Event Description

When the United Nations asks Captain Jam to create a brand new Kids TV Show to promote global community, he invites the coolest, hippest, grooviest Agents of Jam from around the world to join him at the World Music Fair where they explore Mexico, Africa, Germany, Ireland, Arabia and more. It’s a unique experience for little ones, with original tunes and high energy dancing like a favorite Saturday morning cartoon come to life.

FunikiJam’s Baby LIkes to Rock! is designed to keep kids – and kids at heart – engaged in an atmosphere of learning and fun. FunikiJam’s Baby Likes to Rock! has it all: the magic of Aladdin, the rhythms of The Lion King, and the excitement of Hairspray. There is even a special area for kids to dance and play along with instruments and special props.

Written by and starring Brian Barrentine as Captain Jam with his Jam-mazing team of talented international artists, FunikiJam’s Baby Likes to Rock! is the crown jewel of FunikiJam’s Fall Season of music & movement programs which include weekly classes, music in the park, school programs, and birthday parties.

Warning: May cause dancing, laughing and singing in a variety of different languages. Side Effects may include relaxed parents, happy kids, and the chance to go on stage and jam along with your favorite Agents of Jam.

FunikiJam was founded by Brian Barrentine in 1999 to meet a growing demand for quality education and entertainment programs for young children and families. Starting with a weekly audience of just six families, the program quickly became so popular that Barrentine began training teachers, opening new locations, recording the music, and touring live shows to schools, music festivals and lofty venues like the Historic Ryman Auditorium and the Country Music Hall of Fame. Now based in NYC, FunikiJam has evolved into a landmark early childhood education and entertainment organization with an annual reach of over 70,000 patrons. Uniquely blending  Barrentine’s original rhymes, chants, songs and stories with indigenous music from around the world, FunikiJam’s mission is to empower global citizens to reach their highest potential through its trademark “music exploration for the next generation” classes, live shows, musical recordings, film production, and teacher training.

Lifelong artist and educator, Brian Barrentine is the creator, voice and face of FunikiJam World Music – winner of the 2016 Parent’s Choice Award for Best Music. Barrentine  written the Gymboree Music Program; served as Early Childhood Director at Brooklyn Conservatory.
