LA is a haven for arts and entertainment, so it should come as no surprise that there are dozens of amazing local bands just for kids—and for their music savvy parents. You shouldn’t have to choose between listening to the  Frozen soundtrack for 2 years straight and precociously playlisting pre-teen pop to tiny tots. So don’t! Check out our favorite stars of the local scene; we guarantee you’ll want to jam to these LA kids bands just as much as your mini DJs.


Jazzy Ash

Bringing the Big Easy to the big blue Pacific, Jazzy Ash will have your kids swinging and jiving like they've eaten one too many sugar-dusted beignets. This LA kindie queen lends her brassy voice to fun ditties about cleaning up and keeping your hands to yourself. You'll be reminiscing about that brief summer you spent swing dancing at the Derby, while you cut a rug with your kids on the living room floor.

Note: In addition to their awesome albums, these bands can all be found playing at various venues around town so that you can introduce your tush-shaking tots to the joys of watching their favorite bands play live.  Check websites (or our calendar of events!) to see when these bands have local gigs.
