Our Celebrate Brooklyn Pick of the Week!

By Meredith Deliso

This ones for the kids.

Celebrate Brooklyn all about the family this month, when Dan Zanes comes to the Prospect Park band shell on July 16.

Its all part of the festivals annual Ezra Jack Keats Family Concert, which celebrates the legacy of the trailblazing childrens author with readings and music.

Zanes is a trailblazer of another sort. The wild haired, Fort Greene-based rocker sits comfortably atop the kiddie music thrown, which hes dominated since releasing Rocket Ship Beach more than 10 years ago, introducing children and adults alike to his laid-back, rock and roll groove that urges kids to jump up lets shake as he plucks a banjo, guitar or mandolin while sporting one of his cheery, colorful suits.

Here, Zanes and crew will team up with the Brooklyn Youth Orchestra and dancers from Bed Stuy Veterans for a full-fledged party that will sure to get you jumping up and shaking your hips.
