Yo Gabba Gabba Live! Get The Sillies Out

Sharing is caring!

Dealing with live kids shows can be a labor of love. You want your children to have an experience like no other, but you know that there may be meltdowns, tantrums and all around craziness in the process. The show better be worth all of that. I think we may have found that show.

Get the sillies out

Yesterday, we were invited to see Yo Gabba Gabba Live! Get The Sillies Out at the Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, NJ. Besides the insane price for parking 3 blocks away (20 dollars?! But, the show is only an hour and change!) and the fact that we had to stand outside until show time (kids don’t like cold, y’all), it was an amazing show. The Wellmont and Yo Gabba Gabba teams showed everyone a great time and were very helpful, especially when it came to keeping the kids happy and excited. 

Muno Plex Foofa Toodee Brobee

As the show started, you could her kids and parents alike anticipating the arrival of their favorite characters. I have to admit, even I was delighted to see it all start. As DJ Lance, Muno, Brobee, Foofa, TooDee and Plex arrived on stage, the crowd went crazy. And in surprising turn of events, my extrovert kids were star-struck. They couldn’t believe that the Gabba Land family had jumped right out of the giant screen on stage into their state. It was a magic, I tell ya!

There was talk of parties in tummies, Muno’s love of bugs, how not to be afraid, and how awesome bubbles are. Then it happened. They made the announcement. It was time for Biz’s beat of the day

Biz Markie

As I looked at my husband, OUR eyes lit up and WE were star-struck. Two 80s babies were about to see one of our favorite rappers and beatboxers. If that wasn’t enough, they did a dance interlude where Biz Markie hit the ones and twos (that’s urban vernacular for turntables) and created a dance party for us right in the theater! Adults and kids alike were jamming to Michael Jackson and more. 

The show ended with all the characters expressing how much fun they had here in Montclair and would see us all soon. It also ended in my 2-year-old crying on Daddy’s shoulder. It’s tough to say goodbye to friends.

All and all, I’d have to say this show was fantastic and entertaining for all, and because the Wellmont Theatre is an intimate setting, it really felt like we were singing, playing and partying with friends, old and new. And yes, we can’t wait to see them again.

Disclosure: We were given tickets to the Yo Gabba Gabba Live show for review. All opinions are my own.

    I took Ayva to see Yo Gabba Gabba last year, and it was, hands down, the BEST concert I’ve ever been to! When Biz came out, the adults went BANANAS!! So glad you all had fun!
