Not Too Close Concert Series: Miss Paula and the Candy Bandits on AADL.TV


Sunday November 15, 2020: 2:00pm to 2:30pm




Presented by the Summer Festival and the Ann Arbor District Library, the Not Too Close events took place in August 2020 in select city parks.

Clever and Quirky songs? Miss Paula knows how to write ‘em! From “Stand Right Up (Sit Back Down)” to “Simon Says” – these tunes embrace what it’s like to be a kid that knows how to follow rock-and-roll directions. No cleaning up your room with this band, it’s all about fun, fun, fun!

Miss Paula has been around for years, performing in her early years with Detroit faves The Roomates, Vertical Pillows and Motor Dolls. After having kids in the late 90’s – writing kids tunes was on her agenda. She formed the all-mom punk rockin’ kiddie tune “Candy Band” in 2002 and released 5 Albums and travelled around the Midwest for 12 years performing everywhere from Lollapallooza to NYC Kindiefest. They were even featured on the “Today Show”.

The Summer Festival worked closely with the City of Ann Arbor Parks and Recreation Department to deliver this socially distanced concert. In accordance with the governor’s executive orders at the time, attendance was capped at 100 people for each event.
