Join an interactive, funk-inspired journey with Michael & the Rockness Monsters. Hear quirky rhythmic melodies and rich instrumentation that brings people of all ages to their feet. Enjoy tunes to lift your spirits such as “SMILE” and “Rainbows” that speak about spreading happiness from their albums Funny Faces and recent release Monster’s Ball, along with other hits.

From Preschool of Rock founder Michael Napolitano comes Michael & The Rockness Monsters. New York Family calls their shows “an odyssey of imagination.” During his 10 year tenure as founder of Rockness Music, Michael wrote, produced, performed and recorded 5 records leaving him super tuned in to the landscape of children’s music. His 10 years as a member of the Blue Man Group Creative Team is evident in the slamming drum beats and eclectic instrumentation that will get your hips moving. Michael & the Rockness Monsters’ previous records, the self-titled debut (2016) and Funny Faces (2017) and recent fall release Monster’s Ball have garnered extensive praise from the music community.
