Fresh Beat Band
Drums. Pumpkins. Swimming pools. Pizza. These are just some of the things that can send the four overgrown kids of Nick Jr.’s Fresh Beat Band—and with them, their preschool audience—into transports of wild enthusiasm. Naturally enough, their excitement about the stuff that 4-year-olds’ dreams are made of spills over into ultra-energetic song-and-dance numbers. On a national tour, the band takes their dayglo spectacle from screen to stage, backed by colorful, pulsating productions.
In concert, the musical quartet—Kiki, Shout, Marina, and Twist—jam on guitars, drums, keys, and a DJ deck, often breaking into synchronized dance routines to accompany hits from their show’s first three seasons. “Great Day” bounces along to glass-half-full beats, and “Reach for the Sky” encourages tykes to aspire to dreams even bigger than emptying out an entire cabinet of tupperware. In educational asides—delivered in a style that’s perky but, fortunately for parents, not cloying or condescending—they show kids how the basic materials of movement and music can be used to make a danceable beat or express emotion.
The band’s sold-out shows have caught the attention of the New York Times, who declared the experience “Beatlemania for tots.” USA Today called them “one of the hottest pop acts on the road this year,” and the Daily Beast reported on the concert’s decibel reading by noting that the group “has the juice-box set squealing” while being “poised to become known outside of its target demographic.”
Peabody Opera House
Before it was known as the Peabody Opera House, the venue on Market Street lent its stage to history. Harry S. Truman delivered the final speech of his 1948 campaign there, sealing his presidential reelection; the Rat Pack played a benefit for a halfway house there in 1965; and, throughout the '70s and '80s, such legends as David Bowie and Billy Joel appeared under its intricate canopy. But, come 1991, the opera house almost became history itself when its doors closed. Two decades would pass before it would reopen, rechristened as the Peabody Opera House.
Even after such an extended dormancy, the venue maintains the grandeur that attracted so many stars and prompted exclamations such as "Wowzers!" and "This place flips my lid!" Intricate, gilded carvings ring the stage and balconies, accenting the openings that run along the theater's sides. Meanwhile, a great blue dome bubbles up from the ceiling's center, etched with the outline of the house's patron bear.
