David Grover (The Jerry Garcia of the Elementary School Set) at The Unicorn Dec. 28-29

From our News Desk: The Berkshire Theatre Group (BTG) has added another family event for the week between Christmas and New Year’s. David Grover and Grover’s Gang will appear with The BTG Children’s Chorus at The Unicorn Theatre, 6 East St. Stockbridge, MA on Wednesday, December 28 at 7pm and Thursday, December 29 at 11am. David Grover’s unique children’s show is described as the perfect Holiday event for the whole family.

Of course, this groovin’ Grover is not the madcap muppet — we’re talking about musician David Grover and his band, the aptly titled Grover’s Gang, who will delight and entertain your own families moppets this month.

David Grover spent many years as Arlo Guthrie’s lead guitar and band leader playing for adults, but it wasn’t until he had a daughter that he found his true calling, playing for children and families.

Grover’s Gang consists of David Grover on guitar & vocals, Kathy Jo Grover on bass & vocals, Charlie Tokarz on saxophones and woodwinds and Joe Torra on Keyboard. David Grover and Grover’s Gang have performed at the White House, opened the Goodwill Games, appeared on The Today Show and performed with the Detroit Symphony for their Youth Series. They have recently played for the delegates of the United Nations who gleefully did the hand motions of Turn the World Around at the kickoff of International Year of Clean Water.

With nearly twenty albums under his belt, David Grover, called, “The Jerry Garcia of the Elementary School set,” has been compared to Mr. Rogers, Paul Simon, James Taylor and Raffi, earning countless awards including a Grammy nomination and Artist of the Year. Grover’s music delivers a positive and timeless message, making him irresistible across the generations.

The musicians in Grover’s Gang are not only incredibly talented; they are also extraordinary human beings. Children and families of all walks of life enjoy Grover’s music. In turn, David considers them his friends and they serve as testament to his ongoing commitment to making quality music accessible to all children.
