Half Moon Jug Band

"The Half Moon Jug Band is a three-man mob of musical 
desperadoes waging a daily battle against the humdrum forces 
of boredom and inaction. They fend off the blahs with 
banjos, kazoos, guitars saxophones and silliness. 
They want to make you dance and sing along at the top of your lungs."

The Crown Vic's

"The Crown Vics are America's favorite 
rock'n'roll dance band.  They have been described

that will fire up any dance floor or concert stage!"

July 10
"Effervescent, energetic, entertaining….all of these words 
describe Judy Pancoast; a singer, songwriter and recording artist 
who radiates joy in her music. She crafts clever songs 
with infectious melodies that delight the young and the young at heart, 
as evidenced by the 2011 Grammy Award nomination for Best Children’s Album 
for her one-of-a-kind CD, Weird Things Are Everywhere!"

July 31

"Steve Corning began performing professionally at age 17 and has since 
brought his unique brand of variety arts and off-beat comedy to theaters 
and resorts across the country, and even internationally on Disney Cruise Line. 
Steve presents a variety show of ultimate proportions, 
featuring fast-paced juggling routines, mind-blowing escape artistry, 
comedy magic, contortion, balancing, LED light manipulation, 
and nearly endless amazing stunts, all mixed with a hearty dose of 
off-the-cuff comedy. If you're looking for non-stop entertainment 
and ​laughs for the ​whole family, ​this show has it all!"

August 14

"The Legend of the Banana Kid"
 
"Little Chucky heads to the Wild West to outwit outlaws 
in this cowboy adventure!  
With a fistful of bananas, Chucky rides into town on his trusty goat 
for a showdown with Big Bad Bart and his gang of bandits.  
(*please note that there are no guns in the show).
'The Legend of the Banana Kid' features 20 of our hand-crafted 
glove, mouth and rod puppets, and a slew of flying and twirling styrofoam bananas.

Length of show: approx. 45 minutes
Recommended audience: ages 4 and up"

Family nights at the library, showcase children’s performers, and we like to give the performers a great audience. In order to help us with this, please arrive promptly, because all shows will begin on time.  Although we leave space down front for the children to sit, if you do happen to arrive after the performance has begun, please don’t send your children to that area, as it disrupts the program, as well as the attention of the children who are already there. We will begin these shows promptly at 6:30 pm. Thank you for your help.
