If you have noticed children watching attentively when music videos come on the Treehouse channel, you probably know about Vancouver Islanders Bobs and Lolo.  Their upbeat, engaging and educational songs are charming children around British Columbia and across the country. Robyn Hardy (Bobs) and Lorraine Pond (Lolo) are joined by their band as they encourage a love of the natural world, music, movement and make believe through action packed music such as Recycle With Me and I Love Bugs.   Their most recent audio CD Action Packed includes themes focused on analogies such as trains, superheroes, and adventure stories, and themes such as literacy, health, teamwork and friendship.   Their songs educate children about conservation issues related to their neighbourhood and world and encourage children to sing, dance and get up and move.

Residents of the Lower Mainland are in luck because Bobs and Lolo will be performing their action packed musical adventure concert this weekend  at the Roundhouse in Yaletown.  The venue is accessible by train, bus and car.  For those families who attend church on Sunday morning, you can attend a 9 AM service and still make the concert. If you live outside of the Lower Mainland do check out their CDs and related music videos.

As of Friday there were still plenty of tickets available, but contact the Roundhouse before you arrive as you need to pre-register.  Following the concert you will want to check out the playground just west of the Roundhouse where there is a large web-like climbing frame that children enjoy.

    Thank you for your comment. I just saw the following on their Twitter account:

    “Tickets are now on sale for our concert in Brampton, ON on November 7th! Weeeeee!! https://www2.brampton.ca/maxtix/home.html“.

    I will also let them know that you have a question for them. I hope you will be able to see them. They truly are world class (as the expression goes) children’s music performers.

    Bobs and Lolo’s team confirmed that they will be in Ontario for shows in Guelph (Oct 31), London (Nov 6) and Brampton (Nov 7). They haven’t yet lined up a date in Toronto but there might be a last minute possibility. They have also joined an arts showcase in Northern Ontario which will hopefully help them to arrange performance opportunities in Ontario for the upcoming year.

    Information about the dates they have so far is listed on their concert calendar for October and November.

    I hope one of those dates will work for your family.
