Critics compare Justin Roberts  to Buddy Holly, Nick Lowe, Weezer and even Paul McCartney. Millions have seen him on The Today Show and Nick Jr., TV, and one of his songs was featured on a World Series broadcast. A former Montessori preschool teacher, Justin clearly remembers what it was like to be a kid, and his high-energy pop sound will bring everyone in the family to their feet, dancing and singing along.
 
At his annual Just Kidding performances, Justin will perform hits like "Willy Was a Whale" and "Pop Fly," plus new songs from his forthcoming summer release, Recess.
 
Justin’s eighth family music CD, Lullaby, reached the top of several “Best of 2012” lists.  Justin was nominated for a Grammy award for his 2010 release Jungle Gym, and  he has won six Parents' Choice awards for his original music for today’s families.
