"Got kids? Love music? Then Rock-n-Romp is for you. Started in the Washington D.C. Rock-n-Romp is "a family friendly concert series showcasing fantastic local-area musicians and bands. Shows are held during the day in a relaxed, kid-safe environment. The volume might be low, but the music is designed for parents and kids both in mind. Kids enjoy the music, dance, or just enjoy the other activities available to them, and parents get the ever-so-rare opportunity to listen to great live music and enjoy a beer with other parents. Romps give parents who miss that aspect of their social life a chance to get out, enjoy some music that might be new to them, and expose their kids to great bands in a safe, friendly environment.
This show is all ages, but all children must be accompanied by an adult. Adults must also accompany a child to enter. Please ensure that no adult is responsible for accompanying more than three children. The child ticket is for ages 12 and younger
The Ballroom Thieves
In January 2012 The Ballroom Thieves broke into the Boston folk scene with a five-song, foot-stomping EP entitled The Devil & The Deep. Since their debut release the trio has captivated audiences with their unique instrumentation and dazzling three-part vocal harmonies. In the span of just one year they have performed at over 30 colleges nationwide, shared the stage with established acts such as Joe Fletcher and The Apache Relay, and played to sold-out crowds at the Lizard Lounge, Great Scott, and the historic Club Passim in Cambridge, MA.
The Ballroom Thieves consistently deliver inspiring live performances highlighted by the group's infectious passion and raw energy, which are unrivaled in the local folk music scene. The sonic diversity of their growing repertoire allows the band to entrance an intimate listening room one night and entertain a large festival crowd the next.
OldJack is a group of circumstance. While recording other bands, Lead singer/songwriter Dan “GoodWood” Nicklin would find himself requesting his clients and musician friends to help make a studio record. In the Winter of 2008 a show was offered and OldJack took its first line up. While the members have changed and the band has grown in numbers (they currently bring 8-9 people to the stage) the band is still developing it’s soul/rock sound. With two guitars, bass, drums, organ/keys, three female background singers, and a front man from yesterday, OldJack belts out their original material with lots of harmonies, big vocals, and guitar solos galore.
After February 2011's "Gone Before You Know" EP produced by Universal artist (and Boston's own!) Will Dailey, OldJack went on to blaze through the Rock 'n' Roll Rumble and came out as runners-up. The band is now working on its first full-length album.
