Rocknocerus, Kyle & Kelly coming to downtown Culpeper

Judging by the crowd at the KidZone Play Park at Spotsylvania Towne Centre this morning, many of us are seeking winter activities for our little ones. Culpeper Renaissance has announced two upcoming concerts by well-known kids’ groups that will be coming to the Depot, at 111 South Commerce Street in downtown Culpeper. The shows are on two Saturdays–Feb. 4 and March 3. Both run from 5 to 6 p.m. Admission is $5 for every person 1 year or older. Pizza and drinks will be available for sale. Doors open at 4 p.m.

The Feb. 4 show will feature Rocknocerus, and the March 3 show will feature Kyle & Kelly. Here is a brief description of both groups:

Rocknoceros, a kid-friendly power pop trio, will perform on February 4th. Rocknoceros (pronounced like Rhinoceros) is made up of three guys, Coach Cotton, Williebob, and Boogie Woogie Bennie, who make wildly popular, award-winning music for the entire family.  They have dominated the Washington D.C. children’s music scene and have won a remarkable seven Washington Area Music Awards, including their fourth consecutive “Best Children’s Music Artist” award in 2011. Recently, Rocknoceros has gained significant national recognition with their single “Pink!” reaching number one on Sirius/XM Kids Place Live “13 under 13” countdown.  Plan to be charmed by their wondrous and whimsical tunes!

The winter fun continues downtown on March 3rd with The Magical Illusions of Kyle & Kelly. Be prepared for magic, music, and illusions presented by Kyle and Kelly, a husband and wife magic team specializing in family-friendly magic and illusion shows for over 25 years. Their magic has taken them all over the world. Fresh off of a performance on Carnival Cruise Lines, they are now bringing their award-winning magic to Culpeper!  Their interactive show is a mix of magic, comedy, and grand illusion that promises to captivate and enthrall everyone.
