Museum Hosts KindieFest, internationally acclaimed Sugar Free Allstars on August 2, 2011

The Woodlands (Texas) Children’s Museum is proud to host Kindiefest on Tuesday, August 2, featuring Sugar Free Allstars, a group that plays a variety of unusual New Orleans funk instrumentation with humor and high-energy.
“This is a rare treat for our community,” Angela Colton said, executive director for the Museum. “The Sugar Free Allstars are always on the road. They’ve toured Europe and nationally and I like that they have an educational aspect to their music. Kids are going to love this event.”
In spring 2010, the band released its second family music CD, “Funky Fresh and Sugar Free”, to rave reviews.  Some of the highlights since its release have been: a review on People Magazine’s website, a mention in Parents Magazine, a starred review in School Library Journal, a National Parenting Publication Awards (NAPPA) Gold Award and a second #1 hit on the Sirius-XM Satellite Radio Kid’s channel (the James Brown-influenced “Tiger In My Backyard”).  In addition, following this release SFA was one of twelve family music acts included in a photo essay on Time Magazine’s website featuring some of the “Kindie Rock” (indie rock for kids) genre’s top stars.

“I’m inviting everyone to come in and have some fun with us on Tuesday,” Colton said. “We will also be featuring author Lauri Rosen who wrote “Pixie and Trixie Bug” as part of the Museum’s ongoing Meet ‘n Greet the Authors program.”

The Woodlands Children’s Museum is located at 4775 W Panther Creek next to Sears Hardware in the Panther Creek Shopping Center. Museum hours are Mon-Sat, 10am-5pm and Sun, Noon – 5pm. Events are Free with Admission. For more information, call 281.465.0955 or go to their website:
