We can’t wait to welcome Justin, who we brought to Champaign back in August of 2011, back to Central Illinois. So make your plans today to head out to Monticello and see one of the best children’s musicians in the country!

Just like a typical concert, fans at a Justin Roberts and the Not Ready for Naptime Players’ concert are jumping, dancing, and bouncing off each other in rhythm to the music. Unlike a typical concert, these fans are having a blast while their parents chuckle off to the side. Hopefully they have their cameras ready to catch the kiddie mosh pit found at nearly every Justin Roberts’ concert. Justin has performed in front of millions of people on The Today Show, he’s featured on Nick Jr. TV, and his song “Get Me Some Glasses” was featured on a World Series broadcast. He’s also garnered kudos and raves from national media including the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Newsweek, People, Entertainment Weekly, and the Chicago Tribune.
