    “Kindie” band Recess Monkey will perform at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Edmonds Center for the Arts.

Edmonds Center for the Arts plans to launch its new Family Series with a performance by the Seattle-based kid-friendly rockers Recess Monkey.
The show is set for 11 a.m. Saturday at the center, 410 Fourth Ave. N., in Edmonds. Tickets are $5 and are available from the box office at 425-275-9595, www.ec4arts.org or in person.
The magazine Time Out New York recently named Recess Monkey the No. 3 “kindie” band in America.
The band members are three teachers — Drew Holloway, Jack Forman and Korum Bischoff — who make kid music, an offshoot of their days in their classrooms. They have been praised across the country for singable, danceable songs that parents enjoy as much as their kids. Recess Monkey is known for its high-energy live shows and laugh-out-loud funny lyrics that capture the essence of being young.
“These guys are able to tap into elementary school so well that it’s like they never left,” said Mindy Thomas from SiriusXM’s Kids Place Live. “In this never-ending nationwide talent show of kid and family music, they are most definitely at the top.”
The new Family Series at Edmonds Center for the Arts focuses on engaging children from a young age in diverse and exciting arts experiences.
All children who attend the Recess Monkey concert will receive a surprise gift.
