Because kids deserve hip music too!

Bebop for Babies was born out of Jeannette Lambert’s quest for music that mixed the spontaneity of jazz sensibilities and great kids' songs.  The band members are all great jazz players so the level of musicianship is high and the music is performed with joy and respect.

Jeannette LambertJeannette says "Knowing how children love repetition, I wanted to create music for kids that the entire family could enjoy together.  These are songs that we all love as well. Performing them as if they were jazz standards, that just came naturally."

In the past our group performed at the Rochester Jazz Festival and the London International Children's Festival where all of our concerts were sold-out. We performed at  Jazz Sudbury Festival in Sudbury (where Jeannette and Reg grew up) and at JazzFM's Jazz for Kids series in Toronto.

You can download our music from iTunes so you can dance along at home.

We performed some great concerts  with JJ and Theo joining us on stage.  And thanks to all the kids who came and jammed with us too!
