Wake Up With The Waves Returns To Santa Monica Pier This Saturday Morning:

The acclaimed free children’s concert series “Wake Up With The Waves” returns to the Santa Monica Pier on Saturday mornings, starting this weekend.

Now in its 9th year, the free series will continue through May 16, children 1-8 and their parents can enjoy interactive concerts and activities including singing, dancing and movement, puppets, talent shows, dress-up, face-painting, prizes, and bubbles.

Veteran producer KC Mancebo of Clamorhouse Kids is teaming up the energetic Greg and Sienna Markles of Small Fry Entertainment to bring an amazing line-up of children’s entertainers.

“It’s Saturday morning, you look at your kids, they look restless. What do you do?  What…do…you…do? Pop on the TV or get them out to get active, involved, and maybe even inspired,” says S. Jay Farrand, Pier Administrator.  “With all the studies about how music improves cognitive development, it’s a no brainer (sorry, brain puns). And it’s a great way to start the day with some fresh-air, and then you’ve got all the family fun of the Pier afterwards.”

This year’s line up brings a mix of Pier favorites like Latin Grammy winner Lucky Diaz and former Ray Charles back-up singer Birdie’s Playhouse, musical impresarios, and a band that Michelle Obama invited to play the White House as part of her initiative to get kids moving.  

All concerts are held from 10:30 am to noon on the Santa Monica Pier. For more information on these shows and all activities at the Santa Monica Pier, call 310.458.8900 or visit www.WakeUpWithTheWaves.com.
