In October, the band brings its show to the EKU Center for the Arts for one performance, Sunday Oct. 4 at 3 p.m.
Called Rock ‘n’ Roll for the grade school set, the Imagination Movers are “prized by many parents for non-condescending lyrics and music that evokes the Beastie Boys or Red Hot Chili Peppers,” according to the N.Y. Times.
Guitarist Rich Collins, a dad like the other three members of the band, describes the show as “Red Hot Chili Peppers meets Blue Man Group meets Captain Kangaroo.”
The band’s recently released 10th album, “Licensed to Move,” is inspired by the Movers’ experience as parents. Over the years, songs have covered topics from diapers and healthy snacks to riding the bus to school and cutting in line.
“We know that when we play a show, people are going to have a good time. That’s the reward for us,” Collins said.
Tickets range in price from $15-$30 with discounted rates available for groups of 10 or more.
Tickets at the premium price include a special meet-and-greet party where you can chat with the band, take photos and get autographs.
