Forget the nap!


Justin Roberts has become an Ark family favorite! Justin and his band, the Not Ready for Naptime Players, dish out intelligent and whimsically rocking music for kids and their parents. A Montessori preschool teacher, Justin began writing songs for a new generation of fans: his students. He was soon being compared to everyone from Elvis Costello to Fountains of Wayne and Nick Lowe. It was clear that Justin had figured out the elusive trick of appealing to both kids and adults. Kiddie mosh pits broke out, word spread, and shows started selling out—at renowned venues like New York's Symphony Space and even Lollapalooza. Time Out NY Kids named Justin's "Meltdown" CD to its list of the best children's music of the last 30 years, and he comes to town with a new album, "Lemonade." Time to hit the playground with the man who's been called "the Paul McCartney of children's music"!
