The band got its break in the direction of family-friendly music in 2006 when the Allstars were asked to play a Show in the Myriad Gardens Twilight Series.
The rest is history.
They went on to record their first album of entirely children’s music in 2007, the same year they did their first tours with PLS and the Metropolitan Library System in Oklahoma City.
This year’s touring performances in the Summer Reading Program are sponsored by the Oklahoma Department of Libraries, Institute of Museum and Library Services, Oklahoma Arts Council, the Anne and Henry Zarrow Foundation, Hitachi, Sonic, the Pioneer Library System Foundation and the Pioneer Library System.
