Kidsrock: Miss Paula and the Candy Bandits

Sunday, June 23 at 7PM | Rackham Stage

Genres: Pop Punk, Children’s Music

Detroit-based guitarist and singer-songwriter Paula Menssner, also known as Miss Paula, performs candy-coated punk that the whole family can enjoy. Before dominating the kids music scene, Miss Paula was known for her bands The Roomates, Vertical Pillows, and Motor Dolls. After becoming a mother to two daughters in 1998, she reworked classic nursery rhymes into rock and roll tunes with her punk rock group The Candy Band, releasing five albums and performing everywhere from Lollapalooza  to NYC Kindiefest. In 2015, Miss Paula returned with a new line-up that includes saxophonist Ryan Bills, bassist Rob Messner, drummer Darryl Pierce, and backup vocalist Liz Fornal. You may have seen them around town performing at the Detroit Zoo, DSO Tiny Tots concerts, and various libraries, schools, parks, and playgrounds. With two albums and one children’s storybook compiled of her favorite original kids songs under her belt, Miss Paula is going strong and continues to entertain kids and adults. Put on your dancing shoes and have some fun with Miss Paula and the Candy Bandits at A2SF this summer!
