This Thursday’s Sycamore Park District Summer Concert Series has a double whammy, two family friendly bands! At 6pm is the Kid’s Fun Back To School Concert with Jeanie B! Mommy knows best they say, and what this Mommy knows best is making rockin’ kids music! Jeanie B! has been raising the roofs off schools, festivals and concert halls for nearly a decade. The secret is the sound. Combining irresistible rootsy rhythms with sometimes hilarious, sometimes poignant, and often educational lyrics, the Jeanie B! rock the ages — all ages, in fact— with the most finger-snappin’, hand-clappin’, toe-tappin tunes this side of Sun Records.

Then at 7pm: hear Istvan and his Imaginary Band. The Sycamore Park District welcomes back Istvan and his Imaginary band back to Sycamore after performing at Pumpkin Fest. When Istvan starts rocking kids can’t help but join in, sometimes on stage, while their moms and dads cheer them on and enjoy the original tunes, an irresistible mix of interactive rock ‘n’ roll, country, pop punk and sing-alongs that get heads bobbing. A longtime member of Chicago’s alternative music scene, Istvan started penning children’s tunes after the birth of his daughter, Evie — who often accompanies him on stage. In person, Istvan brings those songs to life and always tries to involve the crowd, whether it’s playing freeze dance mid song, inviting them up to sing along or having them ring out the rhythm on a tambourine.
