Friday Night Family Fun hosts Babaloo and his one-man musical comedy act on Friday, June 22, 2012, at 6:30 p.m. at the Kansas City Public Library's Plaza Branch, 4801 Main St.
Babaloo, also known as Rob Compton, is a one-man musical comedy act for kids of all ages. Compton's performances have been described as "carefully controlled chaos." There's no 'criss-cross-applesauce or sit-still-and-zip-your-lip' stuff. Be prepared for lots of shouting, singing, dancing, stomping, magic and mayhem, bubble-popping and bucket-beating - whatever it takes to keep everyone energized and laughing!
Compton has been playing his music for children for almost 10 years and currently resides in St. Louis with his family. In 2008, St. Louis Magazine named Compton "Best Childrens' Entertainment"in their Best of St. Louis "A-List" issue. That same year The Children's Music Web Awards named his cd, Room For Everyone, "Best Recording for School Age Children ages 5-12."Babaloo plays over 300 shows a year from St. Louis to Aberquerque to Philadelphia, and has fans all over the world.
Compton will perform songs like I Lost My Pants in the Swimming Pool, Don't Pass the Gas, and Gorilla in the Middle of my Bedroom Floor. Children are encouraged sing along and participate in the interactive show.
Admission to the event is free. Please call 816.701.3407 or RSVP online .
