Join us for an unforgettable puppet workshop and family show with Grammy Award-winning and Emmy nominated entertainer, Tim Kubart, and his band, The Space Cadets. Tim’s mission in work and in life is to spread kindness and joy, and to encourage others to do the same.
His “indie pop for all ages” aims to entertain without excluding anyone, young or old. Tim and his songwriting partner Matt Puckett weave their own childhood memories through textured pop tunes with lyrics that bridge the gap between innocence and wisdom. In February 2016, Tim and his team were awarded the Grammy for “Best Children’s Album” for the togetherness-themed album, “Home.” His music is a celebration of the small moments in life, and his shows are always a dance party for all ages.
Tim and his band of Space Cadets have played at-capacity shows at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, Brooklyn Bowl, Lincoln Center, Symphony Space, The Kennedy Center, Chicago’s Old Town School of Folk, and the Smithsonian. They’ve also headlined the family stages at Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits.
Tim has worked on numerous family music projects, most notably “Sesame Street.” His first Sesame composition (written alongside long-time producer Dominic Fallacaro) is the introduction of Julia, the first muppet with autism. His debut children’s picture book “Oopsie-Do!” is being published by “HarperCollins” and will be on bookshelves in 2017.
Tim hosts, produces, and writes the only live morning show for preschoolers, Sunny Side Up, on NBCUniversal’s Sprout Channel. With his co-host Chica the Chicken, Tim sings songs, performs sketches, and celebrates everyday moments for a national audience of kids and their caregivers each day. “Sunny Side Up” earned an Emmy Nomination in 2016 for “Outstanding Children’s Series,” and is the winner of the 2016 Cynopsis Kids Imagination Award for “Best Preschool Series.”
