Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood Band

Fred Rogers takes us backstage in his neighborhood to introduce the three-piece who provided the soundtrack to Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood

The legacy of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood was never in question, but an overlooked aspect of the show is the three-piece house band, fronted with John Costa’s colorful piano, Carl McVickie Jr on bass, and drummer Bobby Rawsthorne, who provided the show’s recognizable soundtrack.

A show that provided many firsts growing up, Fred Rogers takes us backstage to introduce what was for many, their first favorite jazz group.
