Tim Kubart and the Space Cadets – November 3

Tim Kubart & The Space Cadets

Tim Kubart’s concerts are an indie pop dance party for all ages. Joined on stage by his band, the “Space Cadets” (and a tap-dancing sidekick!), Tim performs songs celebrating real life kid and family moments and milestones. No matter the venue, a Tim Kubart and the Space Cadets show is highly interactive, musically rich, and always speaks to kids at the top of their intelligence.
