Mr. Jon & Friends is a super fun live act. Mr. Jon dresses quirky and acts silly; encouraging children and adults alike to make animal noises, clap their hands and stomp their feet. This was my first time seeing Mr. Jon but he’s played all around Frederick this year: Carroll Creek, C. Burr Artz Library & Baker Park’s Summer Concert Series to name a few.
My only experience in children’s based music before this was Dan Zanes and Caspar Babypants; both are listed as influences under Mr. Jon’s Facebook page.
Mr. Jon has great musical chops and a pleasant voice. His jokes and comfort in acting like a kid/total goofball are refreshing.
