SPR explored the roots of the Jazz Age at the November 18 KPBX Kids' Concert, held at the SFCC Music Auditorium on Saturday, November 18 at 1 p.m.  The hour-long concert featured Hot Club of Spokane reminiscing about the history of the Jazz Age.

Hot Club of Spokane consists of Inland Northwest musicians committed to the preservation of jazz, swing, and blues. There is no single "band;" leader Garrin Hertel has some 20 musicians play at various times in ensembles ranging from five to eight players and vocalists.

KPBX Kids' Concert: A SPARC Oktoberfest Oct. 7

What better way to start the fall than with an Oktoberfest! This free KPBX Kids Concert celebrated the dance and music of Bavaria at River Park Square on Oct. 7 2017 at 1 p.m. The hour-long free concert features the low brass quartet, SPARC.

Sometimes spelled “Octoberfest” this traditional German festival celebrates much more than the autumn harvest. It’s an explosion of traditional music, folk dancing, cultural expression, and (for adults) beer.

A marimba looks like a big wooden xylophone, with funky tubes coming down from the table-like surface. Experience how those notes pulse right through you at a free KPBX Kids' Concert, happening July 15 at 1 p.m. just west of Downtown Spokane. The outdoor concert takes place at the gazebo in Browne's Addition's Coeur d'Alene Park, at 2nd and Chestnut.

Coeurimba has performed for decades around the Northwest, showcasing traditional Zimbabwe and modern songs. The ten players move quickly between instruments, hammering away with mallets.
