    Cool rock music 😎🎶
    Cute kids (maybe not kids but I’m an old fart). I think this is a fun show.

      Ry Kincaid remains an endlessly clever songwriter and Library Rock showcases his unique wit and musical chops. Backed by the best librarian band west of the Mississippi (DDC – 900 – Geography and History), this show is a great time no matter the timeslot.

        A fun show! Ry brought so much humor to the classification of books. And the band joined in the fun which resulted in a light joyful show.

    Some great original rock music, joyous and fun! These librarians even made my teenager laugh and smile.

    The music is awesome with great audience engagement! Family friendly and fun, as a former librarian I give this two thumbs up!

    Librarian rock stars!?
    Who knew the Dewey Decimal System could be that much fun.

    Ry is talented! Wit, humor, singing, storytelling, and audience engagement.

    You can judge a show by an audience’s enthusiastic applause throughout the show. It’s good fun to see kids, parents, audience, and fellow Fringe performers smiling, singing, and laughing that way.

    What a blast! The songs are clever and funny, the music is outright good, and the performance is really engaging. I’m not sure if I’d classify this show as 781 (music), 817 (American wit and humor) or 782 (musical theater) but I know it belongs where ever fun should be in the library. Well done everyone!
