Craig Parks bills himself as a Jewish kids musician, but he brings so much more to the performance than music. His personality, combined with his former work as a camp director made him well-qualified to engage everyone at his Kansas City concert — from the youngest children to the oldest grandparents. Much of the crowd lingered after the show, and it turned into a great, community-building event. As a Jewish communal professional, and as a mother of younger children, I would highly recommend him.

Craig Parks ’ music has a magical influence on his audience.  His spirit, his soul and his love of music and people emanate through the songs he sings.  Craig’s performances portray a deep love of Judaism, a knowledge of the newest and greatest songs (including the songs he writes!), an understanding of people of all ages, and an enthusiasm that radiates with every note and verse.  Craig is one of the magnificent Jewish performers of our time!!

Craig Parks exudes warmth and excitement when he performs for children. His love of Jewish music is easily understood by Jewish children of all ages. He is an asset to helping us go from “dor l’dor” from generation to generation.

Craig’s energetic and fun style of songleading brings new life to old favorites and a new love for Jewish songs whenever he strums his guitar.

Craig posseses a gift that is rare and cherished: he has the ability to connect and reach our young people and to make such a difference in their lives.  The Jewish community stands proud and strong because of Craig’s positive effect on our children.
