Joyful FAQ

What is The Joyful Smiles Tour?

A 23 date tour featuring MC Lars and Koo Koo Kanga Roo. You can get your tickets here.

Who is MC Lars?

He’s a theologian, a comedian, a rapper and an Oakland resident. Check out his songs.

Where are you playing?

200-400 capacity venues across North America. Most of which are bars.

Bars?! I thought you were a kids band?

Don’t worry.  Most of the shows are “All Ages” events, which means that anybody can come to the show!

We’re a kids band that sometimes plays at bars! 

Which shows are NOT All Ages?

10/11- SOMERVILLE, MA: 21+
10/12 - ROCHESTER, NY: 16+
10/13- TORONTO, ON: 19+
10/17- CHICAGO, IL: 17+
10/18 - DALLAS, TX: 16+
10/22- FULLERTON, CA: 21+
10/27- PORTLAND, OR: 21+

Many venues will allow underage patrons into age restricted shows if accompanied by a parent or guardian. So if you’re a parent wanting to bring your kids to any of these shows, contact the venue in question and ask them what their policy is.

What time will you be playing each night?

We’ll play first most nights (exceptions being St. Paul, MN and any show with other local support bands). Our set will start somewhere between 30 and 60 minutes after the doors open. You should follow us on twitter. We’ll tweet our set time each day!

I’m a teacher! Can you visit our school during the day of your show in my city?

Due to a very busy travel schedule we will not be able to visit any schools on this tour.  We’ll be spending our days en route to and setting up for each evening’s show.

Play "POP SEE KO"! 

That is a demand, not a question. Very rude of you. We will only play that song if properly bribed. 

What’s the story behind “Joyful Smiles”?

It’s a catch phrase and mantra coined by MC Lars on this summer’s Vans Warped Tour.  It’s just fun to say!
