John Carlin & The Kids Music Underground

John Carlin & The Kids Music Underground


The Sly & the Family Stone of kids' music - high-energy, crowd-pleasing, heart-warming, and rockin'! A true 'family' band, where afterwards, the kids say, 'Whoa! that was so much fun!', and the parents look at eachother, kinda puzzled, and say, 'Damn, they're really good!'


John Carlin & The Kids Music Underground was recently voted 'one of the best kids' bands in NYC' (TimeOutNY Kids). Mixing high-energy indie rock with groovy world rhythms, and a sophisticated pop sensibility, John and the KMU are known for their highly interactive shows, where they get the crowd up and singing, dancing, clapping (and hopping and howling!).
Carlin, a sought-after early childhood music educator for the past decade, also has genuine indie cred (his old band toured with Radiohead and PJ Harvey, among others).
And with the advent of the KMU music/travel TV show and online children's university - see the upcoming Apr 2010 issue of TimeOutNY Kids - he's set to re-invent children's edutainment for the 21st century.
