The best way to describe a Dave Kinnoin concert is in the words of those who have seen one: “inspired silliness,” “wild & wonderful,” “laughter,” “wacky, clever and bright,” “an unmistakable sound,” “heart and soul,” “genuine enthusiasm,” “gusto and guts,” “moves kids to action.”

Dave begins with a bang and keeps on poppin’ with boundless energy, decades of experience and a sparkling love for kids. The kids are not just watching the concert, they are part of the concert as Dave constantly and enthusiastically encourages all to join in. And like a favorite cookie, every concert has a surprise in the middle: Dave and the kids make up a brand-new song! Sometimes poignant, often hilarious, these spontaneous creations make us believe that there is something new under the sun. Kids – and their parents – have a rousing good time and get fired up to express themselves. Not a bad way to spend an hour.

Concerts available with Dave solo, Dave with a bass player, or Dave with his band, The Rhythm Riders.
