The dance floor filled with excited kids and their adults at the Saturday, March 4 KPBX Kids' Concert featuring the music of Floating Crowbar. The quartet is considered the region's  best and most authentic Irish band. The free Kids' Concert took place at the auditorium at Riverside Place (formerly the Masonic Center).

The quartet, made up of Rick Rubin, Don Thomsen, Morgan Andersen, and James Hunter, performed a lively mix of jigs, reels and horn pipes.

Three of the group performed at the 2015 KPBX Kids' Concert with rave reviews. The real star of the concert was the dancers on the auditorium floor. Kids happy to be out of the house wiggled, jumped, and circled in time to the music.

KPBX Kids' Concerts are free thanks in part to event donors Harvard Park Children's Learning Center North, Numerica Credit Union, Rocket Bakeries, and Pizza Pipeline.

Thanks also to Jaye Nordling and the staff of Riverside Place.
