JUNO Award-nominated children’s performers Splash ‘N Boots will play to a full house Feb. 20. The second in the series of free shows for children and their families during the cultural centre’s fifth anniversary, tickets for Splash ‘N Boots went quickly, a considerable step up from the 80 tickets sold during their 2012 visit. However, people without tickets will be given seats if any are available the day of the show. They are asked to arrive at 10:15 a.m. for potential seat availabilities.
Splash’N Boots appear on television screens across Canada on Treehouse TV’s The Big Yellow Boot daily, a show centred on the joy of music and dance. Over the past year, the group have more than 100 episodes (two seasons), which air up to six times daily in 8.3 million homes across the country.
Songs From the Boot, their ninth studio album is up for Children’s Album of the Year, the group’s third JUNO nomination.
Nick Adams, the Splash in Splash ‘N Boots said Morinville families can expect to sing and dance. “Our live concerts are solely focused on our audience to make it a completely interactive experience,” Adams said. “There are always surprises every show, so get ready, laugh, sing and dance.”
Whether it be is performing on the stage, in the studio, or for the TV camera, Adams said love is behind Splash ‘N Boots.
“We want to make that connection to every little fan we have,” he said. “This philosophy is applied to everything we do from songwriting, filming or performing live. Children can have such a challenge growing up in today’s world, full of so many moving parts and technology, that our hope is that we can bring the value of loving and caring for each other – and themselves.”
Splash ‘N Boots Morinville performance takes place at the Morinville Community Cultural Centre Feb. 20 at 11 a.m. For more information on the group visit www.splashnboots.com.
