This Sunday March 19th, the Rock and Roll Playhouse family concert paid tribute to the music of the late Prince, joined by Adam and Paulo of the RRPH house band, Greg Gonzalez, Nic Travis, and Devin Snow, as well as Rock Bands for Kids’ Blue Lightning. Our talented house band kicked off the show with “Let’s Go Crazy” and followed with other Prince classics like “Kiss” and “Purple Rain”.

In true Rock and Roll Play House style, each song had a fun and playful nature, and the crowd danced and played along with parachutes, streamers, shakers and bells. Devin Snow prompted a wild dance party with his incredible on-stage moves, and Paolo even reimagined his tambourine as a steering wheel during “Little Red Corvette,” when he “drove” around the stage! At the end of the set, the audience was treated with Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode” as a special bonus song.

Following The Rock and Roll Playhouse house band, Rock Bands for Kids’ Blue Lightning sat in to play a selection of their favorite Prince songs, and dedicated their set to rock legend, Chuck Berry, who passed away over the weekend. The band brought a fun and youthful perspective with their performance that showed an approachable side to music for the little ones in the crowd. During their set they played “I Could Never Take the Place Of Your Man”, “7”, and “Raspberry Beret”.
