What People Are Saying

“Rob has come for 2 years to our 3-5 grade school, and both times were terrific.  We were even able to do some sharing of his message and music before and after the show with his cd’s.  A great blend of entertaining music, audience participation and character education.  Kindness Rules with Rob!”

-Karen Lemoine, School Counselor, Burns School

“Rob’s children’s music show is fun, entertaining, and sends a great message to kids and adults about kindness! The way he interacts with the crowd keeps the kids engaged, and his spontaneity is great! The music he plays is ‘contagious’, just like the name of his CD! Thank you for helping to spread kindness wherever you go!”

-Jeff Cardoza, School Counselor, Winthrop Grade School

“The best thing about his kid-oriented work is that it’s not always obviously kids’ music.”
