Whether you’d like a K-5 literacy-centric assembly, a special concert for your preschool, a program at your library, a private party, church event, community group concert, or public event, The Cat’s Pajamas has got you covered!
The Cats bring a musical comedy twist to high-octane kid-rock! We come as small as a duo, and as large as an 8-piece band. Whatever the size, The Cats plunge the audience into a wild wonderful world of stories, puppets and props, with sophisticated music guaranteed to delight all ages. Lead singer Janet Schreiner draws from a background in theater and music education to form an instant connection with audiences everywhere The Cats perform. Educators rave about the band’s literacy-centric assemblies “Reading Rocks” and “Cat Tales.” Presenters up and down the East Coast have booked The Cat’s Pajamas for the crowds they attract and the electric performances they deliver. Don’t miss the musical joyride that is The Cat’s Pajamas – a family music must-see!
Bring Reading Rocks! or Cat Tales to your school!
Reading Rocks! is our literacy-centric, kick-in-the-pants elementary school assembly for grades K-5. Our 45-60 minute show celebrates books and the kids who read them, with an award-winning companion piece CD. The high-octane rock sound gets the entire K-5 crowd singing, moving and dancing in the aisles with great storytelling music, including songs like “Read To Me,” “Library Song,” and “Alphabet Soup.” Book us for Read Across America month or as a standardized testing incentive. We can kick off your school year, perk it up in the middle or end it with a BANG!
Cat Tales is our preschool and daycare show – same Cat’s Pajamas, with songs and stories tailored to fit your little kittens!
“I would like to thank you for a thrilling afternoon of entertainment. Your magnificent stage presence and communication with the student audience was breathtaking. Thank you for the best show around.” - Barbara Heckard, Principal of Southeast Elementary School
"I could tell from just watching the children react to your performance that they thoroughly enjoyed themselves, but when one of the teachers told me that the adult chaperons had every bit as much fun as the children, I knew The Cat's Pajamas had the magic formula!” - Judy Hickman, Light Up The Queen Foundation, Reading Rocks! presenter
We also offer a Visiting Artist album discount! In conjunction with the concert, your school community can purchase our albums and DVDs at 33% off. We provide you with materials to send home and give your families autographed albums at a great price!

Have a crowd? Need some great entertainment? You’re in luck! We can dazzle your group of any size at a block party, community festival, or corporate event, with a band sized to fit your budget.
The Cat’s Pajamas love singing in libraries, and libraries love us back. In 2002, The Cat's Pajamas were chosen by the PA Library Association as PA State Musicians and commissioned to write the theme song for Summer Reading Club, and we’ve played hundreds of library concerts for thousands of great families. We are available for shows year-round and can tailor performances around your SRC theme.
And yes – we play private parties (we can even bring the party favors)!
