Forman and his Western jazz band, Cow Bop, appeared at the club as part of its cowboy theme day. Children in flannel shirts and bandanas danced and giggled through the performance. "Most kids' relationship with music comes out of electronic boxes," Forman said. Show by show, class by class, he hopes to change that.
