You never know exactly what’s in store when ScribbleJim and ScribbleJayne perform.
“Most of the time, we make up our set on the spot,” revealed James Dague, who is better known as ScribbleJim. “It depends on the group.”
The audience will be 100 percent involved in the show. Check for yourself when the duo from ScribbleMonster performs an “Eat to the Beat” concert, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 6 at Jewett Park Pavilion, 836 Jewett Park Drive, Deerfield.
“We’re there many summers,” Dague said of the Jewett Park location. “It’s always a really, really fun group. It’s a beautiful park and a great location in the park where we play. Families bring lunch and then, after lunch, play along with us.
“Everything that we do is designed to give kids opportunities to be creative and to be successful with what we give them to do,” Dague added. “It’s creative play that’s facilitated by us through music.”
