family-friendly hour at Spanish River High School’s Countess de Hoernle Theater. The Boston-based, Berklee College of Music-trained Josh & the Jamtones fully lived up to their stellar reputation as PJ Library performers at the cutting edge of Kindie Rock.
Families from throughout the community also browsed an array of tables in the lobby showcasing local synagogues and their educational and membership opportunities. They also dropped their concert tickets into a free raffle for prizes including High Holiday tickets, synagogue memberships, religious school classes, children’s activities and gift certificates to local retailers.
Local PJ Library Chair Ilene Wohlgemuth and Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County President & CEO Matt Levin greeted the crowd and introduced the community’s rapidly growing PJ Library program.
