Yeah, yeah! Yeah, yeah!
LOL….introducing- “The Rattles!”

This super fun and fabulous band is happy to be releasing their debut CD, Rattle On. So, you know how everyone wants to say “they sound like” such and such a band? OK, they do, but with their own funky-fun twist! I put the CD on in the car on the way to work/school one morning (at 6 am!) and I was like- huh! This sounds like the Beatles! (Pleasantly surprised! And I didn’t even read that that was a goal of theirs until a week later- lol….)
I told this to the hubs, who says- yeah, mmmk. Until he heard it- and he liked it! This is not a man who tolerates kids music and TV well.

The Rattles Band was created by Tony Caio to give parents and their children a non-violent, family friendly musical experience they all can enjoy. Tony Caio is an is an award winning animation director for such well-known licensed characters as “The Sneetches” by Dr. Seuss, “Curious George Goes to a Chocolate Factory” for Scholastic, and “Hollywood Betty Boop”.
“Friends that play together, stay together!” That’s The Rattles’ motto! And it’s prevalent in their songs. This fun, hip, happy and “dance-y” music will really get you and your little one moving, while pumping out positive messages about caring and sharing- WITHOUT making you want to gag 🙂 YAY, Rattles!

The Rattles come straight from the swamps of Central New Jersey.

(Go Jersey!!!)
The Rattles are four musicians and life-long friends – Gus (the goat), Kitty (the cat), Sal (the snake), and Hal (the hippo) – who describe their upcoming release as “the album we were born to make.” Their manager Benny (a dog) and a bunch of roadies (penguins) all named Elvis help The Rattles take their show on the road.
They play classic sounds, catchy sounds, and will make you want to shake your groove thing! (Yeah-yeah!)
My kids and the kids at my Pre-School LOVED the Rattles! My early AM kids get to pick the CDs for wee hours of the day- and the fav lately has been THE RATTLES! They like “Lucky Sam’s Banana Stand” as a majority, but Little Man likes “1-2-3 Count with Me” and “Good Bye Yesterday”- which is also my favorite. If that came on in the car, I would leave it. I would! That’s how you know it’s good.
If you click here you can hear some of their music and see a music video!
When you go to their website, not only can you purchase the CD, but there are music videos, photos, printable coloring pages, and groovy games! How fun is that?! Plus, your little guys can join the Rattles fan club! (That is too sweet!)
The Rattles want to spread the joy of music and friendship to one of my lucky readers!
Want it to be you? (Of course you do!)
