From Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel:
The Pop Ups had young children and their families clapping, singing and dancing with delight at their show held on May 15 at Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel (TSTI) in South Orange. Brooklyn musicians Jason Rabinowitz and Jacob Stein, who have been nominated twice for a Grammy, brought along their hand-painted sets, cardboard props and puppets to entertain the youngsters with their special brand of musical mayhem.
Proceeds from the lively show will benefit the STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) Room at TSTI’s Iris Family Center for Early Childhood Education, where students can explore their inner engineers, artists, mathematicians, scientists, and technological tinkerers.
The Pop Ups play to sold-out audiences across the U.S. and have toured with Yo Gabba Gabba Live. The concert was sponsored by The Kate Elliott Team at Coldwell Banker in Maplewood and the Modern Family Center at Spence-Chapin.
