Lard Dog and the Band of Shy perform the Melissa & Doug series of free, Wednesday children’s concerts at Levitt Pavilion in downtown Westport. The Wednesday, July 25 concert runs from 7 to 8:15 p.m.
Lard Dog and his six-piece band invite you into their unique audio/visual world complete with catchy songs, interactive props, multi-media graphics, and a pretzel toss!
The Parents’ Choice Award winners have burst onto the family entertainment scene converting countless families to be fans of their quirky universe and highly infectious tunes.
The message of their show is all about living your best life — or as they encourage their followers to “slurp the noodle of life!” and people are all for it.
- “This show is a full-on sensory experience! Such a treat for the eyes and ears, with surprises popping from every direction. I was afraid to blink for fear I’d miss something!”— Mindy Thomas, program director at SiriusXM’s Kids Place Live
- “Truly one of the oddest and most compelling afternoons of unbridled silliness I may have ever experienced.” — Darren Critz, director of performing arts for Symphony Space in NYC
Presented as part of the Melissa & Doug Children’s Series! Every Wednesday during the Summer Season! Children are welcome to visit the Melissa & Doug Hospitality Tents and enjoy complimentary face-painting for kids (while supplies last)!
