Live Show Synopsis:
#1 event for kids, Time Out NY! The guitar-wielding Captain Jam and his live band of musicians, storytellers and dancers take the stage and invite the audience to join a musical adventure around the globe - even giving children the chance to come up on stage, play a drum solo, or sing in a microphone. By the end of the show, imagination, live music, colorful costumes, and lots of audience interaction have helped Captain Jam complete the three-part FunikiJam mission - to have fun, to jam, and to learn about the world.
