Fresh Beat Dance Party

We are Fresh Beat Band Fans in our house, maybe a little more so than what might be considered reasonable. It started when Nick Jr played the video for “Here We Go” 45 times a day while I was trapped under a nursing baby. At first I was all “What is this?” and then I was all “Hey, it’s sort of not terrible” and then I was totally “WE GOT A GREEN LIGHT! WE’RE GONNA TAKE A RIDE! COME ON!” I fully admit it’s sort of ridiculous and also that I don’t really care. I’m not even ashamed to telly you I cried a little when we went to see The Fresh Beats in concert (for the record, I haven’t been to a grown up concert in YEARS) and we are planning to go again if they tour next year.

Obviously the Fresh Beats first album was already in regular rotation for preschool drop-off, but their new album is even better for twofold reasons that I will tell you now. One fold: In addition to original music, some of the new songs are actually real songs that have been made kid-friendly (Holiday by Madonna is surprisingly perfect for toddlers). Two fold: There are a couple of songs from the Fresh Beats Yo Gabba Gabba episode which is Caroline’e favorite episode so we bust out the really good dance moves for those. Although really, all their dance moves are the best.

“This is Kiki and this is Twist. He’s a cool guy!”

And then the FBB version of “I’m Yours” (with actual singing by Jason Mraz!) came on and this happened. I’m actually writing to you from the grave, because I died of cuteness.

Now that our time outside is limited by cold, short days, I sense a lot more dance parties in our future. We’ve definitely got the beat.

I was sent a copy of the Fresh Beat Band’s new album The Fresh Beat Band: More Music From The Hit TV Show Vol. 2 for free for me to review because I bugged their PR person a bunch. For more Fresh Beat Band information and fun, visit http://www.nickjr.com/the-fresh-beat-band/ or http://www.facebook.com/freshbeatband/

    Ok, I’m going to need some info on Caroline’s jumper/romper because it is beyond adorable.

    Seriously.

    Confession: I sort of miss the old weird story based songs like loco legs and tap it out. I get why they went the pop coed monkees route, but wherefore art thou mrs piccolo?

  3. My husband is a music snob so that kind of stuff doesn’t make it into the house, heh!

    I would totally have died of cuteness at that last picture, too! Sibling love is the sweetest. We haven’t gotten in to the Fresh Beat Band at our house, but I’m definitely going to check them out – my girls love to dance, and I’m pretty sick of the rest of the shows they’re watching right now….

    LOL That is awesome. I have never heard the Fresh Beat Band..I’ve never seen most of the shows you talk about. lol! But I will see if the library has any copies of the show or music for us to check out. Maybe we’ll add them to our kid music library with They Might Be Giants. :D
