Justin Roberts @ Boulder Theater

Justin Rogers- for the Grateful Web

Justin Roberts is truly one of the "all-stars" of the indie family music scene. He logs thousands of miles on the road each year, leading some to call him the hardest working man in children's show business. With national awards and recognition and a devoted fan base, Justin and his wonderfully named bandmates "The Not Ready for Naptime Players" dish out unexpectedly intelligent and whimsically rocking music for kids and their parents.

Justin's latest CD, Pop Fly, is filled with 11 high- energy pop hits spanning topics from a dandelion watching ballplayer to a girl's unusual hairstyle in which funky characters of all shapes and sizes take up residence. There are images of permission slips, first days, and grandmother's home cooking. Gently plucked piano strings, vintage synthesizers, tender trombones, pounding drums, and giant electric guitars emerge on this journey through the pop flys and pratfalls of childhood. It's yet another Justin Roberts home run filled with witty lyrics, sing-along choruses and touching insights. It continues a hot streak that started in the early 90s.

Over the years, Justin has put out an impressive string of award winning, critically acclaimed CDs. He has performed in front of millions of people on The Today Show and his song "Get Me Some Glasses" was featured on the World Series broadcast during a feature about ballplayers who wear glasses. He's garnered kudos and raves from national media including The New York Times, Newsweek, People Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, and The Chicago Tribune.
