Fam Jam - Tim Kubart & the Space Cadets

August 19, 2018 Cowles Commons

Join us for this free family-friendly event at Cowles Commons!

Brand New Fam Jam Event at Cowles Commons this summer. Fam Jam events will feature:

  • Children’s Pop Band on Stage: Tim Kubart and the Space Cadets
  • Arts Making & Activity Stations with community partners
  • Bounce Houses
  • Food Trucks

Tim tours the show nationally with his band, the "Space Cadets," and plays songs about familiar and iconic childhood experiences with indie flair. Songwriters Tim Kubart and Matt Puckett weave their own childhood memories through textured pop tunes that bridge the gap between innocence and wisdom in a way for listeners of all ages to appreciate and understand.

The show can always be adapted for your purpose and venue. From park bandshells to renowned theaters and museums to a stage at Lollapalooza and more, Tim's performance is an engaging, interactive set of original songs and stories. It's a dance party from beginning to end. The band is available in multiple configurations, from Tim and his tap-dancing sidekick to a full six-piece band. There's even room for optional brass, orchestra, and guest artists.
