The Little Red Wagon Family Band

It was inevitable that Alexa, 11, and Avery, 10,  would make a career in music.  Dad, Jack Roemer plays bass in a classic rock tribute band and Mom, Kelly Rae, fronts her own country band. In April 2015, the girls formed their own band and recorded an original CD, “Songs About Dogs”. Their goal was to raise awareness and money for animals in shelters. After a whirlwind year of shows and press, it was time to merge these acts and the Little Red Wagon Family band was born!

Mosey on over to our FREE TAG-A-KID service and we’ll place a wristband on the kids. If you are separated, we can help round ‘em up.

Big crowds can be like a giant round-up to kids — to avoid separating from them, give your kids the same advice you would if you were anywhere else: don’t go off with strangers or anyone without telling you first. If they get lost, have them ask for help from a policeman or any festival staff with a radio to return to Tag-A-Kid.
