The Bazillions will be performing a Kids Koncert at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 15, at the Parkers Lake Stage. With years of indie-pop gigs under their belts, The Bazillions bring their music to the kindie rock stage with a well-honed live sound. But the shows have rapidly and organically grown into a full multimedia experience. Buckets of crayons and song-themed coloring sheets transform coffee shops and auditoriums into activity centers. After every show, children have the opportunity to have their drawings photographed for posting on The Bazillions’ web site. The band’s growing catalog of animated videos provides a lively backdrop for their musical performances. And the Marshalls’ natural rapport with kids keep the audience on the edge or up out of their seats, dancing to The Bazillions’ groovy beat!
