Splash N Boots are coming back to entertain kiddies

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Award winning Canadian entertainers will be back again this winter to make the kiddies giggle as part of Kids Music Fest.

Splash N Boots will make their fourth visit to Bermuda in November and will roll out their latest album, ‘Keeping it Green', for the first time internationally.

The Splash N Boots team of Nick Adams, as Splash, and Taes Leavitt, as Boots, have won numerous awards including the 2012 Canadian Children's Group of the Year. They also have several music videos circulating daily on children's television channels such as Treehouse.

“I am so excited to go back to Bermuda,” says Ms Leavitt. “We have made some great friends there over the years, and the hospitality combined with the beauty of the Island makes it one of our all time favourite places to go!”

Organiser O'Brian Roberts, of Bermuda Magic and Specialised Youth Arts Charity, said he has known the Splash N Boots duo for several years.

“Their latest album, their seventh, is called ‘Keeping it Green',” he said. “It is dedicated to teaching children the importance of conservation and sustainability. With all that is going on, environmentally, in Bermuda we thought that theme would go over very well.”

The group was last in Bermuda in 2011 and were received with great enthusiasm.

“Last time they came the children were very excited,” said Mr Roberts. “In their shows kids are allowed to be kids. They can get up and jump around. It's very interactive. As long as the children aren't putting themselves in danger they are allowed to express themselves. Not only the children but the parents have a good time.”

For their latest release, ‘Keeping It Green', Splash N Boots teamed up with leading Ottawa-based conservationist, Little Ray (director of Eastern Ontario's largest exotic animal rescue, Little Ray's Reptile Zoo). Dedicated to conservation, the new album features ten original songs that will keep children of all ages dancing to its infectious melodies, all while educating listeners about a variety of endangered species found across Canada. The conservation message can be used globally to assist in the efforts in Bermuda as well. Some of Bermuda's conservation organisations will be taking part in the event.

There will be two performances at the Earl Cameron Theatre at City Hall in Hamilton on November 9 at 2pm and 4.30pm. The show will include a special appearance by magician Gary Robinson. Tickets are $27 at www.bdatix.bm. For more information about Splash N Boots see their website at www.splashnboots.com.
