Our kids LOVE Mr. Jon. In June 2018, we had him as the entertainment for a combo birthday party for our daughter (turning 4) and son (turning 6). Guests ranged from 3 to 7 years old mostly. ALL were engaged and had an amazing time! We also had an extremely high turn out for the party. I mean, my kids are cool and all, but I think having Mr. Jon headline the event helped increase attendance. Sooo, be ready for all those wiggly children (who are amazingly obedient for Mr. Jon, even when he has them sit down for a silly book)! He had great communication before the party, showed up on time, played for as long as he said (maybe a bit longer...bonus), and was a very pleasant party guest. HIGHLY recommend!
We had Mr. Jon & Friends at my son's 4th birthday party in September, it was a huge success. There is no better way to keep the kids entertained! The kids ages ranged from 6 months to 11 years old. Mr. Jon had everyone grooving and a shaking. We try to see Mr. Jon perform any chance we can get. Both my 4 1/2 year old and 6 1/2 year old daughter can never get enough! Thanks Mr. Jon, tell George we say hi! ;)
Mr Jon is very professional but at the same time amazingly good with the kids. He had them dancing a laughing right from the start. My kids have been fans since they saw him at the library and recently we hired him for a birthday party. Highly recommended

Singer/Songwriter Jon Lewis had a decade of playing shows in coffee houses, recording CD's, and having opportunities like being on a T.V. show, being a finalist in a national songwriting competition, and having international radio play from Belize to Ireland. In 2008, Jon and his wife Carrie started their family. And in 2009, Jon started working in the Children’s Department of the downtown Frederick MD library doing programs and shows for large groups of kids. These two big events started something new for Jon – songwriting for kids, and playing children’s birthday party shows and kids festivals. Jon went on to record his first album for kids and their families called Mr. Jon & Friends at Grammy Award winning studio Acacia Recording & Production. After it’s release, his CD quickly became a top seller on CDbaby, and also won a 2013 Parents’ Choice Award. Now Mr. Jon plays over 100 shows a year for kids, sharing the stage with bands like The Pop Ups and The Imagination Movers. And he has also released his second family album called Get Your Move On which has become a top seller on CDbaby as well.
