Netcong, NJ - The Growing Stage – The Children’s Theatre of New Jersey, located in the Historic Palace Theatre on Route 183 in Netcong, New Jersey is proud to bring back Grammy Nominee Brady Rymer and The Little Band That Could on Sunday, June 29th at 1:00PM. Brady Rymer, a family music artist known for making music with a “rock and roll heart” (New York Times) will celebrate the CD release of his seventh album, Just Say Hi! at the concert.
Funded by a lively Kickstarter campaign, Just Say Hi! is an expansive and life-affirming musical experience, fueled by the joyful “Lil’ Wall of Sound.” Brady and his band, The Little Band That Could, play exuberantly with accordions, mandolin, acoustic guitar, keyboards, bass, drums, the occasional saxophone along with their joyful voices singing together. As NPR’s All Things Considered notes, this “might just be the best sounding band in children’s music.” Each track is its own bright and fully realized world, musically rich from the contributions of the multi-talented band members, Odetta’s musical director and players from Bruce Springsteen’s Seeger Sessions rhythm section among them.
Brady Rymer is one of the top talents in the independent family music scene today. Originally with the RCA Records band From Good Homes, Rymer ventured into family music with the CD Good Morning, Gus in 2000. Since then, he has released five other CDs, including the 2008 GRAMMY-Award nominated Here Comes Brady Rymer and the Little Band That Could. Rymer’s rootsy, accordion-laced pop and rock music regularly wins critical acclaim and national awards. His “Jump Up” was included in the album Songs for a Healthier America, a compilation of songs that is part of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign. He has also been a featured performer with ASHA’s Listen to Your Buds campaign to promote hearing protection with kids. His last release, Love Me for Who I Am, inspired by children with special needs won a 2011 Parents’ Choice Gold award and national acclaim from parents, educators and critics alike. Together with his Little Band That Could, Rymer creates rockin’ live music for kids and families across the country. Brady also plays bass guitar with the Laurie Berkner Band. Rymer lives on Long Island with his wife and two children. For the latest Brady Rymer news and tour schedule, visit www.bradyrymer.com.
