The Starry Plough- Children's Music Night


I’ve been sitting on this secret for a while.  The big secret is the Starry Plough in Berkeley. Each second Saturday of the month from 3:30- 6pm Leo Mascarenhas leads his band, SaravaZamba, in world music for children. You can bring your kid instruments, let your children dance and socialize.  You, yourself, can sit down, relax, socialize, have a drink and get dinner.  It’s really the best way to end a Saturday.  


This free show is a fabulous all ages show and a fantastic way to introduce your children to music and the stage.  At breaks the band lets the kids get up on stage to try out their musical and vocal stylings.  I love that we get to visit with our adult friends while our kids safely play, dance, sing and get an exposure to music that is hard to come by.  I really can’t believe it’s free! (Tips are appreciated). So, what are you doing the next second Saturday?

Any other wonderful family outings we are missing out on?  Please share in comments.  As always, thank you for reading!



I'm a part-time work from home, full time stay at home mom to two daughters and an Australian Labradoodle puppy. We are enjoying our last year before big girl school, playing with friends, swapping childcare to get the job done and getting crafty when we can fit it in. We live together in a wonderful community that we are truly thankful for and proud to be a part of. It takes a village and this is ours.
