Summerfest Family Theatre – Josh & The Jamtones
Josh & the Jamtones are not pushing an agenda of indoor voices, brushing your teeth or getting to bed on time.
The Boston-based outfit is an interactive/ultra-powered live band musical explosion guaranteed to get crowds of any age moving their bodies and singing along. Josh–backed by drummer/producer Pat Hanlin and their home-grown record label Jamhouse Records–manages to seamlessly blend roots/reggae/ska stylings, feel-good pop, folk punk, country ballads, New Orleans-style street music & family-friendly improv comedy all into a frenetic ball of kids music awesomeness, culminating in two critically-acclaimed family records: “Jump Up,” & the recently released “Bear Hunt!” album.
The Jamtones have opened for massively popular children’s band The Wiggles & performed live at notable events such as Life is Good Fest (Dave Matthews, Yo Gabba Gabba, the Roots), Kindiefest at the Brooklyn Academy of Music and Boston’s Earthfest.
