Welcome Uncle Devin,

Free Concert Begins at 11:00
The Uncle Devin Show is a live, interactive musical experience for children five and over by renowned drummer Devin Walker. The show cultivates the minds of children through percussion instruments and is a dynamic cross between Fat Albert and Schoolhouse Rock.

The Uncle Devin Show seeks to connect with children through the drum and the art of storytelling that will lead toward their personal, cultural and social development. This interactive show will allow children to participate individually or as an audience, with specially designed activities that includes clapping, dancing, singing and the African tradition of call and response.

The Uncle Devin Show has a mission to provide a high quality, live musical entertainment experience for children through the drum, both traditional and electronic, to convey universal principles of love.
