By creating unforgettable experiences for families while supporting a worthy cause, we can inspire a love for music and a passion for environmental activism in our children that will last a lifetime.”

Oceanic Global believes in the power of music and art to ignite emotion, bridge connection, and inspire action for the issues that impact us all. And, we value live music in particular for its ability to bring joy and build community within the environmental movement. We are so proud to be partnering with The Rock and Roll Playhouse in honor of Earth Day on this shared approach and to be celebrating as well helping to nurture the next generation’s relationship to our blue planet” says Natasha Berg, Board of Directors & Head of Communication, Oceanic Global.

From The Beatles, Fleetwood Mac, Phish, David Bowie, Prince, Aretha Franklin, Dave Matthews Band and more, The Rock and Roll Playhouse introduces the next generation to timeless music while providing kids with early music exposure and encouraging creativity. The Playhouse was founded in 2013 at its flagship venue Brooklyn Bowl by Peter Shapiro, entrepreneur and co-owner of the Bowl and owner of The Capitol Theatre, and Amy Striem, a certified Early Childhood and Elementary teacher. Designed to create opportunities for families to experience live music together in historic venues, The Rock and Roll Playhouse continues to unite families through music with hundreds of unforgettable shows nationwide as the largest national concert series for families where kids can “move, play and sing while listening to works from the classic-rock canon” (New York Times).
