Upbeat Originals with Jazz Appeal

Catchy tunes with traces of punk and new wave influences. Comparable to proto-punker Jonathan Richman.” – Time Out Chicago Kids

Dave and the Space Cadets create a mix of whimsical, upbeat originals that have lots to teach.  Overnight, Dave was transformed into a music hero with a positive message – not to mention a cool cape. David has an organic way of connecting with children and adults alike.

After five years working with wee ones, he released his first kids’ album, Mr. Dave. A crowd favorite, with traditional songs and simple interactive movements for toddlers.  With “Gui-tar” in hand, Dave has just completed his second album for children, It’s Mr. Dave, a collection of new classics that are sure to delight. Some even claim they are downright super. Y'all are invited to come sing along.

From Mr. Dave's days as a winning Star Search child contestant to his packed 56 Hope Road concerts all over town, Dave has been a successful professional musician since he was a kid himself.  His musical prowess has earned him accolades from rock stars to industry media.  But because Dave is just a big kid at heart, it’s no wonder that he has made his life’s passion and work entertaining kids with his infectious enthusiasm and musical talent.Mr. Dave has an organic way of connecting with children & adults alike.  His simple approach to writing & performing introduces them to the world of music in an uninhibited way.  It is pure magic.

a Rafflecopter giveaway


"The aptly named BOOGERS perform their hard-driving, chord-driven rock n' roll for the youngsters in a style reminiscent of New York Punksters The Ramones. Of course, their songs are crafted with age-appropriate material. The only sedation going on here is an after-show nap." – Chicago Tribune
For them, it's not just about putting a different beat to the music — it's about interpreting the songs…adding new lyrics…whole new sections and melodies…to better communicate their implicit message and create something familiar to kids but completely original and fun.
