with

THE DIRTY SOCK FUNTIME BAND’S

SOCK-A-DELIC CD & THEIR FIRST DVD!

Our take on the Dirty Sock Funtime Band in two words- They’re AWESOME! I am completely obsessed with the song I attached below “Music everywhere”. It’s fantastic and so fun to dance to. My kids love the CD and the DVD we have been watching, listening and dancing to them. The Dirty Sock Funtime Band is so catchy and fun it is definitely a band that has high energy and is perfect for moving and dancing to. Probably why my kids love them so much they are dancers! This is the perfect music to get those silly’s out and use some energy. Speaking of which if you are on a quest to lose weight like I am. This is the DVD for you. I think I have burned more energy (and fat) dancing and jumping around with this DVD then I do on my nightly walks plus it’s a ton of fun!

Now what other people think—-

“The Dirty Sock Funtime Band: This band may have the perfect name for dancing feet. The group’s music, as exemplified on its new album, Sock-a-Delic, is a signature mix of rock, funk, hip-hop and country.” – The New York Times

“Sometimes groups are as down to earth as a pair of dirty socks. Case in point: The Dirty Sock Funtime Band, whose influences include Zappa, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, the Muppets, and Funkadelic.” – New York Post

“This band really rocks. Songs like ‘Music Everywhere’ make it hard to sit still, and I’m still smiling at the whimsy of some of the group’s lyrics. Kids’ bands always say they make music that parents can enjoy too. This band actually achieves it.” – The Morning Call

Beloved by millions of families for their high-energy music videos on the Nick Jr. channel’s Jack’s Big Music Show, The Dirty Sock Funtime Band’s Sock-A-Delic CD and The Dirty Sock Funtime Band DVD showcase the band’s “We show kids that they rock” spirit.

The outrageous popularity of The Dirty Sock Funtime Band is easy to understand from a kids’ point of view, for their shows are interactive spectacles involving rock band, dancers, comedy, and costumes. The band’s six-to-eight members really know how to fill the stage with action: it’s better than a three-ring circus. Each member has his or her own role to play and distinctive personality to project, but they all come together like clockwork. And what a sound! Their music is polyphonic to the max with melodic lines and supercharged rhythms weaving in and out like a great Dixieland band with everyone wailing on the final chorus. The action onstage is as fascinating as a perfectly timed basketball team. The stunning impact of this stage energy is balanced by the cleverness of the compositions and the smartness of lyrics that offer large words and large ideas, all seasoned with the band’s own brand of belly laugh comedy. The singing, the comedy, the playing, the dancing … it all fits together into one big kaleidoscopic thrill.

That same “total entertainment” concept of The Dirty Sock Funtime Band’s live shows comes through loud and clear on the band’s CDs and music videos. Both their Sock-A-Delic CD and The Dirty Sock Funtime Band DVD inhabit a world where anything can happen. Timing is everything for this band, and the timing of the humor and the smartness of the lyrics are only surpassed by the first rate quality of their singing and playing. It seems The Dirty Sock Funtime Band must have a pipeline straight to the cleverest part of a kid’s brain. With an effortless vivacity, the group romps through every style from country and western to funk, rock, and beyond on Sock-A-Delic. The Dirty Sock Funtime Band DVD combines live action comedy, animated videos, and puppetry, plus interactive dance-a-longs and sing-a-longs, to capture and maintain kids’ interest. The DVD is filled with a stunning array of music videos and also includes three pilot episodes for The Dirty Sock Funtime Band TV series.

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!”
