The BCRAC believes that the Arts are a fundamental part of each and every one of us and, as such, should be enjoyed by all. The Arts engage imagination, nurture creativity and ignite learning. Extending curriculum through the Arts deepens the experience and the learning that you provide to your students. This is why we believe that the Arts and students are a natural fit. We widen the horizons of students when we offer them the experience of art in its many forms.

  • Hot Peas 'n Butter

    Music for Every Nation & Generation

    Hot Peas 'N Butter is an award-winning, multicultural family music band that wows thousands of young audiences across the nation every year with their highly energetic and interactive musical style. With eight award-winning albums and numerous music videos (some of which have been featured on Nick Jr. and Nickelodeon TV), Hot Peas ‘N Butter makes new friends everywhere they go.

    Named for the playground game they played as kids, Hot Peas ‘n Butter incorporates many languages into their performances - English, Spanish, French, Korean and Hebrew just to name a few. 

    Lauded for their “hot and mellow multicultural groove” by the Los Angeles Times, Hot Peas ‘N Butter mixes a tasty combination of traditional Latin music, Afro-Caribbean rhythms, jazz, bluegrass, country, and rock, bringing fans of all ages to their feet. Indeed, “This serving is the kind that will please musical appetites” (New York Times); and “Their music is a rainbow of color and sound” (NY 1 TV).

    Led by Danny Lapidus, the touring band also includes Rich Mercurio (drums), Jorge Vazquez (vocals and percussion) and Steve Jabas (vocals and guitar).  Ian Jesse (vocals and bass), Lisette Santiago (vocals and percussion) and Chris Tedesco (fiddle) are recent additions to the band. Each album also invites an array of musical guests to round out the sound.
