National Touring Band Brings the Funk to Berkeley Heights’ Kids & Families

Sugar Free Allstars - Boom and Dr Rock on bikesBERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ-Pete’s Place at Yogoccino is about to go national in a big way this Sunday, March 15. No, it’s not becoming a chain, but rather, a critically acclaimed Midwestern funk/rock duo for kids and families is making its way through the northeast and has chosen Pete’s Place for its first-ever New Jersey performance.

Local family concert promoter and musician Jason Didner with Knock-Knock Entertainment had learned that Sugar Free Allstars ( would be touring in this region and reached out to the duo to discuss performance opportunities in the garden state. “Pete’s Place seemed like such a natural fit for this show,” Jason said. “My own duo performances with Miss Nina were such a hit there that I felt we established a bit of a habit that could translate to touring acts coming through the area. And Sugar Free Allstars, my own family has such a fun time listening to their energetic, funky tunes, it seemed only natural to want to share this with New Jersey’s kids.”

The two performers, nicknamed “Boom” and “Dr. Rock,” who make up Sugar Free Allstars, have racked up an impressive set of career credentials in the world of kids’ music. Two of their songs have held the coveted #1 slot on SiriusXM Radio’s “Kids Place Live” program’s weekly countdown. Additionally, TIME Magazine hailed Sugar Free Allstars as one of the top 12 children’s music acts in America.
