About the Performers
Storytime with the Moscow Public Library is presented in conjunction with the Latah County Library District’s summer reading program, which encourages school-aged children to engage in reading and learning throughout the summer.
The Matt Baker Comedy + Stunt Show
Matt Baker’s show is a unique combination of hilarious stand-up comedy and amazing stunts. His diverse skill set has landed him 3 Guinness World Records and appearances on The Late Late Show with James Corden, America’s Got Talent and Last Comic Standing.
His hip, energetic, comedy stunt show is action packed with funny stories, audience participation and incredible skills that engage audience members of all ages. With clever comedy and jaw dropping stunts like catching a bowling ball on his head, spearing vegetables on spikes, escaping handcuffs and juggling with his mouth, Matt’s show rivals no other.
Moscow Arts Commission Band
One favorite feature of Entertainment in the Park is the Moscow Arts Commission Band, or MAC Band, a group of volunteer musicians led by director Albert Miller. A longstanding part of Moscow’s summer arts programming, the MAC Band performs a variety of musical styles. You’ll have a chance to see summer performances by the MAC Band at Entertainment in the Park and at the Moscow Farmers Market.
The Reptile Lady
Snakes, alligators, and lizards! Interact with reptiles from all over the world in this educational and fun event with the Reptile Lady, April Jackson. This fan-favorite performance is for families with children of all ages.
Steppesun is the project of songwriter Paul Busch. His folk-pop sound is reminiscent of Paul Simon and the satire of Randy Newman with an environmental bent.
