New Brunswick, NJ (PRWEB) April 26, 2016
State Theatre presents Brady Rymer & The Little Band That Could – “Love Me for Who I Am” on Sunday, May 1, 2016 at 2pm. The Brady Rymer performance is part of the State Theatre’s inaugural Autism-Friendly Performances series. The performance will be held at the Crossroads Theatre on 7 Livingston Avenue, New Brunswick, NJ. Tickets are $25.
Two-time Grammy® Award nominee Brady Rymer and his band perform a rockin’ and rollin’ show featuring songs that celebrate children of all abilities. Dance and sing along with the group that NPR has called “the best-sounding band in children’s music.”
Grammy® Nominee Brady Rymer, toured and recorded with RCA roots-rock band From Good Homes for 13 years, sharing the stage with the likes of Bob Dylan, Dave Matthews, and the Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir, before parenthood expanded the scope of his music to include young and old alike.
When Rymer started a family, parenthood naturally expanded the scope of his music, and he started singing about his growing family and their new experiences. His son’s fascination with an expanding tummy after a hearty meal is captured in the song “Look At My Belly.” “Dilly Dally Daisy” is all about his daughter’s curiosity—the way she discovers something new and interesting around every corner.
Rymer debuted his homegrown songs at his children’s preschool, and went on to perform community concerts, eventually playing New York area venues such as Symphony Space, Celebrate Brooklyn, and the Getty Museum as Brady Rymer & The Little Band That Could. He has released seven albums, winning critical acclaim and national awards along the way. Rymer’s latest CD Love Me For Who I Am is a celebration of children of all abilities, inspired by the years he spent performing for and working with children on autism spectrum.
