Congrats to my winner: polly
About a month ago, I received an email asking me if I was interested in reviewing a new CD from a group called The Dirty Sock Funtime Band. Here's a bit about the band, from a press release that we received:
Known as the highest energy kids’ rock band ever to break out of NYC, The Dirty Sock Funtime Band was voted “Best Kids’ Band” by readers of Time Out NY Kids. According to MTV’s Evan James, the DSFB plays “some of the most innovative and exciting children’s music EVER.” CNN described them as “distinguished by rocking beats combined with silly, visual lyrics (think Muppets take MTV).” FOX News declared, “Find out why kids, parents and critics alike are falling in love with the first real rock band for kids.” Chris Barron, proud parent and lead singer of the Spin Doctors enthused, “Finally, a rock band for kids that really rocks!”The press release also noted that The Dirty Sock Funtime band is already a popular one with lots of families, thanks to their music videos showing on the Nick Jr. channel's show- Jack's Big Music Show. We don't have cable, so we haven't caught the show before, but the group and the new CD, Sock-A-Delic, sounded interesting, so I happily agreed to do the review.
When the CD arrived and I popped it into our CD player, I was so happy that we'd received it! The Dirty Sock Funtime Band is great! They have the essential combination of factors that I believe all great kids' musicians need- quality music, fun lyrics that both kids and parents enjoy, and super-high energy! We were only on the second song on the album before Ethan was bopping his head and starting to dance along. And by song #3 on the CD, I was laughing at the lyrics and tapping my foot along too. Full-blown dancing broke out in our living room soon after that.
I love CDs that I can put in the player and know that they're immediately going to improve the mood of our home. Sock-A-Delic is definitely one of those!
