Prior to the performance, those in attendance were treated to activities in the lobby sponsored by http://www.springfieldmoms.org/, the Junior League of Springfield and Lincoln Land Community College’s College for Kids program.
Following the morning performance, front man Ralph Covert and the rest of the band headed to St. John’s Children’s Hospital for an afternoon performance for hospital patients, patient families, and employee families. At the hospital’s Bunn Auditorium, a similar atmosphere of musical fun engulfed the attendees. As with the morning performance, those in attendance were encouraged to not only dance and move around the room, but also join the band on stage for a few numbers and even make a conga line-like train that traveled around the room for the duration of one particularly appropriate song.
Ralph’s brand of musical fun is infectious for both kids and grown-ups and we hope to welcome him back to Springfield sometime in the near future!
