Splash’N Boots, the cutting-edge children’s entertainers, will be performing at Murphy's Community Centre on March 7 at 6:30 p.m.
Presented by Old Home Week, the two-time recipients of Canadian Children’s Group of the Year will take the stage on Friday, March 7, at 6:30 p.m.
With music videos airing daily across Canada on Treehouse TV, Splash'N Boots were staples at Old Home Week for several years. Recently filming a new TV pilot with special guest star, Fred Penner, the cutting-edge duo are thrilled to be returning to their old stomping grounds.
Tickets are $10 and available now by calling 629-6623 or visiting boxofficepei.com.
“We’re so excited to be coming back to Charlottetown this March,” says Taes (pronounced ‘Tess’), the group’s ‘Boots.’ “Some of our favourite memories from our career are from performing in P.E.I. so we can’t thank Old Home Week enough for making this happen.”
With the Juno Awards taking place March 24–30 in Winnipeg, Splash’N Boots’ recently nominated album, “Coconuts Don’t Fall Far From the Tree” – which shot up to number one on Bandcamp in its first week of being released – was written entirely with the help of their fans.
All song titles as well as the album’s name were suggested and chosen by Splash’N Boots fans via the group’s Facebook page. Fans even weighed in with suggestions for song lyrics throughout the writing process, making “Coconuts Don’t Fall Far From the Tree” the ultimate band/fan collaboration.
In December, Splash’N Boots filmed six six-minute episodes for a new children’s television pilot with Back Road Productions. Fred Penner, who starred in the beloved CBC hit “Fred Penner’s Place” in the ‘80s and ‘90s, guest starred as their helpful neighbour, “Fred”, in one of the episodes, and Splash’N Boots hope it becomes a recurring role for Penner. The episodes will be shopped to various networks in 2014.
No stranger to children’s music, live entertainment and videos (their infectious and hilarious videos air nationally on Treehouse TV), this TV pilot is a first for the duo.
For nearly a decade, Splash’N Boots have brought their award-winning, live shows to over 100,000 children worldwide. What began as a class project at Queens University has led to the release of seven CDs, 2 DVDs, and a cross-Canada filmed live tour with Treehouse TV.
From social media, to their online kitchen jams, to their philanthropy with organizations such as Sick Kids Hospital, Splash’N Boots’ brand extends far beyond the stage, and they continue with an undeniably unique and fresh approach to children’s entertainment.
